Om författaren

Eliot Schrefer is a notable, best-selling young adult author. Schrefer attended Harvard University, where he graduated with High Honors in French and American literature. Schrefer's first novel, Glamorous Disasters, was a somewhat autobiographical tale of a young man living in Harlem and paying off visa mer college debt while tutoring Fifth-Avenue families. After writing another novel for adults, he turned to young adult fiction with The School for Dangerous Girls, about a boarding school for criminal young ladies. That book was selected as a "Best of the Teen Age" by the New York Public Library, and his next novel, The Deadly Sister, earned a starred review from School Library Journal. Schrefer's fifth novel Endangered, about a girl surviving wartime in Congo with an orphan bonobo ape, was a finalist for the National Book Award in Young People's Literature, one of NPR's "Best of 2012," and an editor's choice in The New York Times. ELIOT SCHREFER is also the author of Threatened, a finalist for the National Book Award in Young People's Literature in 2014, about a boy surviving in the jungles of Gabon alongside chimpanzees and Rise and Fall, the sixth book in the Spirit Animals Series. Schrefer's works have been translated into many languages including German, Russian, Polish, Taiwanese, Bulgarian, and Japanese. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Gr 7–10—From bisexual bonobos to intersex deer to lesbian albatrosses, Schrefer skillfully outlines the wide variety
of sexual diversity found in the animal kingdom and the functions of different animal sexual behaviors beyond basic
reproduction. A captivating scientific work but, more importantly, a necessary and affirming message of love and

So much scarier, more interesting, and more moving than I was expecting, and, though I thrive from queer romcom in space, that is not at ALL what this book is and I agree with other reviewers who feel like the marketing for this book (and even the publishing categorization as Young Adult*) was a bit off. This is pure existentialist science fiction, and, while Young Adult can certainly be dark, certainly be existential, the only thing here that makes this feel like a YA novel is the characters being inexplicably 17 years old (which felt odd for the plot, even given the half-hearted explanation for it, and off for the characters who felt more like kids in their early 20s) and some of the prose feeling a bit stilted in a way that had me feeling pretty "meh" for the first part of the book... until the twist came, and then it wrecked me, and now I'm left here at 4 in the morning, thinking about the nature of existence, of memory, of love ... good times. :)

* again, I'm hardly one to disparage Young Adult, considering how much of my academic career and personal time I dedicate to my love for it, but it is kind of a drag that this book wasn't marketed for what it actually is and might slip through the cracks and not into the hands of folks who might love it, but who overlooked it because they thought it was a more lighthearted YA romance. The unrighteous dismissal of YA strikes again, but, really, I do feel this title would have made more sense as a New Adult title, if nothing else.

Thank you to NetGalley for providing a free digital ARC of this book.

This was SO GOOD. I immediately recommended it to a bunch of my friends and family. So much information in this book was new to me -- it's almost embarrassing that I didn't know this stuff. That is until I remembered that non-heterosexual behavior in zoological research has been intentionally suppressed for hundreds of years.
