I'm not sure how to review this book I thought that it was a good read but at times it seemed kind of over the top You don't hear many 17 year olds living on their own and it seemed like Alvie was on her own since she was 15 with a full time job and her own apartment I'm way older than her have a full time job but still can't live in my own apartment She was doing pretty good for herself and then the last 100 pages everything seemed to full apart for Alvie but then things got good again Stanley ooohhh Stanley Stanley was perfect maybe too perfect even with his disablity I loved him and I loved how he accepted who Alvie was though Books like this just break my heart but in a good way if that even makes sense

Obviously I’m not what most people Heart Joins PDF #10003 would describe as happy But that has nothing to do with anything Happiness is not a priority Survival isAlvie Fitz doesn’t fit in and she doesn’t care She’s spent years swallowing meds and bad advice from doctors and social workers Adjust adapt Pretend to be normal It sounds so easyIf she can make it to her eighteenth birthday without any major mishaps s. In this YA novel Alvie a girl with autism who works at a zoo and wishes to be emancipated meets and falls for Stanley a guy with a musculoskeletal disorder who’s in college and has recently suffered a loss I really like the diversity represented in this one Alvie and Stanley’s romance was sweet There were places I wished the book moved faster The book did a good job of presenting the viewpoint of characters with two differences but also contained microaggression towards different abled people with other conditions that felt stigmatizing And maybe the problem is just that the author isn’t writing from an #ownvoices perspective and doesn’t get that when you’re differently abled those words are really really hurtful There were lines that contained microaggression towards the Deaf community we saw the tired old stigmatizing trope of “everyone with schizophrenia is violent” and I really hated this oneI shouldn’t have to tell them Other people aren’t expected to disclose personal medical information in an interview Would someone say ‘Oh before you hire me I should mention I have a terrible case of hemorrhoids’”“It’s not like that This isn’t something you need to be embarrassed about” On the one hand I appreciate what the author was trying to do The point was the main character shouldn’t be embarrassed about her Asperger’s But why take a cheap shot at another stigmatized medical condition in the process Maybe it's just supposed to play as a poop joke but in a book about how medical conditions and differences are stigmatized The author's writing just comes across as sweetly clueless to what it's really like to have a disability Or that she's even aware things connected to the butt like anal and colorectal cancer don't get talked about because of stigma And how exactly is that joke supposed to play to the son of my former co worker who because of a birth defect had to get a colostomy bag when he was 5 months old The whole point of this book was two characters who were born different accepting and loving themselves and each other as is I really wished that line have been “It’s not like that And you know what even if you did have a terrible case of hemorrhoids it wouldn’t be anything to be embarrassed about”In short this book tried to deliver a good message and in many places succeeded but would have benefited from sensitivity readers to clean up a few yikes moments 35 starsPlease excuse typosname misspellings Entered on screen reader

I just finished I'm shaky I will not read any reviews or anything about the author until I'm done writing this What day is it Friday I guess I work tonight I'm in a bathrobe kind of ratty and Birkenstocks because somehow it feels comfortable to have them on than to be in bare feet these days I turned the last page of the book closed it wiped my eyes hugged it to my chest and smiled gently and here I amI really don't know what any of you want to read and I sit here thinking about how these reviews are my outlet my way of trying to make sense of all my feelings over a book I have no objectivity I really don't If you thought maybe I had a bit think again I'm INFP That either means something to you or it doesn't In short it's about feelings for me the feelings I was at a funeral this week and it was one about a big love story I thought about the finite nature of our existence And then right book right time A very long time ago when I was fifteen someone gave me Watership Down and I read it It was hardcover edition and had just been published It was a huge gift to me at the time the first hardcover book I'd ever owned This author I don't know one thing about this author not a thing obviously was very affected by Watership Down It's interesting to me how books get the YA rating I wonder who reads this book and I wonder how many adults will miss it because of the YA categorizing What's the book about right It's about opening up or shutting down It's about joy and pain It's about the myth of normalcy and the incredible drive and terror to be seen for our real selves naked not just literally but figuratively I think about the word love and how when I was young it was not used all the time People did not love everything Fries movies sweaters cars Well maybe they did love them but it was just not a word that was overused And now everyone loves everything or sometimes it seems like that and it bothers me Sometimes I think about love being a verb and to say it we need to practice it to live it It's easy to say Love love love love love love See But to practice it not just on days it's easy but on the days when it's not easy when it's difficult when storm clouds threaten and we're just tired and worn down When My Heart Joins the Thousand reminded me of what love in it's purest form means I am so very grateful to have read this book I needed these pages right now than words can say but I've tried to say itBe good to each otherPamFishgirl
