Bianca Torre Is Afraid of Everything by Justine Pucella Winans
I loved every page of this compelling, funny, suspenseful book. Imagine “Rear Window” meets a queer, teen version of “The Lovebirds.” Bianca is endearingly awkward and charmingly honest as a narrator and character, and the good people who enter and stay in Bianca’s orbit are absolute delights. Bianca deals with an overwhelming number of fears (listed through #70 in the back of the book and referenced throughout), their gender identity and sexuality, a sister and mother who are both very into THEATRE, and witnessing a neighbor’s murder that the police think is a suicide… So there’s a lot going on, but it’s all handled deftly, with humor and heart.
