It’s sad – I personally know people that have been told to suppress who they are. It’s painful. And parents who would rather you suppress who you are rather than embrace who you are? I can’t even imagine what that’s like.
And the story was quite engaging. Right now, so much of our culture is about not being honest about yourself. Stories like this – about living without hiding – are important.
And when they are wrapped up in an engaging story – so much the better. These characters were compelling. And diverse. And their situation was…different…and interesting. And, throw a bit of magic in and you’ve got yourself a great story.
I thought the ending was a bit sudden, and a bit wrapped up too neatly. But I guess sometimes there really are happy endings.
