Description

“I strongly encourage you to read Juliet Takes a Breath. It's quite dazzling, funny as hell, poignant, all the things.–Roxane Gay

“Even if Holden Caulfield was born in the Bronx in the 1980s, he could never be this awesome.”

Inga Muscio


Juliet Milagros Palante is leaving the Bronx and headed to Portland, Oregon. She just came out to her family and isn’t sure if her mom will ever speak to her again. But Juliet has a plan, sort of, one that’s going to help her figure out this whole “Puerto Rican lesbian” thing. She’s interning with the author of her favorite book: Harlowe Brisbane, the ultimate authority on feminism, women’s bodies, and other gay-sounding stuff.


Will Juliet be able to figure out her life over the course of one magical summer? Is that even possible? Or is she running away from all the problems that seem too big to handle?


With more questions than answers, Juliet takes on Portland, Harlowe, and most importantly, herself.

Come to the monthly LGBT ERG Reading Group. We will be reading Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera
