Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
"I remember a quote in some book...something about straight girls maxing out on excitement when they help promote gay guys. That’s pretty much this book, which seems to be targeted directly to them.

I mean, I have definitely found David Levithan to..." Read more of this review »
Jo and 4 other people liked Amanda's review of One:
One by Sarah Crossan
" One follows the story of sixteen year old ischiopagus tripus conjoined twins, Grace and Tippi. Written in verse, something Crossan excels at, this was told in a beautiful and compelling way. Grace instantly let's us into her world and I immediat..." Read more of this review »

This book sounded fascinating and I thought the idea was interesting and innovative and something I have never read in a YA novel.
But then… eh.
I’ll start with the things I liked. As Clem told the story of his grandma, his mother and father and then

So normally when I dislike a book that is obviously a well-written, unique and great book, I normally say something along the lines of “Oh well, this book obviously wasn’t written for me.’

I’m going to shamelessly steal an idea from this book to describe how I feel about this story.

You know when you’re younger (Or, OK, when you’re not so young if you’re anything like me) and you’re on a set of swings in your back garden? And I’m not ta

I feel it would take quite a bit to make me want to scramble around on Parisian rooftops. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not scared of heights in any way, and the views… well, they’d be pretty incredible, wouldn’t they?
