Ing that going to an adult or help is just going to make matters worse so you re best off keeping silent and I don t think that s a helpful message to giveI have to give Kate Scelsa kudos or having such a diverse cast of characters though and she really does touch on some difficult issues We get some interesting insights into drug addiction living in oster care coping with mental health issues coming The Seduction of Miranda Prosper from a mixed raceamily having two gay parents and even uestioning your own sexuality and I definitely enjoyed that about the story Unfortunately the rest of the story The Warrior Princess of Pennyroyal Academy felllat and it didn t really eel like any of them had achieved much by the end of the book I was hoping to see them grow up and become comfortable in their own skins but I was left eeling that they were right back where they started only this time they had become codependent on each other or their survivalThoughts before reading The story of a girl her gay best riend and the boy who alls in love with both of them It only took one line of that blurb now I HAVE to read this Nope Not A Fan I Liked a an I liked of the characters but I just really I mean REALLY disliked the writing style On top of being dull it elt disjointed and awkward Also there are three different POV s and three different tenses of writing or each uh no Unfortunately this just wasn t the book Theres Always a Trail / Home in the Valley for me Sooo many emotions right now humans SO MANY EMOTIONS I thought this was going to be a solid 5 star read but there just aew niggling details that I wasn t okay with so it s basically a 45 star read and it s STUPENDOUS and I loved it and wow I m not a very emotional reader gah I know It s a ailing But I elt totally caught up in this book It glued itself to my soul IT JUST DID I wanted to laugh and cry and maybe break a brick wall and definitely craved pizza I am a an of this book har har did you get it DID YOU Okaynever mindHow do I even sum up its beautifulness It s about three kids Jeremy Mira and Sebby and They Each Narrate A each narrate a but all in a different style Jeremy is in 1st person Mira is in 3rd and Sebby who doesn t have a lot of chapters is in 2nd person IT WAS INCREDIBLE I ve never read a book that used all 3 before and it lowed and I m such a The Everyman Book of Nonsense Verse fan I swear I ll stop sayingan soon exceptmaybe I won t because PUN HAAnd we gotta talk about these characters I loved them ALL They were all sodimensional Like they elt real and I elt so so connected I just

Kate Scelsa Ê 5 ReadSo much love The Essential Library for New Moms 4-Book Bundle: Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child; The Baby Food Bible; Infant Massage; Colic Solved for this book Drag ueens mental illness some seriously witty dialogue a PoC lead and ueer characters galore this book is a must But what I love most about Fans is that it isn t afraid to turn brutal and to thrust its characters especially Sebby into a harsh light I wentrom laughing out loud on an airplane in the beginning of the novel to hurting or all of the characters by the end Side note I m really conflicted about something that happened in That Scene Toward The End and the way the something was or in this case wasn t dealt with Would love to privately hear someone s thoughts about itBut really Fans is excellent I had such high hopes or Fans of the Impossible Life the tag line The story of a girl her gay best riend and the boy who alls in love with both of them caught my attention the moment I saw it and I was expecting some kind of epic bisexual love triangle or possibly even a relationship that developed between all three main characters I m not usually a an of love triangles but I would definitely put my irritation to one side or a story like that Unfortunately that isn t what this story is about so I ended up eeling disappointed I don t this story is about so I ended up eeling incredibly disappointed don t that s necessarily the author s
fault but whoever was in charge of writing that marketing tag line definitely did the book a disservicebut whoever was in charge of writing that marketing tag line definitely did the book a disservice if you go into it without that same expectation you ll end up enjoying the story much than I didThis book is told rom three different points of view which should really allow us to get to know all of the main characters but The Alvin Ho Super Collection: Books 1-4 for some reason I never really connected with any of them The POVs of Mira and Jeremy weren t too bad but the way Sebby s sections were written was completely jarring and the left meeeling completely disconnected کاروان امید from anything that happened to him His POV should have been the one that moved me most he was really going through some very tough times but Ielt so distanced کاروان امید: سرگذشت تری فاکس from him that I didn t even come to like him that much and I struggled to see why both Mira and Jeremy were so drawn to him He was supposed to be the brightest character someone they both adored but I just didn teel itI didn t really believe in the romance either which was incredibly disappointing The most realistic relationship was the The Cat Who Sang for the Birds (Cat Who... friendship that developed between Mira and Jeremy I reallyelt like they cared about each other and were there Tempting Faith Di Napoli for each other but I didn teel any chemistry or romantic love between them Sebby was a bit too distant and the way he kept so many secrets and held the others at arms length just didn t work or me There was also one particular scene between the three of them possibly the scene that was inspiration or the tag line that made me The Southern Belles of Honeysuckle Way feel really uncomfortable it never uiteelt that all three of them were on board with what was happening and it seemed like their actions sprung rom too much alcohol rather than any real desire they elt I was also uncomfortable about the actions of a certain teacher he doesn t exactly do anything wrong but he definitely oversteps boundaries and I was extremely upset by the way things played out when they turned to him The Confident Woman: How to Take Charge and Recharge Your Life for help with a major problem they were having Itelt a bit like it was sending a message to teenagers say.

Life and colour and glitter He gay and a oster kid and has had a tortured past too JEREMY I got worried when we were introduced to Jeremy because he sshy Don t get me wrong I LOVE SHY I am shy But so often I eel like shy characters get ixed and turned into party animals in order to have a good life Bah humbug ANYWAY JEREMY WASN T LIKE THAT Thank the bookish heavens He did come out of his shell a bit but he stayed uiet Proof that you can have riends and a life and still be that you can have riends and a life and still be Also he s an artist and has been through A Big Traumatic Thing Basically I related to Jeremy a lot SHY PEOPLE UNITE Umindividually Probably online Maybe never WhateverI loved the character development and I think it was just so real And THESE THREE KINDA BROKE MY HEART SEVERAL TIMES They definitely go down as some of my The Way of Women favourite characterriendships of everAlthooooough There is romance And I confess I m not into three way romances I guess it s like a triangle But where each part of the triangle is kissing the other partso a REAL triangle But yeah I mean they re teens they re uestioning and I think it was written well BUT I m just not a an omg kill me before I say that word again of itAlso while I m being a gloom cloud let me do a uick list of what bothered me And the reason it slightly missed out on the 5 stars So Mira has chronic atigue at the beginning and thenboom It just goes missing Like it literally disappears NOT OKAY Just because your life is going well doesn t mean your illnesses will
