    I knew this was going to be an important and memorable story from the very first chapter This was my first time reading about an HIV positive character and their struggles so I was paying very close attention to everything that was being said about the virus and how it affected Simone s daily life I did feel overwhelmed in the beginning because the author does not wait long to explain Simone s situation to us and so it feels as though we are info dumped At the same time, I am really glad I kn I knew this was going to be an important and memorable story from the very first chapter This was my first time reading about an HIV positive character and their struggles so I was paying very close attention to everything that was being said about the virus and how it affected Simone s daily life I did feel overwhelmed in the beginning because the author does not wait long to explain Simone s situation to us and so it feels as though we are info dumped At the same time, I am really glad I knowabout HIV and the U U rule undetectable untransmittable today This book made me realize my own ignorance and corrected it It tells the story of Simone, an HIV positive girl who is faced with a dilemma tell the boy she is crushing on about her condition and risk being rejected and having the whole school find out about her virus or give in to her blackmailer who wants her to leave Miles alone I completely related to Simone because I think we all have a little something we don t want other people to know but not telling them can sometimes equal keeping them at a distance so it s not easy either way I also think the author did a magnificent job of making us feel sympathetic towards Simone without pitying her She s a strong girl and the fact that she is HIV positive does not make her any less real and able than someone else This is a really great debut novel Not perfect, seeing that it feels as though we are thrown into a story that started a while ago, but everyone in this story deserves getting to know, especially Simone and her family and friends Oh and Miles, of course Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin

    I wish I felt queer or straight and not like I m floating somewhere far away from both This is one for the Love, Simon fans And I m not saying this because that s what publishers use to promote their next great cute high school romance It s because it s 100% true Queer kids Check Cute romance Check True friendship Check Anonymous letters Drama club Check And that one dick that pressures you into coming out Check And after all these similarities, it still remains an original storyI wish I felt queer or straight and not like I m floating somewhere far away from both This is one for the Love, Simon fans And I m not saying this because that s what publishers use to promote their next great cute high school romance It s because it s 100% true Queer kids Check Cute romance Check True friendship Check Anonymous letters Drama club Check And that one dick that pressures you into coming out Check And after all these similarities, it still remains an original story about growing up and staying true to yourself One that is even deeper, braver, funnier, andheartfelt Full Disclosure touches on a lot of topics that I love seeing in YA novels It discusses racism and queerness but also talks openly about sex, sexual health, and masturbation I have only encountered this level of sex positivity in Jack of Hearts and it makes me happy to see it being represented in such an open minded light There are enough teenagers and adults out there who feel like they can t talk about their sex lives without feeling ashamed and embarrassed And sure, these things can be super awkward But I d rather have people learn about having a healthy attitude towards sex from reading books like this than watching porn and having unrealistic and often harmful expectations Further, the author also talks about asexuality and that it s okay not to like and want and think about sex, and that asexuality exists on a spectrum.And of course, one of the main themes in this book is the fact that Simone, the main character, is HIV positive The book is very informative in a way that many sex ed lessons fail to be It deconstructs the stigma that surrounds people who are positive and explains that partnerships, sex, having a family and children are just as possible for an HIV person than for everybody else.I also liked how the main character is a huge huge musical fan and often references musicals and their film adaptions without letting it overpower the main story I m not a fan of musicals myself mostly because I have enough obsessions already and I still enjoyed hearing about them without feeling like pop culture references about Dear Evan Hanson and Hamilton were being shoved down my throat And overall I genuinely liked Simone She is funny, she doesn t put up with anyone s bullshit, she s relatable I did, however, find it excruciating how she treated her best friends as soon as she had a boyfriend, especially because she saw no wrong in dumping her friends for a guy That s the worst behaviour And it got even worse before it got better But in the end, I saw where Simone was coming from and I was glad that she was insightful enough to see the hurt she d caused.And if all of that wasn t enough to convince you to read this book, maybe you should reconsider your life choices.Findof my books on Instagram

think that the best way for Simone to manage her sexuality is with abstinence But Simone would really like to have sex one day and she s really attracted to a boy at school Will he like her if she tells him about her illness, even if it s well managed As they get closer, this question featuresandprominently in her consciousness especially when she receives threatening messages in her locker from someone threatening to tell everyone that she has HIV if she doesn t ditch the boy she likes and go back to being alone.FULL DISCLOSURE is such a timely, amazing book It does for sexuality what THE HATE U GIVE did for racial violence It s a book that deep dives into an issue that a lot of people can t, or won t, talk about, and does so with depth, sympathy, and a great story The whole time I was reading this I felt really sad, because books like this weren t around when I was a teenager and I really wish they were, because I learnedfrom this one tiny novel than I did with a whole year s worth of Health classes.Rather than go into multiple paragraphs about everything I liked about this book, I m going to resort to my handy dandy method of lazy review writing the checklist.FULL DISCLOSURE is amazing because DIVERSITY EVERYWHERE Simone is black and bisexual Her best friends are Asian One of them is an asexual lesbian and the other is also bisexual Simone s fathers are black and Latino Simone s crush is black Simone s doctor is a hijabi Muslim This is the first book set in San Francisco that actually represents the city in all its diverse glory, and it s one of the things that I love so much about California It made me so happy to see a world reflecting the reality in which I live Sex positivity There s a lot of frank talk between Simone and her friends about sex The book opens with Simone s dads literally sitting with her as she meets with a gynecologist and talking about some of her contraceptive options as someone with HIV Sex is dealt with in a positive, open, healthy way I wish all sex talks were this positive, tbh It reminds me of a documentary I watched about Dutch sex ed classes and how they begin when kids are age 4 Teaching kids that their bodies are normal that sexuality of all kinds is normal, makes for a much better society I loved this Great relationships Even when the going gets rough, Simone s relationships are all goals She has a fight with her friends over a totally valid reason, and end up stronger than ever because of it She has a fight with her family over a totally valid reason, and they end up stronger than ever because of it She has some tough convos with her HIV support group, but they rally around her when she needs it It s unusual to see a book that manages to portray such closeness, and still manage to convey the usual tensions that any normal relationship is fraught with, without making things look toxic This book oozed love and support, and did so in a way that wasn t forced or fluffy at all Musical references galore I love musicals and it was great to see the heroine of this novel be so passionate about something A common complaint I see in YA is that the heroine has no hobbies or interests outside of her love interest, and that is so not the case here Simone is the creative director in her theater class and her passion for it shows every time she brings up the topic A great villain I honestly didn t see that twist coming and when the inevitable showdown happened, it was so realistic and so well handled that I wanted to cry This book could have been ruined so easily by a cheesy strawman argument, and it was not Normal teen things These teens have authentic voices and actually sound like teenagers You feel, when you re reading this book, that you re eavesdropping on actual teen conversations and not reading the thinly disguised morality play of a forty year old parent proselytizing to the next gen Simone often made me laugh with her zany sense of humor, and that lightened up some pretty serious and angsty moments in this book that definitely captured those infamous teenage lows In short, FULL DISCLOSURE is a really great book and I hope to see it in a lot of school libraries and maybe becoming a movie one day, just like THE HATE U GIVE did The AIDS scare of the 1980s caused a lot of misinformation about the virus to circulate, and that misinformation continues to this day because people don t want to talk about it Well, someone finally did, and if this book opens the door to those very serious conversations then that is a wonderful and marvelous thing Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review 4.5 to 5 stars

    Being a teenager is hard enough, dealing with peer pressure and boyfriends, but Simone is also coping with moving to a new school and having HIV She hasn t told her two new best friends yet She had to move school previously, she told a friend of her condition and then she told others Simone likes Miles but she is afraid to get too close to him when she gets mystery notes forcing her to reveal to Miles about being HIV positive she is desperate to find out who knows her secret.I really enjoyed Being a teenager is hard enough, dealing with peer pressure and boyfriends, but Simone is also coping with moving to a new school and having HIV She hasn t told her two new best friends yet She had to move school previously, she told a friend of her condition and then she told others Simone likes Miles but she is afraid to get too close to him when she gets mystery notes forcing her to reveal to Miles about being HIV positive she is desperate to find out who knows her secret.I really enjoyed this book Simone is a strong very likeable character, it s rare to read about a teenager being HIV positive and this was written in an honest and sensitive way.Thank you to Netgalley for my copy in exchange for a review
