Hello Followed With Us is the story of Benji, a transgender boy trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world created by a fanatic religious group that feels superior to rule the world. Throughout the novel, Benji survives traumatizing events of monstrous deaths, until he is “rescued” by a group of diverse teens, who are also trying to survive.
Andre Joseph White delivers a dark and strange novel around religion, fanaticism, and the terrifying image of angels. Monsters without shape, multiple eyes, and wings. White plays with the juxtaposition of those monstrous beings to the real-life angels: diverse youth. White creates ALC: a strong and diverse community in matters of gender identity, sexual orientations, pronouns, mental illness, and personalities. White against all prejudice and rejection created a novel needed for a community that needs to be represented.
A story packed with action scenes full of gore and explicit descriptions of bodies blowing up and monsters crying to help. A rhapsody of pain and revenge plagued the novel; however, the reader will not miss the villain: a cult, a group of prejudiced people that want to see the world burn but that mainly won’t recognize your identity and will not respect your being nor pronouns.
While reading the novel, I was not sure what made this novel fall into the horror genre: the monsters based on the Bible and the gore of the events; or the horrible prejudice of the characters who rejected the main character’s identity.
In a display of hatred, rage, and love for one’s life, the novel flashes hot as an inferno burning the real sin of the world. Together in a fight for equality, Benji reaffirms who he is, who he has become, and how to change the world.
