Queer Rep Summary: No canon queer rep as of when I stopped reading.

Did not finish, 14% in. Maybe I’ll try this again someday, but the mood whiplash from the very early, very graphic death which kicks off the plot was too much for me. The plot shocked me and then meandered for a while, I’m sure it has a destination but I’m not ready right now for the journey.

CW for fatphobia, homophobia, bullying, toxic relationship, adult/child relationships, drug use, confinement, grief, mental illness, eating disorder, dysmorphia, blood, self harm, suicidal thoughts, suicide, child death, death.

A red book dripping with blood atop a garland with flowers and two black feathers.
