Adjusting to life after high school is tricky enough as it is. Add to that a stagnated vlogging career and a hunger for attention and things get complicated for eighteen-year-old Carr Lark, whose enjoyment of his freshman year in university has so far been tainted not only by malaise but also constant antagonism with his former classmate Kit Lee.

Though antagonism might be

This is the first book I'm reviewing and I'm doing it because this book ???? Is so. SO Amazing™.

Like, I've been a fan of this author for some time now, since they used to write fanfiction, and one of the things I've always admired the most in their stories is their writing style in itself. I don't even quite know how to explain it... How they manage to make the mundane feel so special and yet till simple, how they make their dialogues feel so real, and the themes they explore touch so deeply. I

I am right in the middle of Midterm Hell right now, so I knew I wouldn't have time to read. Just one chapter, I told myself. Just one chapter, to see what this is about. What a fool I was!
I DEVOURED this book. It's been such a long time since I was sucked into a book like this, but boy, oh boy, I could not put it down.

This is the kind of content I want to get from fiction. I wish there were more books like this. I wish there were too many to choose from. How wonderfully complex these characters

This is a really well written book with A LOT of dialogue. I was sucked in right away but the constant conversations were hard to follow at first, it took awhile to get into the rhythm of Nikole’s unique writing style. I felt very young reading this, it was refreshing. I didn't realize Nikole got her start writing fanfiction till after finishing Carr, but I wasn't surprised. As a former giant fanfiction nerd, I recognize the blend of styles and descriptive characters that all the best fanfiction ...more

I honestly didn't have any expectations for this book when I started it. And I definitely didn't expect to fall in love with it 3 pages in. It hooked me from the start and I honestly didn't put it down until I got to the very last page.

Both Carr and Kit are very relatable, with problems and personalities that I see in myself often enough (and a special shout out to Eli who makes me being late to work everyday #valid). I was rooting for them every step of the way.

Also the writing is stupidly funn

Carr is your typical young adult making his way through the digital age, lost in the vast possibilities that today's youth is being bombarded with, but mostly lost with himself until he makes an unlikely deal with his greatest rival that changes everything. What seems to be the most remarkable attribute of this novel is how seamless their love transitions and grows; it doesn't simply feel like a good LGBTQ romance, it's a noteworthy romantic story period. While there were some noticable grammati ...more

Carr (Growing Pains) is a story about a young man, Carr, who is trying to find his place in the world as his struggles through his first year in university. It provides a fresh insight into the challenges that face young people today, not only in school, but also in relationships and how they are influenced by the omnipresent internet world. Although I have not experienced many of the things Carr has gone through, I found this story extremely relatable. The unique writing style and realistic dia ...more
