YA in its pure form

The book itself was a mix of Mexican mythology and maybe something that could carry a resemblance to the Hunger Games. To be fair, I'm not trans so I can't speak on her behalf, but I have to say that one of the most empathetic scenes in the whole story was when one of the characters who was trans helped another trans character who was feeling insecure. It really hit home how we are all connected and share the same journey, even when we feel alone in the real world where it feels like no one understands us.

On the other hand, the book was not without its flaws. Everything that is typical and clear for YA was there, which you can say is inevitable. For example, the constant talk about other people's physical attractiveness, the feelings of attraction expressed through the character's chest or stomach, the one-dimensional character sketches and the rambling.
