Review of Get it Together, Delilah! by Erin Gough

3 of 5 stars

CW: homophobia, bullying

This is not a bad book. I just didn’t necessarily like it. I made the mistake of going into this book with high and set expectations. I thought this would be a fluffy queer coffeeshop-AU type story and I was so here for it. Though it has some fluffy moments, the book is predominately about the main character facing a handful of hardships that 17-year-olds shouldn’t have to worry about. On top of that, I simply didn’t care for Delilah. Sometimes that happens, and it makes it hard for me to get into the book. I don’t even remember if there were moments I thought were problematic, because most of what I was thinking while reading this book was, “How close am I to the end?”

That does not mean you shouldn’t read it, though! I would recommend this book to folks who are looking for a queer, Australian story about growing up too fast and dealing with homophobia and crushes.
