Other Girls Like Me by Stephanie Davies

I love reading about people’s lives and what got them to being who they are. A fascinating read.

2020-2021 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Conned (The Bureau #6)

Conned (The Bureau #6) by Kim Fielding

The setting is cool, and not too over the top, with most of the features logical or without immediately noticeable inconsistencies. The style is, like, great - spelling, vocabulary, grammar + no in-your-face usage of thesaurus - or using words that mean not what the author thinks they mean. A really smooth read. Characters - 3D and alive, not 2D and cardboard, with change justified by plot. The plot - a proper mystery novel. The deduction is because of deus ex finale.

2020-2021 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Franklin in Paradise

Franklin in Paradise by John Patrick

A lot is going on here. A post-apocalypse setting described, in the first person, by someone who is on the autism spectrum in love with someone who is on the asexual spectrum. I think John Patrick Franklin took too much on. Still, Franklin imagined the setting--an Amish museum cum working farm--brilliantly. And kudos for thinking of telomeres as the cause of the apocalypse.
