I wanted to read the novel before the recently released graphic novel adaptation and I’m glad that I did; although Celia Moscote’s vibrant artwork shines on its own, I don’t think I would have appreciated Juliet’s story as deeply without having read Rivera’s original work. Some of the novel’s plot points were changed drastically or omitted entirely from the graphic novel version, with one character being almost completely reimagined. I imagine this was to more easily translate the story from Juliet’s internal dialogue to the more visual interpretation, but it felt lacking in some of the character-defining conflict of the original. That being said, I loved Moscote’s interpretation of the more atmospheric sections of the story — in particular, her rendering of Juliet’s blossoming romance with Kira was really lovely. ( )

*reviewed from uncorrected egalley ~ netgalley*

teen/adult graphic fiction (queer, Black, Puerto-Rican American from the Bronx accepts an internship with prominent "white lady feminist" in Portland)

I didn't know anything about the story when I picked this up (was just happy to see a curvy queer POC featured prominently on the cover), so I was a bit surprised by the *extra*-ness of the feminism--if the title of Harlowe's book makes you more than a little uncomfortable, it is very possible you will find some of the content "offensive." But I think that shaking people up a little is a good thing, and the effect is refreshingly proud and positive, even humorous.

while this book doesn't teach any specifics about LGBTQAI topics (or intersectionality/race issues), it does mention concepts of non-binary gender, poly love, etc., and helpfully provides some vocabulary for readers to follow up on, whether they are queer/questioning or hoping to become a better-informed ally.

I LOVED the novel, and when I found out it was made into a graphic novel, I immediately bought it.

The artwork was amazing, and I enjoyed the condensed version of the story, impressed with the selection of which storylines would be included.

Because I read the book and knew the full story, I felt like this graphic was a supplementary book to the main novel. I liked that all the characters looked like what I had imagined in my head.

This graphic novel packs a punch, but it isn't as impactful as the novel. I would recommend reading the novel before the graphic.

It's that constant question of 'should you watch the movie/tv show before reading the book?'

Read the book first! ( )

(Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through Netgalley. Trigger warning for depictions of racism and homophobia.)

On a whim, nineteen-year-old Juliet Milagros Palante penned a fan letter to her favorite feminist author, "pussy lady" Harlowe Brisbane ... and scored a college internship out of the deal! Now she's heading across the country, leaving the familiarity of her family and the Bronx behind for a summer in Portland. As if that's not stressful enough, Juliet chooses the evening before her departure to "let out her lesbionic truths" (in the words of her younger brother, Melvin, who is as wise as he is adorable) and come out to her family.


Juliet started reading Harlowe's book, RAGING FLOWER: EMPOWERING YOUR PUSSY BY EMPOWERING YOUR MIND, just to "make people feel uncomfortable on the subway." Even though she always thought feminism was for white ladies, this "magical labia manifesto" has got her rethinking things: sisterhood, the patriarchy, and her relationships. Can Juliet's family accept her for who she truly is? Can she and girlfriend Lainie make the long-distance thing work? And can a coveted job in Portland help Juliet become more confident and at home in her own skin?


Harlowe is about what Juliet expected ... until she isn't. She's kind and welcoming, but interning for someone as erratic as Harlowe proves a challenge. And then things go absolutely sideways when, at a reading, Harlowe throws Juliet under the bus and proves herself a truly crappy ally.

Thankfully, Juliet's not alone: she's got two awesome friends/mentors in the form of Max and Zaira; there's a cute librarian named Kira who likes to bake her cookies; and her cousin Ava is just dying for Juliet to visit Miami now that she's out, so they can hit the clubs together. (Ava is bisexual, and the moment when she learns that her mom is too is one of my favorites in a book packed with memorable scenes.)


This is a graphic novel adaptation of Gabby Rivera's 2016 novel, which has been on my TBR list forever (so many books! curse you, netgalley!), but just got bumped up a few spots. Since I haven't read it, I can't very well compare the two, but the graphic novel is amazing. The art is cute and fun and full of color; everyone is adorable, maybe with the occasional exception of Harlowe and Lainie, and I'm totally fine with that because they both kind of suck. The story is entertaining and engaging, even if you have a vague idea of the white lady train wreck that lies ahead. Juliet is a really great character, and I especially loved the scenes with her family, particularly younger brother Melvin and cousin Ava.


In summary: This book is super-gay and my heart just swells with it. ( )
