Review: Some Girls Bind by Rory James

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.


Jamie knows that she isn’t like other girls. She has a secret. She binds her chest every day to feel more like herself. Jamie questions why she is drawn to this practice and why she is afraid of telling her friends, who have their own secrets. Could she really be genderqueer?

My Review:

4/5 ⭐️ this book was formatted similar to how Ellen Hopkins books are formatted which was enjoyable. I really enjoyed Jamie’s story!! This was a really enjoyable LGBTQIA+ read. Pick this one up when it comes out February 1st! Especially if you love stories formatted like poetry.

  1. Wow, thanks for the thorough review on this one! I also have it on my Netgalley list and was a little hesitant about the title since I was worried it’d be transphobic. Sounds like a fascinating and well-written read!

    1. I didn’t find it transphobic but I did find it informative. I don’t see a lot of books dealing with non-binary/genderfluid/gender queer characters. Let me know what you think of it when you read it! I’d love to discuss it with you 😊
