  • Everyone should get to know Juliet

    Juliet Takes a Breath is a coming of age story about a Latina lesbian from the Bronx who travels to Portland for the summer to intern with a feminist writer who she admires and idolizes. Juliet's exuberant voice engages the reader immediately, and we watch her navigate coming out as a lesbian, discovering the LGBTQ community, family, relationships, feminism, and issues of race and privilege. It is a character and issue driven book rather than being heavy on plot. I'm worried this book will be pigeonholed as an LGBTQ and/or Latin book (which it is, of course), and readers who don't belong to these groups won't pick it up. Fundamentally, this book is very human and explores big issues like learning who you are, the consequences of making assumptions about others, respect for others and yourself, and establishing boundaries. We can all take something away from this book whether we are Juliet's age or much older.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Made me think and grow as a person

    A book hasn't caused me to sit and think and reevaluate myself like this one has since I was in university. I WAS Juliet, questioning everything and learning aout myself. Every queer POC and white "ally" needs to read this book as it forces the reader to see and question "white feminism". Love it, didn't want it to end, would give it 10 stars if I could.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Honest

    This book was so honest and well written. I'd recommend it to anyone whose just starting to find their way in the queer community. Juliet's embarrassment, curiosity, and growth captures what it feels like to suddenly be a part of a such big diverse community and not know what it all means and where you fit inside of it all.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • What a great read!

    Highly recommend! This is a joyful stand for queer/fem POC but it should be read by all! Wonderful storytelling and educates on some really important perspectives.
