I'm always excited by a book depicting religious, liberal teens active in youth groups since that was me. Even better is the thoughtful way Stevens shows Billie's questioning of just who she is and what she wants - particularly around her sexuality. The strong friendships were great, although not all equally shown. I'm not quite sold on the ending - maybe a little too deus ex machina for me? Very, very good overall and I definitely enjoyed it.

I'm late with my #bookreport - it wasn't my best week ever in general, but reading went ok. Finished Dress Codes for Small Towns and A Very Large Expanse of Sea. Enjoyed them both, but actually switched up my next e-read to be Furyborn instead of Here to Stay because it felt like too much realistic fiction in a row. Still working on What If It's Us and The Gilded Wolves. Just barely started Internment on audio in the car. @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Great week👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼finishing 2 books is wonderful 😄 1mo

The #weeklyforecast has some distinct similarities to last week's, but with new things on deck.
Current reads:
Car audio: A Very Large Expanse of Sea
House audio: What If It's Us
E-read: Dress Codes for Small Towns
Print: The Gilded Wolves

On deck:
Next car audio: Internment
Next E-read: Here to Stay

If I finish either of the others I will pick something to follow them when I do. Here's hoping for a little more reading time this week!
@cinfhen

Cinfhen You‘re right on track 🚆well done ✅ I‘m trying to stay on track too and not get #SideSwiped 😆 1mo

Read for #TheBreakfastBookClub #GroupA so I won‘t say much here because there are still people left in the rotation who need to read it.

To sum it up- I had never heard of this one but have since heard the author‘s name tossed around quite a bit. I think I will read more of her despite the fact I sometimes found it difficult to get into this story.

StephanieGeiser @whatsthEStorey - Sorry for the slight delay! This headed out on its journey to you first thing this morning. 😊 6mo

Interesting story and setting with great characters and relationships. The characters felt so real. Has a sort of Footloose-esqe feel to the town the main character lives in. Would love a good adaptation of this. The ending (before the epilogue) made me tear up.

4.5 ⭐

Simply put: be true to yourself. A perfect book for anyone struggling with identity. And, I think I want Billie‘s boots! I laughed. I cried. And, I rooted for Billie the whole time. #TheBreakfastBookClub #GroupA

Let me just tell you about small towns... 😉
Loved this book! Billie is really looking into herself to figure out who the hell she is. I love that she‘s exploring her friendships, her love life (so many options!), her role in town, and her relationship with her preacher father.
I‘m super happy this was my current #thebreakfastbookclub #groupA pick!

I liked this overall & am glad it's out there for kids who will see themselves and their identity questions represented. And I do love YA books set in small towns. Funny at times, and sharp at others. But the very intentionally clever writing style got a little tired after a while, and sometimes my old ass was just like, what teens talk like this? 👵🏻 3/5 ⭐️ (Would be 3.5 if Goodreads didn't act like giving us half stars was akin to cold fusion)

I finished this one last night but figured I already posted too much for one day, so I saved it for today!
This one was recommended to me by librarian when I asked for suggestions of books with themes similar to The Outsiders. I really enjoyed this book. It is the story of a girl trying to figure out who she is or how she fits when she so clearly stands out. A must-read for my teens and anyone else who enjoys a more modern “coming of age” story.

Reviewsbylola I love your bullet bookshelf! 2y
JaclynW I've never heard of this book! This sounds perfect for my daughter. Thanks! 2y

So I pulled a back muscle yesterday while working in the garden, and it has left me practically immobile today. Thankfully this sweet girl hasn‘t left my side much while I read this delightful “coming of age” story recommended by my awesome librarian. Thank goodness for fur babies (since my human baby spent the day playing outside despite the rain). #DogsofLitsy #MikkaGirl
