Ooooh, you are all very lucky beings today! I am bringing you ANOTHER blog tour…two in two days!
You’ve probably already heard a bit about this book since it’s majorly good…but if you haven’t here is the synopsis…
An inspiring, uplifting and sympathetic story about sexuality and self-acceptance, Lucy Sutcliffe’s debut memoir is a personal and moving coming out story. In 2010, at seventeen, Lucy Sutcliffe began an online friendship with Kaelyn, a young veterinary student from Michigan. Within months, they began a long distance relationship, finally meeting in the summer of 2011. Lucy’s video montage of their first week spent together in Saint Kitts, which she posted to the couple’s YouTube channel, was the first in a series of films documenting their long-distance relationship. Funny, tender and candid, the films attracted them a vast online following. Now, for the first time, Lucy’s writing about the incredible personal journey she’s been on; from never quite wanting the fairy-tale of Prince Charming to realising she was gay at the age of 14, through three years of self-denial to finally coming out to friends and family, to meeting her American girlfriend Kaelyn.
Co-star of the popular YouTube channel Kaelyn and Lucy which documented the long distance relationship she had with Kaelyn Petras. She and Kaelyn finally came together in August of 2014, ending the long distance element of their relationship.
She graduated from Plymouth College of Art and Design in 2014 with a degree in Film Arts. She works as a freelance film editor and author. She and Kaelyn’s channel mainly focuses on advice videos for LGBT youth.
She was born in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire to parents Sharon and Roger Sutcliffe.
I didn’t realise this book was an autobiography kind of thing until I started reading and noticed that the main girl Lucy is actually Lucy the author! Bear with me…
It was nice to read a real life story about a girl finding her feelings and herself and the struggles and happiness that comes with it. It’s really inspiring how many positive reactions Lucy got when coming out.
I found this book wasn’t just based around Lucy’s sexuality either, it told us about her life and other things that happened during a confusing time for her.
This book really opened my eyes to what the LGBT community has to go through and what gay people in other countries go through! Like I realised how lucky I am to live in the UK, a country that majority recognises and accepts the LGBT community!
Even though I’m straight, this book has made me feel proud of that and proud to be accepting and part of the 21st century!!!
On a final note, read this book and…
GO LUCY AND KAELYN, YOU RULE!
