Description

Ophelia After All is all about love, discovery, and friendship, and family. We follow Ophelia, a 17 year old Cuban Irish girl who is in her last year of high school, as she navigates through spiraling changes and self-discovery. No one said you couldn’t join senior council on your own, Ags,” I reply. Lindsay nods in agreement.

It’s a tragic cliché! It’s like the school wants us to spike the punch bowl and lose our virginities in a limo,” Ags huffs. Ophelia After All is perhaps the most unique, and DEFINITELY the best young adult novel I've ever read. A joy to read from start to finish, Racquel Marie captures a sweet, lovable and unique cast of characters that felt so realistic to me I was longing to join their group. It takes a LOT to make me feel the same way I felt while reading Red White and Royal Blue (which is my favorite novel in terms of character writing) but this novel 1000% did that. I know that I'll be holding this book close to my heart for a long time. It was wholesome, emotional and heartbreaking at once. In this admirable coming of age YA contemporary, we follow a 17 years old Cuban-Irish teen named Ophelia throughout her journey of self discovery. Ophelia is used to get crushes on every cute boy she comes across to. This happens so frequently that everyone calls her "boy crazy Ophelia". Ophelia has her senior year and senior prom planned since forever. But her plan starts crumbling down when she finds herself falling for a girl named Talia. She surprising discovers that she- "the boy crazy Ophelia"- has a crush on a girl. Add to that the problems in her once solid friend groups are spiraling a little out of control. High School life is full of drama. But what happens when the drama becomes too much to bear. Before Ophelia can even register what's happening, her entire life starts changing before her eyes.... Maybe I would’ve if the senior council president was still Vijay Khan from last year,” I say, fanning my face while Agatha rolls her eyes. “Seriously, why couldn’t he have just taken one for the team and been a super senior? He was easily the best president.” Lindsay shoots me a look. “Okay, at the very least he was the most swoonworthy.”Sammie was my favorite next to Ophelia, he was also relatable. He's also funny, cute, and awesome. Ophelia and Sammie are platonic soulmates, I adore their friendship a lot! With a lovably messy, flawed cast of characters and a relatable, authentic protagonist questioning her sexuality while going through the pains of growing up and growing apart... Ophelia After All is a welcome breath of fresh air in the YA contemporary genre." —The Nerd Daily

Other than narrating Ophelia's journey of self discovery, this book explores a lot of different themes of teenage life. The story also focuses on various problematic issues that prevails in our society. The novel offers a heartfelt tale about family, friendship and high school drama. the way she shares her life with her parents. i used to jump into the car after school every day with gossip updates for my mom. she knew everything. except for the period of time when we also had a fight and i leaned on my dad. We would never!” Agatha clutches her hand to her chest. “You know we gave up that immature practice decades ago, dear Samuel.”

This book made me laugh out loud. This book made me cry. It had me on my toes. It broke me apart then gradually sewed up the broken pieces together again. In a word, reading this book, was an amazing experience. Suffice to say, I’d begun to worry we’d outgrown our betting. With Agatha trading in NorCal for SoCal when she leaves for fashion school in LA in the fall, part of me has taken every fragment of change in our relationship as a sign that she’s going to forget all about me the second she’s surrounded by avant-garde fashionistas whose wardrobes extend past floral print and canvas shoes. But maybe this means she isn’t ready to let go either.
