bookshelves: contemporary, young-adult, read-2019

This was both heartwarming and goofy, so if you want to sniffle and giggle...this book is for you.😌It's most wholesomely about friendship: Josie and Delia are BFFs and like, the really tight kind who are on the same wave-length and are so close they practically share a brain. I honestly don't read enough YA books with dedicated female-friendships that don't turn catty, so this?? This was GOOD for that. It also had a super cute romance for Josie that I just. 😍Lawson was like this super Hufflepuff soft loving wholesome attack dog. Look, what I'm saying here is HE IS ADORABLE and he and Josie = the best.

A+ friendships, A+ wholesome romances. A+ dialogue. I seriously died at how funny and epically flowing the dialogue was.

It definitely was...goofy though. Like it's not going to gut-punch you at all. I admit I did adore The Serpent King like nothing else for being so wholly feels wrenching. It just got so bizarre at the end and I don't really click with people doing crappy TV etc as an art form. (I also barely watch TV shh. I'm sorry. There are too many books to read.)

message 1: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra Lovely review! I read the first fifty pages or so of this but the goofy-ness wasn’t really meshing with me. :/ Is it worth giving it a second shot and plowing through? I also adored The Serpent King so I feel like I owe it to Jeff Zentner...

I think we just have to go in not expecting another Serpent King? It gets really quite bizarre at the end here. And like it was funny? But I prefer drama to comedy I guess (I mean I LIKE laughing in contemporaries, but I like humour amongst a series plot. if that makes sense.)
