new Malinda lo
I was a fan of Malinda Lo's since reading her book A Line in the Dark in 2017. When Last Night at the Telegraph Club published last year, I was happy to see an author I loved getting so much attention, but truthfully I didn't like that book as much as I'm not a huge historical fiction fan. This is also historical fiction, but it's set about sixty years after which made a big difference for me. It felt a lot more current and gay marriage is first being legalized. I really liked reading Aria's story. Aria's summer gets messed up when something bad happens at school. She gets sent to be with her grandma instead where she meets a gardener who opens her eyes to the queer world where she discovers herself. I really liked this discovery and the revelation of her friends back home. The relationship in this book itself I didn't love as it was a lot of cheating.
