Academic journal article Centro Journal. Gabby Rivera's Juliet Takes a Breath is the second coming-of-age lesbian novel written by a Puerto Rican in the diaspora. Here, I will establish the links between the novel and the Puerto Rican literary tradition, specifically in its representation of the diasporic experience of Puerto Rican lesbians in the United States. The essay also examines the way in which Juliet's epistemic delinking and decolonial thinking Mignolo enables her to discern the gap between hegemonic notions of queer theory and the exclusion of the Latinx experience as one that informs queer terminology and community life. Similarly, I propose that Juliet Takes a Breath presents, through her interaction with white feminism and the library as sources of "knowledge," the foundation of hidden truths that enable its main character into a journey of personal, but most importantly gender, sexual, racial, and national discovery. A significant development within the Young Adult genre for the Puerto Rican community on the mainland, the novel revolves around Juliet, a teenager who has just finished her first year at a university in Upstate New York and will be undertaking a summer internship in Portland, Oregon, under the wing of fictitious white feminist writer Harlowe Brisbane, who is presented as the author of Raging Flower: Empowering Your Pussy by Empowering Your Mind.
