As the Crow Flies
Charlie is on a Christian hike up a mountain with a group of girls. The only issue is that she is the only person of color on the trip and the only queer kid. Until she realizes Sydney is trans and one of the guides is half Dine. She is uncomfortable with the fact that she sticks out and that the main guide uses discriminatory language. The hike is a spiritual retreat that was started a hundred years ago by a group of women. It is interesting that this retreat up the mountain continues today.
I think the premise of this book is interesting and something worth telling. A young queer, black girl questioning her place in a white, cis, Christian world. However, the book ends abruptly so we don't get the conclusion and the storytelling just isn't that good. I wish the story gave better service to the plot but it doesn't. The art is beautiful.
