Otherbound - YA Fantasy with a Bi Main Character

Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis

Amara is never alone. Not when she’s protecting the cursed princess she unwillingly serves. Not when they’re fleeing across dunes and islands and seas to stay alive. Not when she’s punished, ordered around, or neglected.

She can’t be alone, because a boy from another world experiences all that alongside her, looking through her eyes.

Nolan longs for a life uninterrupted. Every time he blinks, he’s yanked from his Arizona town into Amara’s mind, a world away, which makes even simple things like hobbies and homework impossible. He’s spent years as a powerless observer of Amara’s life. Amara has no idea . . . until he learns to control her, and they communicate for the first time. Amara is terrified. Then, she’s furious.

All Amara and Nolan want is to be free of each other. But Nolan’s breakthrough has dangerous consequences. Now, they’ll have to work together to survive—and discover the truth about their connection.

I highly, HIGHLY recommend this book. It is one of those books that stays with you for a long time. What is great is the story in itself - compelling, surprising, and exciting! The ending had a great twist and though it's a YA book it's not at all predictable. One of the main characters is bisexual but the story is not a journey of self-discovery. There is a bit of gore and sexual content, that is why I would only recommend for kids twelve years or older. Overall, a great book!
