Received advanced reader copy from publisher via Baker Taylor book supplierI gave this one 114 pages before I rolled my eyes for the final time and put it aside as a “did not finish” It was because there were 5 star Goodreads reviews and the intriguing storyline that I gave it than my usual 50 pages But the story did not flow interview segments were so choppy I felt like details were popping out of nowhere did we know Jenny played tennis before the Tennis Mafia comment If we were told it didn’t stick and I was so sick of reading about the food being eaten this had NOTHING TO DO WITH THE STORY I don’t care if they were eating takeout pulling a pizza from the freezer etcAlso of note the publisher included a note in the ARC not unusual and explained that they were introducing a YA publishing line and would be focusing on cover art and marketing And this was the cover they came up with A cover that invokes a same sex relationship Or at the very least close sibling When they couldn’t stand each other Nope Just nope And for me to get annoyed at a cover selection That is big I will fall in love with covers yes And covers definitely draw my attention when I’m shoppingroaming the library But to criticize a cover Not sure I’ve ever done that before No finished date included because I did not want this to count toward my Goodreads challenge
