I feel somewhat bittersweet about Why We Fight, as I tend to with any series I enjoy coming to an end This whole series is TJ Klune s trademark over the top comedic deliciousness, and Why We Fight is definitely funny From the first chapter, I was having giggle fits and that continued throughout the book and wait until you get to chapter 15 Why We Fight takes place in 2016, before the election that brought to light just how much work we still have to do Yes, there are some politics in this story There has to be We live in a time of bathroom bills and religious freedom laws A time when the life expectancy of transgender women of color is 31 years We ve come a long way since my childhood, but we ve a long way to go, still While this book has so much humor in it, and ridiculous 80 s movie plot situations, there is a thread of heaviness throughout I ve been looking forward to Corey s Kori s story since I first met them in The Art of Breathing Being both bigender and biracial, they have had than their fair share of life challenge Wow, what a journey this entire series has been This life it wasn t one I expected to have It wasn t one that I d gone looking for It d found me in a thrift store when I d least expected it And while there had been ups and downs, those peaks and valleys that felt almost manic, I wouldn t change it for anything While this story was slightly less campy and over the top than the previous books in the series, I felt like it did a good job of wrapping things up in a nice, neat bow in this series finale.The book definitely had its OTT moments, like the egg citing vibrating egg debacle, but overall Corey Kori was a serious character than say Paul, Vince, or Sandy, and since this was his her book, that slightly subdued tone bled through From the very beginning of the series, Corey Kori always felt much like a secondary character for me, so I do have to admit that my OMG, OMG, OMG, O.M.M.F.Gexcitement level was a bit lower when starting this book.I would ve liked quite a few details or stories about what Corey Kori went thru prior to meeting Sandy at This is the fourth book in the At First Sight series and I have loved each and every single one They make me so freaking happy Now I first fell deeply in love with Corey Kori when I first met them in The Art of Breathing , and I am so glad I finally got to read their story.and what a great story it was Corey Kori is bigender and biracial, which unfortunately means that life hasn t always been the easiest for them That saidI think they turned out pretty awesome I love seeing that they weren t too bitter about what happened in the past Apparently, Corey Kori have been crushing on their former college professor Jeremy Olsen, who turned out to be Robert s son Charlie s man And guess who is gonna be his temporary boss for his summer job at the LGBTQ center That s rightJeremy How will Corey Kori ever be able to work under him pun intended They are sure that Jeremy doesn t feel the same, but when they are proven wrong, how will they keep their hands off each other and stay professional.With Paul and Sandy s noses all up in their business things are bound to get weirdand crazy funny I especially loved the parts with Johnny Depp in them I absolutely laughed my ass off reading this one, though there were also times when I got a bit choked up No Wookie C 4,5 starsI absolutely adored this one T.J Klune is one of my favourite authors And this series is extremely well written I have never laughed so hard Until I had tears in my eyes This book is the last one in the series and it s so hard to let these amazing but hilarious characters go I strongly recommend to read all the books in this series in order to better understand the dynamics between the characters I was very excited about Corey s Kori s story They are bigender and biracial This book didn t disappoint We get the same impossible and hilarious situations, the banter between the characters is out of this world It was amazing to revisit Paul, Sandy, Charlie, Nana I have a feeling I will reread this series many times in the future This book was a little heavier than the previous ones But I I really don t know how to say this But this was not at all what I had hoped for.Corey Kori has been a wonderful character who popped up in previous books of this series and as Tyler s friend in BOATK And I always rooted for him her.I saw him her as a tender hearted, vulnerable, but fierce person, and I couldn t wait for him her to get their own story.That happens here only partly Corey does re meet the man he she has had a crush on for quite a while, and I was looking for the depth of emotion, the tangle of feelings I have come to associate with TJ s books Some heart rending relationship development, some deep connection between the main characters If you have read some of TJ s books, you know what I mean.However, what we got is this at least the way I see it The emphasis of this book is declared by its title Why We Fight, and it is a huge declaration why people under the LGBTQ umbrella have the right to fight for who they are and why they should do exactly that.I would say about half of the book deals with these topics, and sometimes it all sounds like a lecture or a My sides and my cheeks hurt from laughing Seriously though, for a day after reading this I had workout pain in my face and upper body from the deep belly laughs I kept having while reading.Why We Fight starts in the summer of 2016 and we re taken back to Tucson, back to our wonderful group of friends and found family Corey Kori, Sandy, Charlie, Paul, Vince, Matty, Larry, Nana, and Darren We even get a little screen time with Tyson Thompson from the Bear, Otter, and the Kid Chronicles.We met Charlie s beau, Robert, at the end of Until You and briefly got to meet Robert s son, Jeremy Turns out Jeremy was Corey Kori s former professor, and is also now their current interim boss for the summer at a non profit LGBTQ center So no matter how much both may want to start something they have to remain professional But when you know it s real, that can prove to be impossible.While Why We Fight is first and foremost a comedy, and it is funny, it s also thought provoking and surprisingly emotional I love how TJ Klune expertly weaves those little emotional bombs in between some of the most hilarious scenes I ve ever read in a book Corey Kori s story absolutely lived up to my expectations You are exactly the way you re supposed to be To say I ve been dying for Why We Fight by TJ Klune book is putting lightly I ve adored this series since the first book for it s OTT characters and humor, and while this book carries a different in tone from its predecessors, it made sense why The story took place in 2016 we all know what happened in 2016 I don t think a history lesson is warranted I think because of the importance of everything happening I could look past the fact Why We Fight was serious than its predecessors in the At First Sight books.Some highlights Age gap Bigender and biracial rep I mentioned before that this book carried a heavier tone than the others, but not everything is doom and gloom we still get to catch up with the whole gang and of course crazy funny shit happened There was still plenty of laughs out loud moments I ve loved Corey Kori since they were first introduced and my love for them only grew Jeremy He s Corey Kori s old professor and his perfect match Relationship development Klune gave us some UST Corey Kori was crushing on his college professor Jeremy Olsen and lo and behold destiny out them to work closely together for the summer The story is told strictly from Corey Kori s voice And the end is HEA, but it felt bittersweet It s the end of a beloved series I know where Klune is coming in terms of not wanting to drag out a serious, but I m hoping that Diego keeps talking and talking to him until he s forced to write another I feel like crying, guys Sure, I liked Why We Fight, sure, it was good, but this isn t a regular series for me, and my expectations were sky high I m obsessed with the first two books in the series read my reviews here and here , and I was 100% sure I was going to 5 star this one toosobs uncontrollably Look, I know T.J Klune had to work with a lot with this story We have a biracial, bigender MC in Corey Kori, and he did them proud by being respectful and playful with their character However, Corey Kori had a hard past and most of the time is spent at an LGBTQ youth center, so the book had a very serious tone that I wasn t expecting Also, the story takes place in 2016, the year that he who should not be named was starting his presidential journey, so there is the weight of that also on the story The whole book felt much less carefree and much deeper, which doesn t necessarily have to be a bad thing, but it just didn t work out quite like I was hoping it would There So many stars for all the laughter and joyanother awesome read with my cyberchild Josyfull review to follow sooish It s time to say good bye Why We Fight is the end of what has been a hilarious, sexy and simply fun filled journey with a collection of what has turned out to be the most interesting and unique group of people one could ever know They are without a doubt strong, brave, loyal, loving, compassionate and fierce but above all else they are family.While there was a serious undertone to this story that was due in part to the MCs, it also felt reflective of the times2016 was the beginning of a time of political turmoil for the United States and while this is reflected in the story it doesn t overwhelm things and added a strong sense of realism to things.As well as being Corey Kori and Jeremy s story Why We Fight is the final book in TJ Klune s At First Sight series It s a good bye of sorts and I have to admit I was prepared for the tears because it s always sad saying good bye to friends, what I wasn t prepared for was the laughterno it wasn t the same kind of humor as what we found in Sandy and Darrren s
