Review: None Of The Above by I. W. Gregorio

This is undoubtedly one of the best books I’ve read this year. Although ‘None of the Above’ isn’t an own voices intersex story, Gregorio is a medical professional who has dealt with intersex patients and the amount of research and sensitivity reading that has gone into this book shows in the way it’s informative, sensitive and, most importantly, a delight to read.

Genre: 
Contemporary
Published by: Simon and Schuster
Pages: 656
Format: Paperback
Rating: ★.5

I picked this book up after seeing it on a list of YA LGBTQ+ books over at Maximum Pop Books. I thought you can never read too many LGBTQ+ books, so I’ve made it my mission to try and read as many on this list as physically possible. Another selling point with this book was the note that it was ‘a novel in lists’. Now, that’s an interesting story-telling method. So, as a list-lover, and an aspiring LGBTQYA reader, I had high hopes for this one. But, you know what they say about high hopes. You’re bound to be disappointed.

Genre: Contemporary, LGBTQ
Published by: Electric Monkey (Egmont)

Format: Paperback
Rating: ★★★

This book was in my sixth form’s library, and I just never got round to reading it while I was there, which I obviously regretted because as soon as I spotted it in my local library I was checking it out without a second thought. All I knew about it was that it’s pretty much a staple in any list about LGBTQ YA and that was reason enough for me to want to read it. I’ve read a lot of David Levithan so far, and have found that I’ve enjoyed his co-written works with Rachel Cohn more than his own stuff, but I thought I’d see how it went.
