TraitBut let s talk about the plot Or lack thereof I guessPLOTThis section should probably just be blank because there s no plot I could discern Nothing EVER HAPPENS It s just Molly whining about boys Over And ver And Making Women Pay over again If something happens it s filtered through the Boy uest and turns into fifty pagesf crush analysis UghhhhhhI just hated being inside Molly s head She s so boring A bunch GloomCookie of times people called her funny and those were thenly instances I laughed at this book She is not funny She is a snoozefest personified And I know that she loves to whine and pity herself why else would she do just that instead f solving her problems by I don t know talking to her sister r friend The Jesuit or crush Fck I m just so glad I m done this bookSOCIAL ISSUESThis book justkeeps trying really hard to hit the nailn the head with social issues and it justcan t get there It s kind With Bound Hands of upsetting actually But when I make sweeping claims I ll always hit y all with that fresh evidence Here s the first I recorded from page forty fiveAfter a loooong boring conversation in which Molly s cousin Abby whines about whether she s a slutr not after having sex with the boy with whom she s in a committed relationship Molly hits us with the following gag worthy interpretation Rim of the Pit of what the word slut should mean in the facef feminism Here s what I would never ever admit You Can Beat the Odds out loud a partf me always thought it was some kind f a secret compliment when someone got called a slut It meant you were having sex It meant people wanted to have sex with you Being a slut just meant you were normal But I think maybe I m wrong about that Maybe I m so wrong Ugh See what I mean The author is trying sooo hard But she s not even close The feminist way to treat the word slut is to be against slut shaming That s it it s pretty simple There are a million fun videos and TV episodes you can look into But this passage essentially like validates slut shaming Do what you want ladies Have sex r don t as much Stripes of All Types or as little as you want Who flipping cares It s your life See Albertalli It s not hard Feminism is mostly about trying to free women from the rest I liked this book It s been my bathroom book if you know what I mean DO you know what I mean I mean I keep it in my bathroom so when Iyou kn I loooooved this I found it to be so relatable and just amazing Stayed tuned for a reviewdiscussion to hear thoughts I have a fierce love for this book Molly has such a winning voice and winning heart and yup Becky remainsne f my favorite authors ever Just reread as an audiobook and it s amazing I can t decide if this is funny r sad but I ve spent so much time wanting a boyfriend that I can t imagine not wanting ne I can imagine saying I don t want ne But I can t imagine it being true I m really surprised to see so many positive reviews Baltimore Catechism No. 2 of The Upsidef Unreuited from GR members who thought Holding Up the Universe was problematic To me this is Mic manual de campanie electorală of the same This might be the author who brought us the wonderful and hilarious Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda but these characters contained nonef the charm that Simon Co possessedTo summarize why I didn t like this book in two points1 I felt absolutely no connection to any The Big Book of Maker Skills: Tools Techniques for Building Great Tech Projects of the characters It seemed like the author put a lotf effort into creating a diverse cast which is great and yet she forgot to develop their personality charms and uirks so that they became defined by their marginalizationMolly is the most well developed character and even that is not saying much Who is Molly What are her passions and interests What does she care about aside from bsessing ver her crushes and the fact she hasn t been kissed I couldn t tell you2 There isn t a compelling storyIn fact it s the same One Life, One Incarnation: Beautiful Bones old story I have never liked an insecure plainoverweight virgin longs to finally be kissed by a boy Everyone else around her is cuter hot and she feels inadeuate She finally finds her worth when it turns Just Joking out that a boy likes her I don t know if this kindf book is supposed to be empowering for bigger girls but it felt insulting The protagonist Molly is a self proclaimed fat girl who always has crushes but never dates andor kisses guys because she fears rejection The story arc follows her journey to gaining self confidence which here ccurs when her latest crush reciprocates her feelings Is this a good message Because honestly it makes me cringe It s so many things It s everyone knowing you re attracted to a guy who wears electric white sneakers It s that little twinge f shame you feel when someone thinks he s not cute Even though he is cute He s actually really fucking adorable I actually really fucking like him and none Times of Trouble (A Time Travel Anthology) of thether stuff should matter I will say that the book has a lot f diversity skin color sexuality gender identity religion body size mental health but you don t get brownie points r a pat n the back for this any Diversity is just a necessity not something a book should win an award for Beyond this the story and characters were extremely lacking for me Molly s inner narrative went in tiring circles as she thought about herself kissing boys and back again My ego I don t have an ego If I had such a giant ego why would I have such a hard time believing Reid actually likes meExcept if I m totally honest I do believe it Reid likes me And I like that he likes me But I m not used to this game It s this totally new way f seeing myself Like I m some hazily lit dream girl from a movie I ve never been that girl beforeI really like being that girl So maybe I am some kind f egomaniac I liked Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda so much that I will happily check ut the author s future work but this The Real Bluebeard: The Life of Gilles de Rais onebviously did not work for meBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtub. Ght be perfect crush material Maybe than crush material And if Molly can win him Stay on Your Toes, Maggie Adams! over she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back There’snly ne problem Molly’s coworker Reid He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him Righ.
