This book was pretty awesome Origianlly written in German, it comes without a lot of that stupid baggage about omgi mgay whatwillidonow howwillilive etc i mean, that s a valid experience, certainly, but not every queer young adult book has to be about that.ANYWAY What I liked most about this book was actually not at all related to it being a queer book which is, of course, how it should be, and therefore makes this book so much better My favorite parts were the really great descriptions This book was pretty awesome Origianlly written in German, it comes without a lot of that stupid baggage about omgi mgay whatwillidonow howwillilive etc i mean, that s a valid experience, certainly, but not every queer young adult book has to be about that.ANYWAY What I liked most about this book was actually not at all related to it being a queer book which is, of course, how it should be, and therefore makes this book so much better My favorite parts were the really great descriptions of feeling like you re going out of your mind being bored by yourself and too big for silent places and just needing to get the fuck out E.G Sometimes it can be really quiet all around but inside everything starts screaming very loud, and you just want to scream yourself or kick something or spit or bounce off the walls or something.Sometimes I feel so big inside that I don t seem to fit Also I have to go out I have to do something, right now My room is too small It s afternoon again, and it s always the same Too much the same, too small Not just my room but this whole house, this town I can t breathe here any.I get on my bike and ride away from our house, fast, down the streets, away, faster, right out to the country roads I ride and the cold rips my skin off with its claws I get a cramp in my side That s good I m freezing my ass off That s good, too, because I can feel it all I m not hibernating like the other marmots anyMy heart is beating faster as I pump my way up the hill And I imagine what it would be like to just stand up, maybe grab my coat Walk past the other desks, chairs, idiots who I ve never exchanged so much as tow words with Stand up and use my legs Look, outside, there s a world that exists between 8am and noon Outside there s life to taste and smell, and in winter it s cold Then i just keep going Leave this small town and go out through the fields and through one small village after another, even farther than I ve gone on my bike And maybe then I ll get on a train and keep going even farther And maybe I ll get to some place that looks nice and I ll get off And then maybe I ll stay there Girl from Mars, written by Tamara Bach, was originally published in German, but it doesn t lose anything in translation It s a slim book which only took me about two hours to read told in the first person voice of fifteen year old Miriam, who is suffering from intense ennui When you live in a city, life must be different Different from here In this small town, every day is the same I get up but I m not awake I eat but I don t know if I m hungry I drink but my mouth stays dry It s winte Girl from Mars, written by Tamara Bach, was originally published in German, but it doesn t lose anything in translation It s a slim book which only took me about two hours to read told in the first person voice of fifteen year old Miriam, who is suffering from intense ennui When you live in a city, life must be different Different from here In this small town, every day is the same I get up but I m not awake I eat but I don t know if I m hungry I drink but my mouth stays dry It s winter but I m still asleep Every day the same Miriam s parents are affectionately disinterested, and her older brother lives in the basement Enter Laura, the new girl in school, who kisses Miriam and then pretends nothing happened, leading to a crisis in the teenager s life What I liked about this book, as opposed to other GLBT first time stories, was its bits of stream of consciousness narration Miriam s commentary is not italicized as thoughts as it might be in other contemporary works, but instead flows organically Laura pulls her legs onto the couch and clinks my glass with hers Cheers Maybe we re drinking too much.I want to kiss you.I shouldn t drink so much I should have eaten something.I m sorry I m so sorry that it s making me completely sad Bach or her translator does an excellent job of conveying the angst, the confusion, and the joy of falling in love with someone who is completely opaque to you
