    This might be my most disappointing read of 2015 I have been so excited for this book There are so few books out there about people who identify as genderqueer that I couldn t wait for this book to be available But it did so many things wrong.Firstly, I knew early on that this wasn t going to getthan three stars It read like a textbook or essay discussing and informing the reader about being transgender and being genderqueer The story itself about Toni and Gretchen s relationship This might be my most disappointing read of 2015 I have been so excited for this book There are so few books out there about people who identify as genderqueer that I couldn t wait for this book to be available But it did so many things wrong.Firstly, I knew early on that this wasn t going to getth...

    I read the ARC of this book, and I m really disappointed in it I think I would ve liked it, except .The genderqueer representation is not good at all First, I m going to refer to the genderqueer character only as T through this review so as not to spoil things T does the WORST thing that reinforces the WORST stereotype about genderqueer people T acts like a hipster babydyke another character s word, not mine and goes around calling everyone by gender neutral pronouns, until the very I read the ARC of this book, and I m really disappointed in it I think I would ve liked it, except .The genderqueer representation is not good at all First, I m going to refer to the genderqueer character only as T through this review so...

    I don t really know where to start with this review All I really know is I was SO excited to read this There is so little representation of people who identify as genderqueer and I couldn t wait to get my hands on it, but I ended up so incredibly disappointed.Also to note, for the purposes of this review, I will referring to Toni as T as to not spoil anything.To start with, the writing felt forced and read like a collection of short essays or even a textbook, and there was barely any resembla I don t really know where to start with this review All I really know is I was SO excited to read this There is so little representation of people who identify as genderqueer and I couldn t wait to get my hands on it, but I ended up so incredibly disappointed.Also to note, for the purposes of this review, I will referring to Toni as T as to not spoil anything.To start with, the writing felt forced and read like a collection of short essays or even a textbook, and there was barely any resemblance of a plot The plot essentially follows T and Gretchen s first year of college apart from eachother and how this affects their relationship The plot was incredibly weak and essentially just served as a tool to try and educate readers about being genderqueer or transgender.I wouldn t normally have a huge problem with this as this is so rarely discussed in YA or at all , however among the info dumps about how things can be problematic, was in turn...

    This is not positive representation of what it means to be genderqueer If you were attracted to this book in part because Toni is genderqueer, What We Left Behind will only leave you disappointed and enraged because it is used interchangably with being trans and generally treated as a transitional stage or a place you are when you aren t certain, not as its own gender identity Repeatedly, characters use the wrong pronouns for someone, get corrected, and continue to use the wrong pronouns any...

    I agree with this review in every respect Still, I will try to elaborate on my thoughts.This book is problematic inways than I can describe Do NOT look to this book to educate you on the trans spectrum or the queer community in general This is not good queer representation, even worse genderqueer representation if it can e...
