Snapdragon by Kat Leyh

I found the cover of this offputting, thinking that the main character was some kind of demon animal human hybrid with antlers? I guess I didn’t read the reviews carefully enough? But enough to think it was something I might want to read. Tabby read it first and really liked it, so I gave it a go and guess what? I LOVED it. As mentioned before I didn’t pay close enough attention to the reviews so honestly didn’t know which way the book was going. Was it realistic fiction? Magical fiction? Fantasy? Misunderstandings? I didn’t know! And that was kind of refreshing because I ended up being surprised by basically every single thing in the story.
I really liked the family history romance in the story. I think it’s important for kids to know that same sex relationships have always been around. I loved how comfortable Snap was with her friend’s gender identity, and I loved the conversation she had with her mom about it. I just thought this was a really neat and unique story. It was entertaining, plus it was downright heartwarming.
