#bbrc #a2z Every day, Albert finds a reason to stay inside where he's comfortable... until a pair of cardinals gives him a new way of seeing the world.

I loved this book. The illustrations are incredibly sweet and the story is poignant without being heavy-handed. This one is definitely going on my list of books to buy for my nieces.

Mehso-so

I'm very not okay after reading this. Scarringly sad and scary, and extremely triggering if you've experienced (non-exhaustive list) emotional abuse, medical abuse, rape, an eating disorder, and/or child sexual abuse (especially incest). The "so-so" is only because it's very white and cis. But at least it wasn't TERFy.

"I sit on my hands and watch myself in the mirrored walls, at this face that is so familiar yet which never feels as if it belongs to me. It is the property of the School, of the Zone, of my future Husband. This face is my worth, my value. This face is all that I have to offer and it isn‘t even mine."
