The dialogue doesn’t fit the supposed age of the narrator and all in all I just came out of this book feeling a bit strange. People could potentially isolate themselves from the real world and cause/worsen serious mental health issues on such advice. There is nothing wrong with that but it just doesn't add up to the narrative on YouTube or instagram we have been getting which left me feeling like I was missing something. I hope that he’s managed to get the help he needs and can continue being his authentic self with his family, who sound lovely.

however Jonathan is not a novelist and his goal is purely to tell his own story as he knows and remembers it and who are we to dictate how you should tell your own story. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I would also like to know if Jonathan has spoken to a therapist about his traumatic childhood with bullying inside and outside the home.Wer Jonathan schon länger folgt, wird besonders gefesselt sein… eine unglaubliche Geschichte von einer anderen Welt, die für ein kleines Kind zum Lebensretter wurde. Joly has struggled with his identity throughout his life and it is admirable that he is communicating these experiences in a carefully curated offer.

As a side note, I do support Jonathan in disagreeing with opinions that he is the driving force behind Edie's brave transition and her continuing to be carefree and confident in who she is. All My Friends Are Invisible even if you do not share these life experiences, thoughts or upbringing is very relatable for the reader. One should not gender everything these days, but the book feels as if it were the confidences of a woman. As a foster carer this book is really useful to me as it gives an insight into the mind of a child who’s subject to a chaotic life of abuse and neglect.Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Jonathan Joly is a non-gender-conforming version of this, so doesn't fit the trope's rarer noted "Manic Pixie Dream Guy" quite either, but rather an eccentric, fun-loving person who meets neither gender binary definition exactly. Because growing up in conservative 1980s Dublin, where there was little tolerance for children who were 'different', Jonathan Joly was, indeed, a different sort of child: creative, expressive, and - on the inside - a girl. Had to take my time reading the early chapters as it was so hard to read about Jonathan's early years, as he was the same age as my daughter is now. Jonathan's invisible friends were his lifeline, and on that day at the airport, they came flooding back, and have remained with him to this day. Joly seems to be talking of very cliché things here, eg doesn't want to play football as it's for boys, and doesn't want to go to a boys school as he gets on with girls better despite having friends and sisters outside of school.
