Book Review: Cherry Beach

Cherry Beach

by Laura McPhee-Browne

Review by Rosa

Beautiful and hopeful and sad yet strangely comforting, ‘Cherry Beach’ is a quick but intense read about friendship, love, and death. Best friends Hetty and Ness perfectly highlight the best and worst parts of being young and alive; the joys and the fears, the hopes and the heartbreak, and all the monotony in between. Also contains wonderful representation of queer women who are allowed to just exist without being sexualised, romanticised, villainised, or forced into the spotlight. Thank you Laura McPhee-Browne; I loved every moment of it.
