I Kissed Shara Wheeler was the primary guide by Casey McQuiston that I learn, and whereas I’ve heard superb issues about their earlier books, I didn’t need to hype myself up an excessive amount of. Sorry to be the bearer of dangerous information however … THIS BOOK DESERVES ALL THE HYPE!!!
The story follows highschool senior Chloe Green, the one overtly queer scholar at her tremendous spiritual, Conservative college in Alabama. She moved there 4 years beforehand together with her mothers, however has massive desires to attend NYU subsequent 12 months. She has the proper grades, the proper plan, and simply must be picked as class valedictorian. The solely subject? Her rival, the proper, Jesus-loving Southern sweetheart, Shara Wheeler.

Sure, they finally discover Shara, however whereas placing all of the items collectively in addition they uncover some shady secrets and techniques the college’s administration has been hiding. That, paired with all of the homophobia and bullying, units these college students over the sting.

Yes, there are a whole lot of deep, necessary, well timed themes explored on this guide, however the writing can also be so FUN that it balances out properly.
I completely cherished this guide. My solely gripe was that on audio, there was one narrator for a forged of characters, which made it tough to maintain monitor of at instances.
I can’t look ahead to extra individuals to choose up this guide and play together with Shara’s recreation and see how this group of teenagers takes over and shakes up their college, and their hometown’s mind-set.
