I personally loved this text, and it was exactly what I wanted to read. What I found most enjoyable was that I was educated on how autism can affect people, what being ableist looks/sounds like and how to fix that. It was great to be reading a rom-com type genre book that was also paired with information that correlates to and highlights issues that society struggles with today, including ablest, sexist, and misogynistic content. Though, something I didn’t quite enjoy was sometimes when sexist comments were made within a conversation in the novel, no characters stood up for sexism against women, which was sad to read as a sexist society should not be enforced. However, I would 100% recommend this book to anyone who is interested in reading a novel of a young rom-com type of true love story. This book is suitable for anyone who is from the age of around 15 and up. It was very good to read a novel that is the perspective of a real person with real battles and shows how they worked through their stressors as well as shine light on the dis-abled community to further educate the audience on the importance of treating dis-abled people fairly.
