Unexpected and so good Different in tone than much romance I'm used to Not so tidy That really worked for me The writing had so much personality spare but cutting deep I personally liked that it's so choppy because the details that were given evoked mood so intensely without ever describing specific emotions The story relied almost wholly on dialogue actions and setting descriptions to convey emotions and it was so effective It worked especially well given that the characters are young raw emotionally immature and haven't yet gained the skills to communicate with each other openly state their needs ask for support I recognize them recognize myself at that ageFor me the story being set at this point in the characters' life also made things painful not in a bad way but just because I feel so much for them and everything is so much Jalen is depressed hates their two jobs and the necessity of working them plus the racism and transphobia they experience there uninspired by their university program and P is similarly scared of the future struggling in an unhealthy relationship with a transphobic parent and feeling lost This is all roiling in the background of the sweet sexy adorable relationship Jalen and P develop and it did make me super anxious I was so excited for them liking each other so much and simultaneously terrified of them spending so much time together all of a sudden and not drawing on established coping mechanisms that I could seeBut that makes the story all the real None of those background issues gets truly addressed or resolved during the course of the novella nor do I think they should be I appreciate the story's sense that these characters are doing their best coping in sometimes unhealthy ways caring for each other and that it's okay to be messy uncertain and in pain There is an explicit theme of not judging other people's efforts and struggles here The ending had an okay for right now at this very moment sense of joy of choosing to take pleasure in each other even while sort of floating on a life raft in uncertain choppy seasOther elements that played out differently than the usual tropes Jalen thinks P is smoking hot right off the bat but there's hardly any 'oh no he couldn't possibly like me back' pining They just make the first move with P at the first opportunity when they have some privacy I'm all for pining but it was a nice change of pace for one character's hotness not to be always contrasted with another's low self confidence or self perceived lack of desirability nobody was really very driven I feel like oftentimes in romance people have big study or career goals involved in the plot and while I'm all for personal development I honestly found it kind of refreshing for Jalen to be like meh school once again related to the above but self assured hot guy P isn't at all aloof and constantly expresses desire emotional support and interest in the point of view characterLastly the dialogue was phenomenal And I loved the seamless ways that being trans and an amputee was woven in for both of the characters the humor around it how present it was while also not being made an issue of These two punks felt so realReadalikes Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl by Andrea Lawlor and Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Riveraalso center young reckless messy ueers though the former is even less upbeat and the latter much so and they both involve politics than Long Macchiatos does
