Press Reviews

  • Jared Boot, MA, MBA, CST

    This book is a much-needed resource! Ace/aro individuals have unique identity development processes and often struggle with integrating their identities. Many of my clients would have benefited from this resource, and I am confident that future individuals will benefit from the quotes and information provided in this book. Research indicates that common language and a sense of community are two of the most critical factors for ace/aro individuals' well-being; this book can help facilitate both!
  • Julie Sondra Decker, author of The Invisible Orientation

    Inclusive and emotionally resonant, Ace and Aro Journeys offers an authentic look at asexual and aromantic identity from every imaginable angle. It's written by people who have lived these specific trials and triumphs, with relatable examples and quotes from diverse ace- and aro-spectrum people, dispensing wisdom regarding processing negativity as well as celebrating ace/aro joy. Aces and aros will see their identities thoroughly explored and validated beyond the usual token statement of "this exists," while those who want to learn about us will learn how to conceptualize us as we are, not as people with something missing.
  • Elizabeth Brake, Professor of Philosophy, Rice University, author of Minimizing Marriage

    A valuable resource for anyone curious about asexuality and aromanticism, anyone wondering whether they might be ace or aro, or anyone wanting to support an ace or aro friend or family member. This book provides clear and helpful practical advice for coming out and connecting to a larger community, as well as recognition of the particular struggles ace and aro people face, with insights into the history, culture, and vocabulary of these orientations. This is also a book to get you started thinking about larger philosophical questions regarding the nature of orientation, desire, attraction, and sexual identity. I highly recommend for anyone questioning their orientation or wanting to be an ally.
