Review: Symptoms of Being Human

Symptoms of Being Human
Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is incredible. It’s the story of Riley, who is gender fluid. Per a therapist’s suggestion, Riley starts a blog about being gender fluid. It attracts a lot of attention, both good and bad.

This is more of a character driven novel than a story with a really intense plot, but that worked for me, as what I was interested in, throughout the story, was Riley.

It makes me happy that so many great LGBTQ+ YA titles have been released in 2016. Adults should read more YA, because the authors are bold and honest. They tackle topics that people need to understand better. YA novels actually make me feel better about the state of our future, as I can’t help hoping that kids that grow up reading these awesome books are likely to turn out more open-minded and less judgmental than our current adult population.
