After reading this book, I walked around the store holding it to my chest for a good 20 minutes. These little creatures highlight the complexity of human emotions in such an original and personal way, making you feel valid in every little feeling you experience. Bonus - if you were also personally affected by Disney's Inside Out in a way that you didn't expect... this is the perfect book for you.

This is in my opinion one of Coelho's most captivating books. Came to me at the perfect moment, read it in one night and it's been close to my heart ever since. There are lines in here that will stay with you long after you have finished reading and characters that become close friends. A novel that begins in darkness but will leave you with so much light.

Published: Tor Nightfire - February 22nd, 2022

A horror book that centers around gender politics in a way that doesn't use trauma in the queer community as its only crutch! A wildly entertaining read that also makes you think about the world around us and the horror that exists today. Side note: if you are also angry with J.K. Rowling because.. duh... there is a moment in this book specifically for you. CW: transphobia, mental health, mentions of self harm, graphic violence

Published: Graywolf Press - December 1st, 2020

In terms of form this is one of the most unique memoirs that I've read. In terms of content, Machado addresses queer domestic abuse in all of its totality and nuance while holding the reader in the palm of her hand.
