a gripping read, an atmospheric adventure
A groundbreaking emotional novel
A warm, funny, engaging novel about friendship, family and following your heart.
After fifteen years, Read Me Like a Book is a celebration of how far we've come, and a reminder of how far we have yet to go. It's hilarious, sad, and, at times, an all too real story of first love that transcends sexuality without glossing over the struggles LGBT+ people face in today's world.
compels and intrigues its reader and provides an excellent, enjoyable read along the way. A must-read
Honestly. I loved this story.
In this coming of age story with a twist, Liz Kessler bravely and honestly navigates the mind of a teen who is discovering her sexuality - and simultaneously learning to be true to herself. An important contribution to the YA literary canon and a welcome reminder that love is love, no matter what.
It is a delightful, well told story that will no doubt broaden horizons, inform and facilitate discussions.
This really is a brilliant book and definitely one that all teenagers should read. If you know any child who is struggling with their sexuality, this book would be an ideal read for them. The YA genre welcomes this book gladly to its fold. This book shows that when you fall in love, gender doesn't really matter.
Naturally, I would recommend this book to anybody who loves YA fiction, but especially to those between the ages of 15 and 18.
Coming out is part of her story, not her entire story -- a powerful message for teens who may view sexuality as the defining part of a person. Kessler's sensitivity and control over the plot is a thing of beauty ... a must-have on all LGBT lists
