    3.5 stars. This was such a delightful graphic novel, featuring a diverse, queer, disabled cast of characters, set at a fan convention. Following Maisie, a queer disabled teen, as she goes to her first con with her mum, and meets Ollie, a non-binary teen and their dad. There's a cute queer romance, conversations about chronic pain and being disabled, and some fun moments for sci-fi & fantasy fans. I really enjoyed this. Thank you to the publisher for the eARC. 3.5 stars. This was such a delightful graphic novel, featuring a diverse, queer, disabled cast of characters, set at a fan convention.

    This was SO GORGEOUS!! I recently read the original short story in Meet Me at the Intersection and loved it and this graphic version is just adds so much! It's cute, the illustrations are beautiful, it's so queer and geeky, it shows Maisie's disability in such a beautiful and thoughtful way, and I am in love with all of the characters (except that ableist lady she can leave kthanks). But the parental relationships, the sweetness between Maisie and Ollie, the discussion about the importance of re This was SO GORGEOUS!!

But the parental relationships, the sweetness between Maisie and Ollie, the discussion about the importance of representation and the pure joy of reading a book with someone you like, creating your own fics and ships and having your first kiss at a con with someone adorable is just!!!!!! It's full of warm fuzzies, so do yourself a favour and read it!!
