“August doesn’t believe in most things, but it’s hard to argue that Jane wasn’t put on the Q to fuck up her whole life.”
This story follows the cynical August, a curvy bisexual who is new to New York. While on the subway she meets Jane a super hot lesbian old school punk rocker. Their world becoming entangled due to the undeniable attraction they feel towards each other, the only issue is, Jane is actually from the 1970s. But August is dedicated to helping her even if that means losing her.
Since I enjoyed Red White & Blue by Casey McQuiston and was super excited to get the opportunity to read this book. The story was strange and I am not quite sure if I liked it or not, but it was fairly entertaining. I think the characters, friendships, romance and smut were great but the overall way the story unfolds and connects is a bit lacklustre for me. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I am left somewhat unsatisfied.
I really enjoyed the way she managed to intertwine real important historical events into the story and included so many important queer stories. This aspect is what made it hard for me to put the book down. The romance itself was cute and I did enjoy watching these two characters fall in love with each other. But it still fell short for me, but I totally think this is worth reading, especially if you’re Queer!
