I got my first review of Monty (besides the one from my girlfriend). It's a four star and I'm stoked!
"I received a copy of Monty from the author Marcelle Liemont. It is an interesting story told in the first person of someone who is genderfluid and seems to be affected by depersonalization disorder. Monty returns to Melbourne after some time away in the desert. The reader eventually learns the reason for Monty’s departure, as it continues to cause problems in their life, to the point they decide to burn down their former home. Monty’s most responsible friend Nadia stops them in time to prevent arson and takes them to her place. There Monty seems to realize they need to follow a thread that reconnects them to something. This is an unconventional story about an unconventional person, but fascinating nonetheless."
