Juliet Milagros Palante is leaving the Bronx and headed to Portland, Oregon. She just came out to her family and isn't sure if her mom will ever speak to her again. But Juliet has a plan, sort of, one that's going to help her figure out this whole "Puerto Rican lesbian" thing. She's interning with the author of her favorite book: Harlowe Brisbane, the ultimate authority on feminism, women's bodies, and other gay-sounding stuff. Will Juliet be able to figure out her life over the course of one magical summer? Is that even possible? Or is she running away from all the problems that seem too big to handle? With more questions than answers, Juliet takes on Portland, Harlowe, and most importantly, herself.… (lisätietoja)

“Feminism. I’m new to it. The word still sounds weird and wrong. Too white, too structured, too foreign: something I can’t claim. I wish there was another word for it. Maybe I need to make one up.”

Gabby Rivera’s debut YA novel JULIET TAKES A BREATH may have been published five years ago, but its story still feels just as fresh and important as it did in 2016. A coming-of-age novel following 19-year-old Juliet Palante as she discovers what it means to be unapologetically herself, JULIET TAKES A BREATH tackles themes of identity, community, and intersectionality and challenges the often harmful narratives embedded in white feminism.

Juliet is a Puerto Rican lesbian from the Bronx who lands a summer internship in Portland, Oregon with Harlowe Brisbane — the white, queer author of the feminist manifesto “Raging Flower.” After coming out to her family crashes and burns, Juliet boards the plane to Portland convinced that a summer with her literary hero will change her world for the better.

And so Juliet finds herself living in Harlowe’s attic, researching names scribbled on scraps of paper for her next book, and trying to navigate queer communities unlike anything she’s ever experienced before. As if this weren’t already a totally different vibe than the one she’d imagined, her mother won’t accept that her sexuality isn’t “just a phase,” her girlfriend won’t return any of her phone calls, and she can’t stop thinking about the cute librarian and her motorcycle.

I absolutely fell in love with Juliet and appreciated watching her learn and grow into herself over the course of Rivera’s novel. JULIET TAKES A BREATH is an important read and truly a breath of fresh air.

I enjoyed this as a graphic novel, where I do not think I would have enjoyed it as a novel. I loved the colors the artists used. It kept my attention when I thought the story was slow. Overall it was the artwork that drew me to the story instead of the story itself. ( )

As a queer Black woman from Brooklyn, this story was very touching and heartfelt, and I can recognize myself in the character of Juliet when I was a teenager and in my 20s. I knew these characters, and yet I was still surprised by the complexity of them. The characters were so dimensional, and the writing was witty, poignant, and soulful. I experienced the gambet of emotions while listening and am still thinking about sections of the story. I felt connected to all the characters and was immersed in the world immediately. I am thrilled I chose to listen to the Audible version read by the author, Gabby Rivera, because their delivery was beautiful and impactful. I highly recommend this story. ( )

Juliet has just scored a summer internship across the country with the author of the most inspirational book she has ever read. It means leaving behind her family in the Bronx, as well as her girlfriend Lainie. In Portland, Juliet is warmly embraced by her idol Harlowe Brisbane and Harlowe's circle, and she feels like she has truly found her people.

This book was raw, honest, amusing and quite different from what I was expecting. I enjoyed trying to nail down the setting with clues given - with references to Lycos and a Discman I knew it was at least a decade into the past - until a single enormous reference revealed the precise year. Juliet's experiences with her (fallen?) idol are a reminder that even well-meaning folks still take missteps, and that there will always be opportunities to learn, acknowledge mistakes and do better.

You know that feeling you get when something makes your insides glow? When you feel empty and cleansed and complete with the universe all at once? Like you could walk out the front door and the world will answer your call of joy and manifest everything that you need? It may sound trite, but as soon as I started reading this book that's what I got - and boy did I need it. 2019 was a challenging year on so many levels and I felt like I was struggling to even feel connected to anything, but towards the end of the year some of my hope started to come back. I'll confess that 2020 hasn't magically fixed things (the universe doesn't quite work that way), but reading this book brought me so much joy that I hope I can take that feeling and keep manifesting it into positivity throughout. Rivera had me hooked from the outset with her spunky protagonist Juliet Palantes, an aspiring writer, budding feminist, and just out of the closet lesbian. Juliet is young and adventurous, so even though she is terrified on being rejected by her family she comes out before travelling across the country to Oregon to work a summer internship with hotshot feminist writer Harlowe Brisbane. The story starts out like it's going to be just a fun summer of Juliet being immersed in West Coast lesbian culture, but Rivera explores so many deeper themes without sacrificing story that I couldn't help but be deeply impressed. I'm no expert on the LGBTQ2 , POC, or even the feminist culture, but I think that the biggest takeaway from the book (which does anything but preach, even while it clearly teaches) is that we have to keep questioning and that we hvae to keep learning. We might not always have the continuing personal drive to start asking the qiestions, but I definitely came out of this book feeling like I was ready to start again. Start asking, start doing, and most of all start being again. I sincerely hope that Rivera continues writing, because damn girl the world needs more of you! ( )
