While this did remind me of Real Women Have Curves (without the corny bits) and...I dunno...a thing I'll discuss in a spoiler that I am not sure is a thing, I love Gabi so dang much. The tone felt so authentic, like I was reading my own journal from senior year of high school, and even though some of her problems stemmed from grappling with a Mexican cultural heritage, her struggles are so universal to so many women reaching adulthood. I wish I had read books like this--books that delve way into consent, rape culture, body positivity, and women's hormones and urges that are OK--throughout my teens and 20s. At the very least, I would have felt less alone and powerless. At best, I might not have put up with some awful situations I went through. Also, she loves Steinbeck, so yeah.

The situation I'm still mulling over is when Gabi beats up German for raping Cindy. On the one hand, the way that entire ordeal went--everything from how Cindy finally had the courage to say something even to her closest friends, how Gabi processed it, how the school dealt with it, how Cindy reacted to Gabi's actions--was absolutely believable and, in many ways, pretty positive in terms of setting an example for how girls in real life might handle a similar situation. I don't know what it would have been like to experience this as a teen, but as an adult, having unfortunately been in Cindy's shoes, part of me *wishes* some of my best girlfriends would have been so supportive, and part of me is so mad that German still gets off scot-free. Yes, it's totally real life--of course Cindy has every right to her feelings, and yeah, boys and men almost never face any real consequences for their actions--but I can't wait for the day when women don't have to carry the burden of shame and physical and emotional scars for being victims of rape...in novels and in the real world.

This is a great feminist primer. It reads like every teenage girl's diary. I loved it. ( )

Oh, man, that was so achingly good. I look forward to reading more of Quintero's work in the future. ( )

This is an ingenious little book. It starts out incredibly relatable and easy to read, but as the reader grows with Gabi, more important ideas take shape. I love the development she has and I especially love the innocently critical lens through which she views life. ( )

This uplifting, affirming book told in diary format is a sneak peek into Gabi Hernandez' senior year in high school. Gabi has aspirations and fears, struggles with positive body image and wants to belong like any teenager, but not every teen's father is a meth addict who rarely comes home. She gets creative working on a zine for school, tests the dating waters and prepares for college, all while discovering what it really means to be a good friend. The wild emotional oscillations in Gabi's diary entries are spot on and feel so authentic, reminding me of silly things I wrote in my own diary as a tween/teen. ( )

EN PRIMERO: para la persona who first read to me and taught me that words mattered and changed you. Gracias, Mamá.

Y EN SEGUNDO: for all the gorditas, flaquitas, and in-between girls trying to make their space in the world. Don't worry, you got this.
