    1. I could write so much about To Stand In The Light and how amazing it is, but for right now all I will say is this: on a bad day the best cure for feeling better is to climb inside a Kayla Bashe story and stay there for as long as possible. Reading her fiction gives you a sense of how wonderful the world (and people) can bed, for a time, everything _is_ better. Maybe that's why I like to linger so long among her words.


    2. Oh boy.The first 30% were absolutely lovely. The characters, the diversity, man WOW! But the execution booo.How can this even?After the lovely beginning, first, the writing was just off, like hopping around the characters heads, constantly. This was because the MCs were separated for four years, but the story was still continuously told from both their perspectives. Yes, it is that weird and confusing.And then when they meet again and both realise they want to date the other, things go just addi [...]


    3. I love Kayla Bashe's work, and To Stand In The Light is another incredible book from her! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Shadow, a nonbinary hero who struggles with their appearance and their past, meets Bean, a young girl with extraordinary powers she doesn't know how to fully control. Shadow takes Bean to the superhero academy they studied at when they were younger, and Bean learns to unlock her true potential while making friends- and an enemy. You'll grow to love Shadow as much as Bean does, and t [...]


    4. Actual Rating: 2.5The characters were cool, and the plot was pretty okay, but the writing was Not Great. It was choppy and disorganized sometimes, specially since it wasn't divided into chapters at all but the point of view changed often, and there were some distracting typos. The characters were unique, though, and I appreciate the diversity (in genders, sexualites, disabilities, races/ethnicities, etc), even if the side characters weren't super fleshed out. Overall it was a pretty awesome conc [...]


    5. "Antimatter pigeons are trying to hold the Empire State Building hostage. Rosita needs backup!"Imagine a friendship turned romance between young superheroes, one of whom has power over light, while the other commands shadows and darkness.Imagine the miles-deep yet frightened connection between two people horribly hurt by rejection, one by her white parents when the Korean baby they’d adopted wouldn’t become the musical prodigy they wanted and then denied her ADD treatment, the other from the [...]


    6. I jumped right into this book with little idea what to expect, and let me tell you, I wasn't disappointed. This is a wonderful and touching story, and I love how it deals more with overcoming internal conflicts and accepting one's self than it does with the outside supervillains. Shadow and Bean are absolutely adorable. You kind of just want to cuddle both of them and tell them it's all going to be okay. Especially Shadow. :3Anyway! If you're looking for a fast-paced story with an incredibly div [...]


    7. To Stand in the Light is a fantastic, energetic, fun read which I can enthusiastically recommend to a diverse audience. The fast pace can feel a little rushed at first, because this book gets a lot done in a short time, but by the end, it feels good and right that it accomplishes its goals with so little delay and hesitation. The characters are believable, sympathetic, and vibrant. They come from a palette of every conceivable neurotype and gender identity, and their experiences with ADHD, PTSD, [...]


    8. I didn't expect this book to feel so good.I too have PTSD from child abuse and I could read this book without being triggered. I even smiled all through the ending.At first, it was just fun to read about a superhero school, then I could relate to Bean and her issues, I liked seeing her relationship with Shadow develop. I liked the variety of secondary characters. I liked the universe of the book and how the superheroes' aesthetics, personalities and skills (not just Bean and Shadow) differed fro [...]


    9. A little more like a 3.5 star read, but rounded up for the great representation of mental illness and the presence of nonbinary supporting characters as well as the main character. The beginning was a tad confusing and I wish that there had been a bit more worldubilding—if I hadn't read a tweet stating that this was set in an alternate version of the 1980s, I might not have been able to tell from the text—but the story itself was sweet and I loved seeing how Bean grew over the course of the [...]


    10. I've read this a few times, and each time I read it I get more confused. Not in a good way, either. A great number of questions emerge from the disjointed narrative, very few of which are answered, and it's difficult to point to any because there are no chapters. It's one long string of ping-ponging perspective that can't maintain a consistent sense of scale.The whole universe is apparently open to humanity and the other species (even other dimensions!), but don't get your hopes up for seeing an [...]


    11. In the first Kayla Bashe book I read, the concept was great but the writing was very shaky. I think her technical skill has improved considerably since then! I enjoyed this queer superhero adventure wholeheartedly. Shadow, a famous young superhero with power over darkness, is devastated when they find that their adoptive parents have been killed by vicious wildlife on an alien planet. They also learn that their parents had taken in a teenage girl named Bean, who survived the beasts but will need [...]


    12. I am so glad that I finished this book. I didn't read what it was about before I started so I was totally confused at first. But once Shadow and Bean come back to the city and the school, I had gotten my bearings. Their relationship was so cute and real. Bean was just the best. I definitely connected more with her than Shadow. They were great too though. They could easily have their own story with how deep their background was. All in all, this was a good quick read.
