  • I want to go on a date to a Dunkin Donuts drive thru with this book, and tbh reading it I feel like I did Florida is important to my heart in a weird and confusing way, and reading this I realized how I have not even realized how much I wanted queer stories in Florida I would recommend to anyone interested in queer women, or Florida, or drive thrus, or having a body that might definitely is definitely will someday break down, or a heart with love troubles.

  • Kristen Arnett s Felt in the Jaw is real in every sense of the word If you read to escape reality, to breakaway from the grind of life, expecting a release from the darkness in this world, you will not find that here The experience that Felt in the Jaw offers is not so much one of reading a book but rather staring into a large mirror reflecting the world around you Kristen s stories are a deeply personal look into everyday life A dissection of troubles and annoyances that a lot of people exp Kri [...]
