It Goes Like This by Miel Moreland: YA Book Review

  It Goes Like This  by Miel Moreland  Overview: Moonlight Overthrow took the world by storm as a group of 14 year-olds from Minnesota. Over the years, though, the queer band has evolved and fell apart. Eva's heart was broken by the sudden end of the band (and her first relationship with bandmate Celeste). Steph's mental health was slowly being destroyed by being non-binary yet stuck conforming to the standards of a girlband. Celeste had aspirations of a solo career, and Gina initiated the break-up in favor of an acting career. While Eva has moved on to penning chart topping songs from behind the scenes and going to UCLA, Gina has the acting career she thoughts she wanted, and Celeste is going it alone on a massive world tour. Steph retreated back into their family life in Duluth, shunning LA. But when a storm rocks Duluth, the silent group chat springs to life as the band realizes they needs to help. Can one week heal years of broken emotional bones?  Overall: 4.5 Characters:
