I read this awesome book from cover to cover in just a few short hours due to it being so informative, interesting and entertaining. As a grown man who is a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, there was much information included in this work that, before reading, I was totally oblivious to. Every topic that you can think of regarding sexuality is thoroughly explained within these pages and I feel that whether or not you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, an ally, or otherwise, you can learn a whole lot from Juno Dawson. Believe me when I say that you will laugh out loud, dry tears from your eyes, and find this book nearly impossible to put down as long as you approach it with an open mind and a happy heart!… (més)

Probably the strangest book rec I've ever had. My mom's Bible study group read this and she is pushing it at everyone she knows. She's 85. I've read the reviews that find it problematic, but I'm giving it 5 stars because of the Bible study rec.

When they were kids, Niamh, Ciara, Leonie, Helena, and Elle all joined Her Majesty’s Royal Coven, the official witch’s coven of the UK. As young adults four of them fought a war against the men who wanted magic users to exert total control over normal people and Ciara, who chose the wrong side. Now, in middle age, they are just trying to live their lives as veterinarians, bureaucrats, or moms. They need to work together again when a teen comes along who is more powerful than any boy they’ve met before. It turns out that’s because Theo isn’t a boy, she’s a girl, with all the power that entails. She could bring about the destruction of the Coven, or she could drag them into the modern era.

A really thrilling, modern, pro-trans witchy story. The representation here is not perfect - it’s still a very binary and segregated system of magic. But at least this book, unlike most others of the genre, is trying to engage with the reality of trans experience, and modeling good acceptance by some of the other characters. I really enjoyed spending time with all the characters - even the bad ones! - and they all had really rich backstories and motivations. Much more relatable to me currently than teen main characters. I especially loved the Britishness of the book - even the spellings aren’t changed for a US audience (‘centre’ and ‘favourite’ abound) and I frequently had to google slang words (which I love to do). I had a great time reading it and I can’t wait to keep going in the series, where I hope it will start to transcend being such a direct response to transphobia in the magic book community.
