This book is a powerful story of coming out, finding your identity and finally becoming you.
The author has written this story so emotively that love or hate the storyline, you can’t deny how real Airlie’s and Olivia’s journeys feel at times.
Whilst some tough subject matter is covered, if you’ve ever struggled with finding your identity, accepting yourself or dealing with an unrequited love/crush, this book will speak to you for sure.
Personally, i really enjoyed that the author doesn’t shy away from the issue that not everyone realises who they are straight away or readily accepts a drawn conclusion.
The struggles, fears and emotions of the main characters do justice to what i imagine is a somewhat familiar experience for many lgbtq people.
Whilst not always easy to read, Becoming You is a rollercoaster of emotion you can’t afford to miss out on.
