I didn’t mind this too much since the book is simply delightful and entertaining, which makes up for the obvious hammering home of how difficult life can be for those different. While readers may not appreciate the lecturing, the story more than makes up for those few moments with touching lessons, heart felt sentiment, and an adorable love story for books of all kinds and sexualities.
