Jesper's struggle with addiction is so?? important???? we barely see any characters with substance abuse problems in YA and in the world of soc that's something that you'd 100% realistically encounter. His attitude towards it, his resolve, his admitting how ridiculously /hard/ that resolve is to maintain and it being shown not as personal weakness but like a disease is. (???) important.
all of this exactly. i couldn’t agree more ❤❤
at this point idk if my love is greater for jesper as a character, or leigh for giving us this amazing, fleshed out character and all the representation he embodies
