My rating: 4 of 5 stars (3.5 rounded up to a 4)

Just Your Local Bisexual Disaster is a debut YA romance novel by Andrea Mosqueda. The ebook version is 336 pages. I listened to the audiobook, which clocks in at ten and a half hours and is narrated by Stacy Gonzalez. We follow our main character with a first-person point-of-view.

Maggie Gonzales needs to find an escort to her little sister’s quinceañera. Trying not to be a bisexual cliché, she considers asking three people in her friend group: her best friend and first crush Amanda, her ex-boyfriend (twice) Matthew, and cute new girl Dani. When she’s tasked with an AP art project assigned to help figure out what she wants in life, she decides to use her photography skills to help her sort out her feelings for her friends.

For the most part, I enjoyed listening to this book. The dialog gets a little clunky and cliché at times, which is a hallmark of a debut for me. The chapters are also pretty long. The writing definitely solidified for me as the book went on; I think that this book just needed a bit more editing. Overall, I’m looking forward to reading more from this author. I appreciated the bisexual representation in this book, and especially the fact that all of the relationships in this book felt very fleshed out and real.
