It’s my birthday 🥳 I love to read a birthday themed book for it, and last night I binged on this gem 💎
Birthday by Meredith Russo
Genre: YA, Contemporary, LGBT
BUG Rating: 4.5/5
Overall: The story follows Eric and Morgan, who’s friendship is bound by being born in the same hospital, on the same day, at the same time! The book spans several years and how their friendship and lives change over this time. It’s a truly incredible book. I saw a recommendation for it a while ago and I’ve only just got round to it 🙈. I cried a lot, I smiled a lot. I loved this book 😭 The story is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. It’s a powerful story of friendship, love, grief and self discovery/acceptance. An important must read book, I can’t recommend it enough!
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.
