Before I begin my 2016 Australian book challenge I would like to write about another good book I read this year.
What we left behind by Robin Talley is a ya fiction with sexually diverse characters. Gretchen is a lesbian and her girlfriend Toni is gender queer. Both of these characters are well fleshed out and I love their views of the world. Robin Talley is a master of characterization, all the minor characters are quite fleshed out as well. I thoroughly enjoyed this part of the book.
However for me I felt disappointed with the ending. I don't like things to be left up in the air. The ending wasn't final enough for me. However I still really enjoyed reading about these characters and the opinions they expressed in the story. If I had to rate it I would give it four stars and despite the ending I still highly recommend it!
