Thin type hard to read; manga-style drawings; juvenile story and characters; another pathetic teenage romance.

This is one of Tamaki's bittersweet romance stories that involves a toxic relationship. Beautiful illustrations and story line this book shows how important having good friends and family is... and to break up with a jerk. (The polite way.)

An interesting lgbt romance about a toxic relationship. I thought the illustrations were really well done.

Let’s start with the art. Incredible. I could spend all my time just examining interiors and plants and clothing. I’m in awe, and I’m smitten.
But not in the way Freddy is smitten. Freddy has an issue: Her girlfriend sucks. Big time. So what’s a girl to do? Decide to just call relationship poly? Invest in other friends? Stay preoccupied? Or recognize toxicity and break it off?
This book felt authentic and heartfelt. Love love love.

From TKB Teen Finn: The thing I enjoyed most about this book is how it shows that:
1. Toxic relationships can exist in queer relationships.
2. Toxic relationships in queer relationships consist of the same problems as straight relationships.
I would have LOVED a few full-color pages, but otherwise I think this book is amazing! I loved Doodle a lot! I think she is such a necessary character and balances out the other characters with her generally happy personality. The art was BEAUTIFUL, especially because of all the little details (such as plants, knick-knacks, etc.) add so much to the general picture.

The diversity was five star, and satisfied all my diversity wants:).
