I would like to read more of this author because there's a lot of clever-funny going on here. But I am mystified by the decision to write this in 3rd person when the narrative screams 1st. ( )

Norris moves with his mom from Montreal to Austin, Texas and must try to survive the heat, the separation from his best friend, and most of all, navigating the Typical Texas Teenagers in his new school. It doesn't help that he's a black French Canadian or that his mouth is sometimes faster than his sense of tact.
Part YA sweet romance, part coming-of-age, part #ownvoices narrative of a black teen in the modern-day South. I enjoyed this one immensely and think it definitely deserves this year's Morris Award. The characters were very well drawn: complex in their motivations and wants/needs and all easy to empathize with and root for and love. And although that too-precocious-for-a-teen element was present in the writing, it wasn't as bothersome as it is in other YA authors. ( )

I read this novel at the request of a friend. She wanted an opinion on finding something to engage her teenager in the current news-media dialogue on racism. This book isn’t a good choice because it is more about a middle-school kid (Norris) trying to fit in at a new high school. Beyond that, the fact he is black, French-Canadian does not come across as the source of the drama that pervades this novel.

In fact, there was too much high-school drama which didn’t convey an authentic situation. I was disappointed at the amount of stereotyping (jocks, cheer leaders, an introductory school counsellor). I’ve read a number of YA novels in the contemporary fiction genre and this one fell flat. Too busy being snarky and sarcastic, Norris didn’t come across as a realistic teen voice. ( )

I can't remember the last time I laughed out loud so much while reading a book! I loved Norris' brand of sarcastic humor, and he's not afraid to direct it at himself either. He's so snarky and I just loved his entire demeanor - unlikable, but real... which made him likeable and relatable. Even his situation with this parents was relatable. I definitely felt that.

What I liked about the romance element of the book is how authentic it was, angst and all. Oh, and I don't want to spoil much, but the twist that was pulled... definitely saw it coming, and I was rooting for it too! I also have to say that I love the way the book ended, leaving an open door with major possibility. ( )

A cure to the genre's constant line-up of insufferable, self-involved, I'm-mean-but-it's-cute-when-I-do-it protagonists in contemporary YA. Norris is one of them - he thinks he's funnier than he is and is actually just...a bully. But everyone around him is infinitely more complex, charming, and interesting than he is and he's tasked with owning up to how he's just unable to take a long look in the mirror.

This was super satisfying to me...my main gripe with contemporary is that it hardly makes sense why people are always fawning over MC when they're usually really grim, judgy, and unkind, and that shit doesn't fly IRL. Norris gets in with the cool characters because he's funny, and is pretty quickly tasked with owning up to his bad attitude.

Only real disappointment was in the end...: Norris was seriously cruel to Madison. I appreciate the idea that life ain't over and there's always time for reparations, but it leaves off with this gross tone of "haha I'll just bother you, follow you at work, until you love me again lol" why we gotta do the thing ( )
