The Summer of Bitter and Sweet is such a powerful read, and unfortunately, the kind of book that probably won't be making it into any school libraries right now, since it deals with racism, sexuality, and sexual violence. The main character is deeply conflicted as she tries to find her own identity entering adulthood while also honoring her Métis heritage. It's sweet and funny and authentic and hard, and I read it in a single day because I could not stop. The author has handled so many sensitive issues with so much grace and care, and the result is just the kind of read teens need while figuring out who they are.
As a bonus, there's ace spectrum rep, if you have also had trouble finding that in your reads.
