About the Author
EMILY FOSTER is a professional sex educator with a Ph.D. and a New York Times bestselling nonfiction sex science book (under a different name) to her credit. Writing popular nonfiction taught her that, if you want to change how people see the world, storytelling is better than all the research, statistics, and logic in the world. She lives in western Massachusetts with two dogs, two cats, and a cartoonist. Emily is funnier in real life (and hardly ever speaks in the third person).

I LOVED that Charles understands that he's messed up and goes to therapy; lots of books seem to think that major psychological issues will magically get solved if someone just loves that person enough, and while that certainly helps, it takes actual work in therapy to figure out how to mend yourself. I liked the introduction of his siblings, and his mom, though I perhaps wished she had a little more agency with regards to his dad.
One change that I really liked from the first book was getting chapters of Charles' thoughts; one of the reasons I don't usually care for first person is that it's often just one person's point of view. I thought adding his thoughts and feelings in, from his own perspective, really added to the book. Someone who grew up like Annie might have trouble connnecting with how much of a struggle love and trust are for Charles, but as someone with a background closer to his, I really felt like it was a pretty accurate portrayal of what it's like to try to overcome all of that and be the person you want to be, so you can be with the person you want to be with. I highly recommend, especially if you liked the first one!
