    Heartwarming & Heartbreaking: the real deal

    "How to Make a Wish" is an honest and raw exploration between the relationships of an absent mother and daughter, and the romance between two girls dealing with similar traumas. Each character in the book is given so much care to be as multifaceted and complex as people really are. Maggie as an emotionally absent mother to her daughter is not downplayed or excused in her actions, yet you can't help but feel some sympathy for her growth and struggles to stay afloat. This book has a bi girl protagonist and biracial lesbian love interest, all written by a bi woman author, and it shows. Grace and Eva understand and speak openly and honestly about their romantic life and experiences that only continue to hit close to home for other women-loving-women readers. The two have wonderful chemistry, and the ways in which they grow together and work through their traumas aside one another is truly one of the most heartwarming things I've ever read. Also, speaking as a biracial reader, Blake does a surprisingly amazing job at depicting Eva's struggles being biracial, and the difficulties she and her mother had faced for being black women, in a way that feels genuine and from the heart. This book, along with "Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe" all have really raised the bar for contemporary LGBT YA coming of age and romance novels. It's well worth the read.
