About this deal

But this book, for me, really was a love letter to mental health awareness and how important it is to always put your mental health first.

None of these characters end the book feeling totally okay, but they ended this book just a little better, and there’s something rather valuable. So if you want to read my personal take on fandoms, the characters, music and relationships feel free to join me on this ride. Alice can usually be found staring aimlessly at computer screens, questioning the meaninglessness of existence, or doing anything and everything to avoid getting an office job. My point is that there was so much diversity in the book but it never felt like it was forced and it rather fits perfectly into a real life mold. Content and trigger warnings for talk of suicide and not wanting to be alive, depression, anxiety depiction, panic attacks, talk of past forced coming out/outing, talk of past loss of a loved one, alcohol abuse, abandonment, parental abandonment, and assault (one scene where a fan performs an act of violence against a band member).since late 2015 and I've found during that time that, not only is she a lovely human being, but her books just keep getting better and better! lol* I don’t even know how many people shipped my bestie and me during band times but since even one of our teachers shipped us. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). And how it is okay to say no, or take time for yourself, especially when you are uneasy about something. This book is told in alternating perspectives of Angel and Jimmy and we truly get to see the difference between what the fans see and what the band feels.

As the characters confront their personal flaws and the changing world around them, the readers get a sober look into how serious and fraught teenage lives can be with such high stakes.Alongside writing and drawing, Alice enjoys playing the piano semi-proficiently, Pokémon games, and purchasing too many Converse. I also have to admit that hearing the story for the first time I was surprised to feel a sense of annoyance. I even drafted a letter to my favorite member, Lance, but I guess even 10-year-old me was wise enough not to send it. Besides all of this, there are layers of plot that are explored sensitively but have a verisimilitude such as LGBT issues, transgenderism, religion, parental relations. I could sit here and type an essay about all of the different relationships in the book because I love them all but instead I'll focus on (for me anyway) the two most important: the quiet understanding between Angel and Jimmy, and Rowan, Jimmy and Lister.
