I was a little worried at first, seemed maybe a little corny. But it quickly turned into a charming coming of age novel.

I loved it!! Listened to the audiobook in one day. I couldn't put it down. Wes' journey of self discovery was beautifully done. Very sweet story. Highly recommended the book/audiobook!!

**Thank you to Anthony Nerada and Netgalley for the ARC**

I have had Skater Boy on my 'Want To Read' list on Goodreads since I heard about it months ago, because who doesn't love a story about a queer punk boy who listens to all the bands I did growing up? When I was able to request the audio book and got it, I was BEYOND stoked and started reading it right away.

I started it on Monday and finished it on Wednesday.

I love this book. I love Wes, I love Tristan, and I love this whole play on the "story" of 'Sk8r Boi' by Avril Lavigne, really playing into the punk boy theme.

I found this story very relatable, enjoyable, and so easy and fun to listen to.

10/10 would read again, 10/10 going to get myself a hard copy of this book.
