I’m feeling lazy tonight, so this will be in the form of pros and cons.
- It’s quite amusing
- I like Jessie’s relationship with her family, especially Barrett
- It’s about a girl embracing her inner nerd
- There were points when I felt that Jessie was being blind and/or hypocritical and I couldn’t tell whether we were meant to trust her or see her as a slightly unreliable narrator
- For a book which shows the journey of a girl accepting her inner nerd, it’s awfully hard on said group
This is somewhere between a con and an eh for me, but there’s some fairly frank mentions and discussion of sex. I didn’t particularly mind it, but I was a little taken aback by it, or something.
