Frances loves a podcast on youtube called “Universe City“, she is a huge fan and has a big place in the fandom. She creates fan art and posts them on Tumblr and Twitter, and one day the Creator message her to ask for a collaboration. She can’t believe it! All her hard work is paying off.
When she goes to a party with a friend she ends up helping Aled, her neighbour. They never really talked to each other before but his twin sister was her best friend. But she’s gone. She disappeared.
When Frances and Aled realise they have a lot in common, and their friendship is growing stronger it gets harder and harder for Frances to keep some secrets from Aled.. such as why his sister is gone.
I honestly loved this book so much, I can’t even describe how much I fell in love with the writing of this author, with the story she wrote and with her characters. The author worked really hard on the main story but also on the story of “Universe City” which takes an important place in the book.
You get caught up in the story, you don’t want to put the book down. You just want to find out what’s going to happen, and the secrets hidden.
Alice Oseman represents many themes in this book such as – the identity (with LGBTQ+ characters), friendship, diversity, school/study, family, acceptation, lies, secrets, …
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. I can’t believe it took me so long to pick it up from my TBR!
