Birthday by Meredith Russo (Book Review)

⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.5 Stars)

Blurb:

Boyhood meets The Sun Is Also a Star in this unconventional love story by award-winning author Meredith Russo!

Two kids, Morgan and Eric, are bonded for life after being born on the same day at the same time. We meet them once a year on their shared birthday as they grow and change: as Eric figures out who he is and how he fits into the world, and as Morgan makes the difficult choice to live as her true self. Over the years, they will drift apart, come together, fight, make up, and break up—and ultimately, realize how inextricably they are a part of each other.

My thoughts:

This books feels important.
This book is important.

From time to time you stumble upon something that truly marks you. Things that you will keep with you as long as you live. Birthday will always occupy a space of my mind.

I don’t want to talk too much about the story because I went in a bit blind and I loved it.

It’s a love story, a story of acceptance, of family, bullying, identity, friendship and freedom.

My only tiny complaint is that I wanted more from it. It ends on a beautiful note, but I was so invested in the journey that I wish we got to see them beyond their 18 years of age.

This book is important.
Go read it.
