   Fun Read
This book is fun if you're a sapphic person, this will probably connect with its lighthearted glimpses into lesbianism and queer pop culture milestones in some way. That said, there were a few portions that felt a little too close to the nose for me, and as a Taylor Swift lesbian, I realize now that I am definitely in the wrong demographic for this book. But the personal and vulnerable stories that Gutowitz shares are incredibly beautiful!
   omg it's soooo good
I love this book SO much omg, it's so smart and funny and heartfelt and important and I wish every single person would read it! As soon as I finish it, I'm going to start it again. Jill! Thank you for writing this, Jill! !
Think of your friend, who is the best at telling stories when you go to dinner or for drinks. This is that time in book form. A hysterical colloquial reading of the “ Celesbianism ” of social culture and well-growing up at the same time computers, the internet and the pop culture continuous scroll addiction came to be part of everyday life. I cannot express how funny and relatable this book is, but also forces the reader to pause, reflect and reevaluate what is important in life and accept that it is okay to want something different from what you were initially aiming for in life.
   a good look into how pop-culture can impact your identity
This book is an extremely personal account of the author's relationship with pop culture and how it has influenced the way she views herself and her sexuality. The writing stood out to me because it felt intimate, as if we're on facetime and Gutowitz took me on a memory lane. It is possible with the way the essays are written, the pop culture references and terminology that you will probably hear online more than in person, not everyone is going to get on board and favor these essays. But, this does not mean that you should not read it. Gutowitz did a good job in digging deeper into how pop culture can affect us, especially in the negative heteropatriarchal ways that affect young people in ways they won t realize until they get older.
