REVIEW: Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo - 5 stars

Posted by HelloJennyReviews at 11:00 AM
Title: Last Night at the Telegraph Club
Genre: Young Adult LGBT Historical
Author: Malinda Lo
Seventeen-year-old Lily Hu can’t remember exactly when the question took root, but the answer was in full bloom the moment she and Kathleen Miller walked under the flashing neon sign of a lesbian bar called the Telegraph Club.

America in 1954 is not a safe place for two girls to fall in love, especially not in Chinatown. Red-Scare paranoia threatens everyone, including Chinese Americans like Lily. With deportation looming over her father—despite his hard-won citizenship—Lily and Kath risk everything to let their love see the light of day.
Publisher: Dutton
Publication: January 19th 2021
Cover Rating: 5/5
Reading Format: Owned Hardcover

I really enjoyed this book!! The author did a great job of describing some of the hardships and roadblocks that not only the LGBTQ community faced then, but also Chinese Americans. I really recommend adding this to your list of “summer reads”!
