This is in the same mental category as "Everyone Should Be A Feminist," but much much better executed.

The Subtweet by Vivek Shraya is a beautifully moving novel following the struggles with fame and social media.

If you are looking for a contemporary read that touches deep topics but makes it easy to digest, this book is perfect. Sexism, racism, relationship/friendship drama, the negative sides of the internet and social media, and the darkness of the music industry are all touched on. And to make this book even better? LGBTQ representation, and in such a beautiful way that it's not forced and thrown in your face.

Vivek Shraya is an artist and an author. The Subtweet is moving but also has a great analysis in it of culture today, all packed into one excellent fictional book. I wish I had more books like this in school where it's easy to read but also really punches you in the gut with it's meaning. It's so beautiful! Pick it up! Give Vivek all the love!

Also, I need to grab some more Vivek Shraya books! ASAP!

Five out of five stars.
