I am so done with myself it hurts...I-I wish I could be another person. A person who wouldn't disappoint family members and friends. Idk it all hurts and I try so hard. So I just don't be this way anymore. I don't understand why I was made this way. I just wish I was a girl. ~Aiden
“There was no way to tell their mothers the truth and make them believe it, that hearts that loved boys and girls were no more reckless or easily won than any other heart. They loved who they loved. They broke how they broke. And the way it happened depended less on what was under their lovers’ clothes and more on what was wrapped inside their spirits. What secret halls and trapdoors their sounds held, and what each one hid and guarded.”
- Wild Beauty
The #ourdaughtersdaughterssociety prompt for last week was LGBTQ in fiction so here we are. To be honest I’ve only read one book in this Rainbow and it’s the only one I can say for sure applies to this prompt. All five of the girls in Wild Beauty are bisexual and I think that was a wonderful choice for a book that talked about the strangeness and unexpectedness of love. Wild Beauty is probably one of my most favorite recent reads and I wholeheartedly recommend it to all of you.
I would also like so book recommendations so
