Review by Booklist Reviews

*Starred Review* August Landry, self-described bisexual disaster, moves to New York with the vague goal of finishing college and putting some distance between her and her mother back in New Orleans, who can only think about her missing brother. August is cynical and closed off, but she manages to make friends with her roommates in Flatbush, and she manages to fall in love with a girl she meets on the subway. The problem is that Jane only exists on the Q, having gotten stuck there some time in the 1970s. But as they get to know each other, the connections pile up like a full stack at Pancake Billy's House of Pancakes. Maybe this isn't just love; maybe it's destiny. McQuiston's follow-up to her megahit debut, Red, White & Royal Blue (2019), is the same kind of hilarious, sexy love story with a strong narrative voice. Her affection for her characters—each of whom lives on the spectrum of sexuality and gender—gleams, and no quirk is wasted as this romance morphs into an homage to found family and coming-of-age, and onto a metaphysical heist. It is a love story on all levels, one that marvels at the magic of human connection and is unabashedly romantic. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

McQuiston's joyful sophomore romp mixes all the elements that made Red, White & Royal Blue so outstanding—quirky characters, coming-of-age confusion, laugh-out-loud narration, and hilarious pop-cultural references ("Bella Swan, eat your horny little Mormon heart out")—into something totally its own. At 23, August Landry moves to Brooklyn with few belongings but heaps of emotional baggage from a childhood spent helping her conspiracy theorist mother work to track down a long-missing relative. She is, as her new roommate puts it, "a reformed girl detective," and she's jaded and bitter enough to earn the title. But before long she finds herself falling for Jane Su, a punk lesbian she sees everyday on her commute. Jane's circumstances are also far from ordinary: she's from the 1970s, displaced in time by a mysterious event. Worse, she's stuck on the bizarrely malfunctioning Q line, doomed to ride the Subway forever in an amnesiac's fog—unless August can find a way to rescue her. Together with her found family of queer misfits, August sets out to save Jane and find herself. With all the fun and camp of a drag show (of which this novel features more than one) but grounded in the tenderness of first love, this time-slip rom-com is an absolute delight. McQuiston brings the goods. Agent: Sara Megibow, KT Literary. (June) Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly.
