For fans of Love, Simon and I Wish You All the Best, a funny, honest, messy, completely relatable story of a girl who realizes that love can be found in many ways that don't involve sex or romance.

From the marvelous author of Heartstopper comes an exceptional YA novel about discovering that it's okay if you don't have sexual or romantic feelings for anyone . . . since there are plenty of other ways to find love and connection.

This is the funny, honest, messy, completely relatable story of Georgia, who doesn't understand why she can't crush and kiss and make out like her friends do. She's surrounded by the narrative that dating + sex = love. It's not until she gets to college that she discovers the A range of the LGBTQIA+ spectrum coming to understand herself as asexual/aromantic. Disrupting the narrative that she's been told since birth isn't easy there are many mistakes along the way to inviting people into a newly found articulation of an always-known part of your identity. But Georgia's determined to get her life right, with the help of (and despite the major drama of) her friends.

Alice Oseman has a real good sense on dialogue. That’s what made this book really enjoyable for me. Each voice has their own sense of personality for all the characters. The themes that were explored on love were clear and digestible. I believe a lot of young people will still enjoy this story for years to come.

The reason why I didn’t rate this higher was I didn’t always have a good sense of the setting and environment that we were in. Again, this book is very dialogue heavy which was strong but there was a sense that I didn’t know always where the characters were in space. There was good examples of this displayed a certain points of the book like when they performed “Your Song” to Pip while on the boat down the river. I could really imagine the scene in mind. I just wished there were more moments like that. Overall, it’s an easy read that folks who are transitioning to college and trying figure themselves out (sexuality, gender, etc.) could very much relate to. Also, the audiobook was really nice to listen to alongside the book. ( )

Reading the description of this novel, which won YA (Young Adult) Book Prize in 2021, it seemed a perfect fit for prompts in two (of four) reading challenges I have undertaken this year: a book with a character on the ace spectrum (PopSugar Reading Challenge) and a book that features a loving LGBTQIA relationship (Around the Year in 52 Challenge). It was a perfect fit. And I learned a lot about the many shades of sexuality that a younger generation is free to discuss and learn about that would never have been discussed in the allegedly free-wheeling 70s when I was a young adult at “uni”, like the five friends who form the core group of characters in this novel. Pansexuals, gay asexuals, aromantic-asexuals (aro-ace). How wonderful that people who once felt so marginalized and had to hide are able to find others like themselves and to learn to thrive on other loving relationships that don’t involve sex or even romance. The characters were interesting – and each had his or her own verbal tics and quirks that made them come to life: Pip (Felipa), Georgia, and Jason, who had been friends in Kent before university; Rooney, Georgia’s roommate; and Sunil, Georgia’s college “parent” (mentor) – and the storyline was interesting, a coming-of-age novel that explores once hidden and taboo subjects that marginalized people who did not fit a specific societal expectation likely repressed when I was younger because they had no name for it. The exploration of those many feelings and fears was enlightening and credibly rendered through the characters.

Alice Oseman is a YA author and illustrator, so I get that I was not the intended audience, and the things that may have detracted from the overall quality in my view may just be artifacts of a formal education in a different generation. I found the use of the word “me” as subject in the mouths of these university students somewhat off-putting, and it was used by several of these characters. My initial reaction was that students smart enough to get into a university in the UK (where this novel is set) would have been through the rigors of grammar and needed to be proficient in it. Or maybe that’s the way university students speak to each other these days. I would give it three-plus stars, but not a four, bearing in mind that some of the tempering of the rating is because of that grammar issue that, for me, affected the credibility of the characters.

YA fans looking for an excellent portrayal of an ace character will find everything they need in Georgia Warr. Readers are along for the ride as Georgia is just beginning to understand her desire for romance and love without sex as she also navigates the end of high school and the start of college. ( )

Ci sono un paio di elementi che non mi sono piaciuti in questo romanzo: il primo riguarda il modo in cui è stato descritto il personaggio di Rooney, che purtroppo incarna lo stereotipo della persona bi/pansessuale promiscua e della donna che fa solo molto sesso per riempire il famigerato vuoto interiore. Capisco che voleva essere un personaggio funzionale a mostrare che le relazioni sessuali non sono necessariamente le migliori e le più sane (ma va’?), ma non ho apprezzato, sebbene Rooney abbia una sua tridimesionalità e il suo ruolo non si esaurisca a quello stereotipo. È una parte che poteva essere scritta decisamente meglio.

L’altro elemento riguarda la percezione che la storia di Georgia sia un po’ anacronistica. Ho trovato strano che una ragazza di oggi con un’amica lesbica e vicina alle tematiche dell’universo queer non sia mai inciampata nella definizione di asessualità: riesco a dare un senso a questa cosa solo pensando che Oseman (che è nata nel 1994 ed è asessuale e aromantica) abbia attinto a piene mani dalla sua esperienza personale per costruire il percorso di Georgia e che quindi si rifaccia a un mondo nel quale l’asessualità è un orientamento pressoché sconosciuto.

E non me la sento di essere troppo cattiva su questo perché mi è sembrato un libro molto personale: non mi permetto di dire che sia autobiografico, ma mi ha dato l’impressione di contenere molti dei pensieri che sono passati dalla testa di Oseman mentre cercava di capire da chi (non) fosse attratta. Infatti, l’ho trovato un ottimo romanzo per farsi un’idea di cosa voglia dire crescere senza sapere che l’asessualità e l’aromanticismo esistano, finendo per fare un sacco di cose stupide e per ferire anche un sacco di persone.

So che alcune persone si sono lamentate anche della rappresentazione delle persone razzializzate, ma io, da brava bianca, non ho notato niente del genere – ma ve lo segnalo comunque. Banalmente, penso che Sunil, lǝ ragazzǝ indianǝ che per primǝ spiega cosa sia l’asessualità a Georgia, sia lì per omaggiare il fatto che la comunità asessuale indiana sia molto vivace. Ma è più che possibile che mi sia sfuggito qualche dettaglio importante.

In definitiva, è stata una lettura abbastanza positiva, sono contenta che questo romanzo sia arrivato in Italia: speriamo che sia il primo di tanti, visto che in lingua inglese ormai ce ne sono diversi. ( )

There were literally three separate couples sitting around the fire making out, like some sort of organised kissing orgy, and half of me was like, ew, and the other half was like, Wow, I sure do wish that was me.
