A gripping, propulsive free verse novel that addresses the first year of college in a way I haven’t seen but absolutely loved: through exploration of self-love, overcoming trauma, trusting one’s instincts, questioning the socially-normalized paths, and pursuing passion. I hope adults and teens will read and discuss together. (It should be required reading for any college admissions advisors.) It also inspired me to do dance workouts online, so it has the potential for mental and physical benefits! Truly, this book could change your life.
