      I devoured Sassafras Lowrey s debut novel, Roving Pack I pre ordered, so I got it before the official October release I tried to savor it, but it was not a small bites book, not a go slow on the first read experience The prose is achingly simple, stripped down and transparent , with an intensely compelling central character and a universe drawn in immense detail The kind of prose I love The kind of prose that makes me think I can do that writing doesn t have to be fancy and confusing, it can be [...]

      Let me say this first THIS IS AN IMPORTANT BOOK.OK, now I can tell you I loathed reading it It was thoroughly un enjoyable to read But you know what So was Grapes of Wrath Not every good book is a comfortable book I think this is exactly what Mattilda Bernstein Syca means when she reviews Roving Pack this way I m not sure that I ve ever seen a book that explores the intoxication and viciousness of peer pressure in queer lives with such candor Goddamn this book is brave I can t wait to see the ha [...]

      After I d read the last line of Roving Pack, I turned the page expectantly I wanted I double checked to make sure I hadn t flipped two pages instead of one I read the last paragraph again, then another time I sat with it It sat with me.I feel a lot of empathy for Click s situation Being genderqueer is similar to being trans , some of us even embrace trans as part of our identity We often find kinship and camaraderie among trans folks We can relate to feelings of gender dysphoria and the pain of [...]

      I can think of no higher praise for this book than this when it was done, I didn t want it to be Click is going to stay with me for a while Powerful novel about what gender fluidity looks and feels like, something that is sorely lacking in most of the other work about trans and genderqueer youth Get this book immediately HIGHLY recommended.

    5. Heidi says:

      Roving Pack is sweet and beautiful and bloody and visceral I wanted it to go on so much longer I wanted because I wanted to see Click have that happy ending ze deserved But if Roving Pack teaches us nothing else it s that not all of us have happy endings We just have to do the best we can with the story beforehand This is a book about growth and journey and self understanding and acceptance It s about chosen family and the friends we d kill and die for And it s about what happens when we realiz [...]

      Incomplete list of trigger warnings abuse, adultery, child abuse, daddy kink, domestic abuse, drug abuse, homophobia, non negotiated undernegotiated BDSM and other kink, nonbinaryphobia, sex between minors and adults, stalking, transphobia Near the beginning there seems to be a mention of incestuous attraction, but the characters are not blood related and were not raised together the main character was adopted as a brother by a experienced queer person when ze came out, and this is the person z [...]

      I don t know whether it s a mark of a good or bad book when it finishes and you blink at the page and go you re just going to stop it there but I suppose it s a sign that it s a not a book that you can just take or leave You either love it or hate it like Marmite I can t decide which camp I fall into.I started reading this book in a coffee shop and then promptly didn t move for an hour and a half apart from to drink my tea Then I realised the stink eyes I was getting from the staff for taking up [...]

    8. Gabrielle Harbowy says:

      Click may be what the mainstream self helpers call transgendered, but in reality, Click is an outcast s outcast, quickly learning that even those who live outside the box, invent their own pronouns, and reject society s gender rules, still make and enforce gender rules of their own Click, who is happy identifying as a boy without getting on hormones and transitioning, doesn t fit in their boxes, either The pressure to follow the approved, expected path is immense, even though Click knows that go [...]

      This book is wonderfully raw, real and necessary At first I was taken aback by the format by which it s written but the deeper I delve into it the I realized how important even that part of it was In this day, with blogs and social media so prevalent in our daily lives, the format of a blog makes it easy and interesting to read It s as if you re reading someone s personal thoughts and feelings It makes it so real I can t say enough about this book, really.

    10. Jill Adams says:

      Probably 2 1 2 stars A raw, challenging read due to rough content and sentence structures I pushed myself to finish the book and am glad I did I know I will keep some things with me from the text, especially about gender queer teens and the the overall spectrum of gender This seemed like an adult read for me there is some domination submissive behaviors included too , but it all depends on the kid.

    11. Hella says:

      Wow, what a wild ride I am just amazed how well Click is keeping hir life together considering all the crap that keeps happening.I would love to have a book club meeting at UUCA about this book, because I would definitely like to discuss it with others

    12. Twamos says:
