I read this one for several reading challenges. Catergories where it would fit include:YA book, a book because of its cover, a guilty pleasure, wild card, and a goodreads book of the year nominee.
High school is complicated. Anyone who has gone to highschool or is currently in highschool knows that it isn't the golden years - it's hell. You just have to survive it. This book poignantly makes that point. It's about a girl named Maggie and her best friend Nash Maggie is overweight and Nash is gay They are outsiders looking in, to say the very least.
Then, new guy Tom arrives and both friends find themselves crushing on the same boy. This book is about the value of friendship and what it means to sort out who you are I enjoyed it. I would highly recommend it to anyone currently in highschool or the middle grades, or anyone who enjoys YA.
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
