“This crusade to fix herself was ending right now. She wasn’t broken. She saw and interacted with the world in a different way, but that was her. She could change her actions, change her words, change her appearance, but she couldn’t change the root of herself. At her core, she would always be autistic. People called it a disorder, but it didn’t feel like one. To her, it was simply the way she was.”
I AM NOT OKAY.
I was a little scared that this book wasn’t going to represent autism well but after learning the author is on the spectrum, I appreciate this book so much. There were parts that left me rolling my eyes because they were described in such weird ways. I loved and hated the fact that the book is so predicable.
Michael was amazing. Stella was amazing. I’m at a loss for words. Stella and Micheal are such lovable and relatable characters. They just want to be accepted and loved for who they are. The each have their own insecurities that make them so real. Although I don’t land on the autism spectrum, I do have anxiety. I know what it feels like to have people be afraid of you when they learn about your “condition“.
This book has a lot of steamy parts. If you’re not into visually graphic scenes, this is not the book for you. I promise.
One of my biggest downfalls with this book was the conflicted. It was something that could have easily been solved. I know it can cause a lot of problems in real life, but I’m getting tired of reading about it. I just wish authors came up with new conflicts so the book is a little less predictable.
Overall, I loved it. I feel all the feels.
