Juliet Milagros Palante is leaving the Bronx and headed to Juliet Takes PDFEPUBPortland Oregon She just came out to her family and isn’t sure if her mom will ever speak to her again But Juliet has a plan sort of one that’s going to hel. Exuberant and gorgeous debut novel about a young ueer Puerto Rican woman from the Bronx who spends a summer in Portland as an intern to a hippy white woman So much of this book is hilarious and charming I kept finding myself laughing out loud And the gorgeous moving turns of phrase made me catch my breath Really great story telling here So much to relate to as a ueer POC trying to make sense of the broader ueer and feminist communities I did want to see this book have a stronger edit At times there was so much ueer 101 didactic prose that slowed the novel down That said this novel comes highly highly recommended It is fucking outstanding

REVIEW Juliet Takes a Breath

Juliet Takes a BreathP her figure out this whole “Puerto Rican lesbian” thing She’s interning with the author of her favorite book Harlowe Brisbane the ultimate authority on feminism women’s bodies and other gay sounding stuff Will Juliet be able to fi. Man I hate to give this only 2 stars but I just can't honestly give it any It's too bad because the ideas really have potential the general plot outline sounds just like the coming out of age novels I love the affectionate parodies of white feminism were spot on the excerpts from Raging Flower were fucking brilliant Some of the writing on the sentence level was uite nice Ugh and I totally support the book's TPOC politics too I really wanted to love this THERE'S EVEN A SEXY LIBRARIAN WHO RIDES A MOTORCYCLEBut god damnit I just read an entire fucking novel of telling instead of showing And the characterization was so shallow; most of the characters never felt real to me Ultimately I was just really bored reading this I've read some of Rivera's journalism and essays on Autostraddle which I thought were great but fiction is a VERY different kind of writing and this entire novel needs a gigantic editorial makeover to transform it into that So much of it read like a ueer 101 textbook andor journal entries What a bummer
