Odd One Out is a solid story, but the narration didn't work so well for me. It was difficult to distinguish the three different narrator's voices, and I found I had to go back to check whose thoughts I was reading more than once.
I really enjoyed the whole inner discussions Jupiter had with herself. About labels, mostly. Because what are all those labels for? Ourselves? Or other people so that we can fit into their world view? I think that's what I liked the most about the story, because labels can be very restrictive.
Did not like the ending. I was fine that the Mc questioned gee sexuality and I get that part, but I didn’t like that her feelings have to be decided upon one person. The book led up to a finish it wouldn’t execute. If you’re going to build up to a thing then go all the way. Weak ending.
