Reviews

"A funny, sweet, and emotional navigation of faith and queerness." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Snipes thoughtfully captures Milo's internal turmoil on his journey to self-acceptance, and the teens' willingness to explore their relationship amid calamity offers an engaging image of headlong first love." -- Publishers Weekly

"Fans of the author's podcast, The Two Princes, and those looking for a meaningful queer love story will delight in this high-stakes, energetically paced senior-year tale." -- Booklist

"Queer teens who value their faith may find solace in Milo's story, as he grows into himself and accepts his sexuality in tandem with his religious beliefs." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A love story for the end of the world." -- Mason Deaver, award-winning author of I Wish You All the Best and The Ghosts We Keep

"Wickedly funny and achingly honest, this queer love story moves heaven and earth--literally" -- Jasper Sanchez, author of The (Un)Popular Vote

"Milo will win your heart as he risks incurring the literal wrath of God--and losing everything in the process--in order to own his identity and love himself as he is." -- Misa Sugiura, author of Love & Other Natural Disasters

"Snipes is somehow both a harbinger of doom and a herald of love and I am completely here for it! If the apocalypse ever does happen, I'm going to want a copy of this book with me!" -- Jason June, author of Jay's Gay Agenda and Out of the Blue

"An absolute diamond of a debut! It humorously captures how queer boys falling in love for the first time can feel beautiful, strange, and literally earth-shattering all at once." -- Adam Sass, award-winning author of Surrender Your Sons
