Returning special guest Chris and Kaylia discuss the grossness of the added VP character, how the book dealt with race, the double standard of the default position (straight, white), the importance of Leah, “the tumbler,” and how this light fluffy book dealt with some big serious issues in such a delightful realistic way. Hooray for a joyful gay teen romance! Plus all the ways you can celebrate pride and be an ally to the LGBTQ+ community.
Also… Happy Pride!
Chris and his husband James made a Special Pride Video… Enjoy!
