I suspect I will be in a minority of readers who come to A Scatter of Light as their first Malinda Lo novel. It is a companion to the author’s New York Times bestselling Last Night at the Telegraph Club. Unlike that one, this novel is not historical but rather modern (it’s set in 2008, 2013, and even an epilogue set in the future), and those years felt more there to show passing, rather than the dates necessarily being vital for the story. From what I can glean from reviews of her other novels though, it has a similar tenderness and softness in its telling of first love.

I’m always going to be a fan of love stories involving cute androgynous queers, and this one features the sexy Steph, a gardener and handy person who acts as our heroine Aria’s queer awakening.

Trying to avoid any spoilers so I’ll keep it vague but the novel doesn’t have the cliché or predictable easy ending that you might expect if you were thinking of it as a romance novel. Instead it’s a more mature coming-of-age story, showing the characters’ personal growth and different futures for themselves.
