I Wish You All the Best
When Ben De Backer comes out to their parents as non-binary, they’re thrown out of their house and forced to move in with their estranged older sister, Hannah, and her husband Thomas, whom Ben has never met before. Struggling with an anxiety disorder compounded by their parent’s rejection, they only come out to Hannah, Thomas, and their therapist to keep a low profile at their new school. But, Bens attempts at keeping the last half of senior year unnoticed are thwarted when Nathan Allen, a funny and charismatic student taking Ben under his wings. but, as their friendship grows, and their feelings change, it looks like something disastrous could turn into something better.
I Wish You All The Best is such a groundbreaking story – from the main character, Ben, being a non-binary character (and just not an LGBTQ+ character to fill a quota of minorities, but as a character that grows and develops within the story), and how the story can seemingly grow from one simple thing, into such a complex, and unique storyline and character is something amazing… to say I had high hopes after reading I Wish You All The Best couldn’t even be an understatement. Though I have to say, at times, I found it difficult to read, due to how sad some parts were… parts in which only made the reality of the book even more real.
