I found Juliet Takes A Breathe to be a really smart and engaging novel. Both the text and its characters are fierce and unapologetic. I learned a lot about the LGBTQ community and the politics of gender reading this book. It definitely made me think twice about my beliefs, and any book that does that is worth the read in my opinion. It's beautifully written. There's passages that are perfect. Juliet goes on both a literal and spiritual journey in this book to find herself and figure out her place in the world, and she does so with integrity and strength.
The characters and writing feel incredibly authentic and while there were some things that came up that didn't fully get fleshed out, on the whole, the book did a great job of starting and finishing conversations both amongst the characters and within Juliet's mind that are so important to have in today's society. I am so happy I was able to read this book, and I will definitely recommend it to people I know!
