Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera

Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera

Juliet Takes a Breath is not a book to take lightly. The reader follows Juliet to her summer internship, after her first year in college, with famous feminist author, Harlowe Brisbane, after coming out to her family. During this summer she learns a lot, about herself, about the LGBTQ+ community, and the intersectionality of being a Puerto Rican lesbian from the Bronx. I read this book in about 3 hours and could not stop thinking about it. This book tackles many topics, including white feminism and being introduced to the LGBTQ+ community for the first time. I think this is an important read since it explains the intersectionality of feminism and I really enjoyed reading it. One thing I really loved about it is that I could not stop thinking about this book, I read this on a flight and had trouble reading anything else for the remaining 2 hours of my flight. Everyone who calls themselves a feminist needs to read this (although I would recommend it for high school and up).
