I seriously second that first comment. I made the choice to come out as asexual early in high school, and I've been wondering whether that was okay ever since. The majority of my classmates have since then taken to shoving in my face every fanfiction they see where someone "fixes" Sherlock Holmes's lack of interest in a romantic relationship, and even my friends have sometimes pointed out that "kissing and f***ing is just how you show how loving you are". I'm actually in a romantic relationship, and we both agree that it's fine to keep it at sweets, cards, and the occasional lupine head-bump gesture.
But a lot of YA novels I've seen seem to brush over that side of a relationship or discard it entirely, and I don't think I've seen any that have a character (main or otherwise) who doesn't want to... erm... you know. It feels like a shallow kind of reassurance, but I'm really happy that there's a heroine who doesn't (um... re: previous sentence).
Anyway, this is getting kinda awkward and rambling, so... I guess I'll just say that I'm really excited to read Quicksilver (once I'm finished reading Ultraviolet), and again, thank you so, so much for... well, listing might start another rant, so... just, thank you.
