Jag läste den svenska översättningen som inte alla har ett lika snyggt omslag. Dock en väldigt bra bok med en huvudperson som har ett lite annorlunda sätt att se världen.

Phoebe is cynical beyond her years, but I think that's what makes the romance bit so sweet when it does happen. Loved her friendships in the charity shop and lots of funny lines.

I really enjoyed this book. The book was told in a great diary type format which I always enjoy. I love a book with a flawed and honest narrator as well.
This book really had it all. A sarcastic narrator, a queer romance, a thrift shop romance, and so many cats! This book is so much fun but it also takes on series subjects like greaf and abandonment.
I really hope to see more from Brueggermann in the same vain as this book. I also can't wait to get my hands on the physical copy of this book. I mean just look at how great the cover is!

I typically don't love books that talk about sex as much as this one did, but this is the first time I have read a YA novel that does so in a way that actually felt realistic. I found the characters in this book incredibly believable and I loved the way the author addressed topics like grief, disability and sexuality so simply and effectively.

This is a cute love story, featuring a very authentic modern teenager.

Written in diary format, this covers an eventful six months in Phoebe's life. At first, given some of the things she says and thinks, I thought we were heading for a realisation of asexuality. However, she's just a nervous teen with a crush.

The writing style is light and fun. Although I don't agree with everything Phoebe did, her reasons are always clear and she's always consistent. The ending made me wonder if there might be another book planned for this series - I hope so! I'd love to read more of these characters.

All in all a great read, one I heartily recommend.
