Avashia's writing is a gentle reminder of the beautiful nuance that exists within each person's identity, even as it can be fraught with complication. She writes with raw honesty about what it means to have grown up queer, Indian, Hindu, and a woman in the mountains of West Virginia. If you identify with her story, you will delight in the camaraderie of shared experience as well as her unique style. And if you don't identify, you will delight in her insight, wit, and defiant resilience.
