Did you know? Every time you make an Amazon purchase from one of my links, you’re supporting this site.

A grieving teen, a new town, and an unexpected love.

Love is LoveLove is Love, by Mette Bach is a quick read with a powerful message. If you’re hankering for a YA book with a vibrant cast of characters in a Canadian setting, this is the novel for you.

The main character, Emmy, feels out of place in Winnipeg. Her dad is dead, she’s stuck in her mom’s boyfriend’s house, and the school hunk completely ignores Emmy despite their recent sexual encounter together. Fed up, she packs her bags and moves to her uncle’s house in Vancouver.

And that’s where she meets Jude.

Emmy is never sure where she stands with Jude, and can’t believe that such a confident, charismatic guy might actually be interested in her. Both her mother back in Winnipeg and Paige warn her away from Jude, saying that he will just use her and she will get hurt. But it’s not until she almost falls again into the trap of casual sex to boost her self-esteem that Emmy realizes it’s worth it to put your true self out there for real love.

~Excerpt from official Amazon blurb

Though Emmy’s cousin, Paige, disrespectfully calls Jude by the wrong pronoun and brings up his deadname, Emmy sees him for who he truly is.

Content warning note: If you are sensitive to or triggered by pronoun misuse, deadnaming, transphobia, ableist language in regards to mental illness and/or eating disorders, this may not be the book for you.
