Blurb: Juliet represents the road less traveled. Will Lena take it?
Lena Newman is 17, her best friend’s a cheerleader, her boyfriend’s a football player, and as far as everyone is concerned, her life is sorted. But that’s before she befriends the new girl. Juliet is confident, slightly damaged, drop-dead gorgeous and a lesbian.
Lena realizes that her interest goes beyond just friendship. She sets off on a path of self-discovery where the loyalty of those closest to her will be tested.
Review: I’ll admit that when I first started reading this, I complained a little about special snowflakes, I mean there’s even a special snowflake table. Really? Anyways, after I got passed that, which didn’t take very long, it was so cute it was disgusting.
The pace is pretty good for the story, this cover is absolutely beautiful and the detail is good enough that I could see the characters in my head.
I will admit that the characters weren’t very developed, they did seem a little one dimensional but that’s alright with me because I did feel a connection after the special snowflake thing. I felt a connection with the main characters, kind of wish that the friends had more screen time but I am happy with the way the book came out.
I don’t know about teenagers nowadays but even I can relate to this book and I’m 24, though not with the main plot because I’m not in that situation. I remember that’s how my friends talked to each other.
I’m also a HUGE fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas so I could really relate to Juliet in that area.
I feel like this would be a good book for anyone, especially teens though, who are trying to figure themselves out, whether it be bisexual, asexual, etc. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you for reading my review.
