The main character has disordered eating habits for most of the book. When he goes into a depressive episode he loses his appetite. Towards the end of the book, his eating becomes extremely disordered. He realizes not eating makes him hallucinate a dead loved one, so he starves himself to see him

Most of the characters are LGBT and a lot of them survive. Their deaths aren't related to their sexualities and it doesn't fall under the "bury your gays" troppe

One of the main characters (Jude) is disabled. The ableist behaviour/language is rarely shown until Jude begins dating Caleb. Caleb does not like that Jude is disabled and forces him to not his wheelchair when he's in pain. He disregards Jude's chronic pain and health issues, "telling him to suck it up and get over it". Caleb is one the antagonist in the book, his actions towards Jude aren't frowned upon by the narration
