Loveless is a story about a girl named Georgia figuring out her sexuality during her freshman year of college. She goes to school never having dated anyone and tries to change that. Through the process, she realizes that she’s aroace and doesn’t experience romantic or sexual attraction to anyone. This book is a first-person view into the process of accepting being aromantic and asexual. You get Georgia’s deepest and most personal thoughts and Oseman beautifully portrays both the good and painful sides of being on the a-spectrum. This book also discusses the importance of platonic relationships. The main character has her flaws, but in part of the story she has to come to terms with how her actions affect other people. She and the people around her are held accountable for their mistakes, making the characters lovable and realistic. This book is for anyone who is on the aroace spectrum or for anyone who wants to know what it may be like to be on the aroace spectrum. There is a lesbian character, a pansexual character, and a trans side character. We see a side character who is allo-aro and another who is allo-ace.
