    I tried to give this the benefit of the doubt because I always want to support books about queer girls, but this was quite possibly my least favorite book of the year The writing was just not great Ugh.

    The only reason I m rating this book a 2 is because it kept me intrigued as to what would happen between Lu and Eve but I could not get past the language in this book I had no idea what time period this was in or what was going on most of the time but I am happy they ended up together in the end

    An okay book, ruined by the fact that the story is told in an incomprehensible author invented slang I honestly had a difficult time understanding it.

    3.5 stars The story was good queer girl drama romance yaaaass , but I found the language and slang difficult to follow at times.

    This is going to be such a weird thing to say, but sometimes, when a book really gets me in the heart, I feel it all the way to my fingertips Like a literal sensation in my hands That happened with this book The writing style won t be for everyone, but I loved it I rarely see young adult novels playing with language this way.

    Happy book birthday and huge thanks to NetGalley and Henry Holt and Co for the advance review copy.Lucy Lu Butler and Eve used to be best friends, that is until Eve got super hot and ditched Lu for the Pretty Pennies of the school After a chance encounter in the girls bathroom senior year during Eve s pregnancy scare, the two slowly start to reconnect, and Lu realizes that her feelings for Eve may bethan platonic In addition to gradation stresses, Lu is facing the potential death o Happy book birthday and huge thanks to NetGalley and Henry Holt and Co for the advance review copy.Lucy Lu Butler and Eve used to be best friends, that is until Eve got super hot and ditched Lu for the Pretty Pennies of the school After a chance encounter in the girls bathroom senior year during Eve s pregnancy scare, the two slowly start to reconnect, and Lu realizes that her feelings for Eve may bethan platonic In addition to gradation stresses, Lu is facing the potential death of a beloved grandparent and conflicting emotions about Eve.The most distinctive thing about this book is its language Lu and her peers have a language all their own that is a cross between 50s, 80s, and modern, teen slang I absolutely loved it I had to take a littletime here and there with a few phrases, but overall, it was easy to understand and gave the book a strong perspective and a great point of view.I was a fan of the characters as well Lu goes through a lot in just a few months, and she grows so much during that time I loved her and Eve s budding relationship, and Lu s BFFs would be great friends to have I definitely recommend this one if you re a fan of contemporary YA No fantasy or sci fi to be had here, just pretty solid characters, normal teenage drama but with a lot of heart The pub date is well timed this is the perfect summer read.This one is out today, so be sure to check it out from your local library or pick up a copy from your fav, local bookseller

    Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.While the book did technically have a plotline mainly the situation with Lu s grandmother and her relationship with Eve the abbreviated pacing made it difficult to become emotionally invested in any of the characters or storylines For example, the intense crush on teacher storyline, which was somewhat uncomfortable, nevertheless disappears entirely after the first third or so, predicting the emotional staying power of the rest of the work However, I wouldn Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.While the book did technically have a plotline mainly the situation with Lu s grandmother and her relationship with Eve the abbreviated pacing made it difficult to become emotionally invested in any of the characters or storylines For example, the intense crush on teacher storyline, which was somewhat uncomfortable, nevertheless disappears entirely after the first third or so, predicting the emotional staying power of the rest of the work However, I wouldn t have necessarily wanted to read anybecause the strange slang made the text distracting and at times unbearable I kept looking for an explanation was the book was taking place in the 1920s or the future but it just seemed to have been a misguided narrative choice I was glad that everyone used it rather than just Lucy, but the use of such odd language made her narration even harder to connect with Overall, this feels like several adult gimmicks stuffed into the skin of a YA work
