Perfectly Good White Boy by Carrie Mesrobian

Perfectly Good White Boy - Carrie Mesrobian

Ahhhhhhhhh. Much as I hate saying stupid phrases like this, Carrie Mesrobian's writing is like a breath of fresh ass. I love that she doesn't shy away from writing sex. Cos PGWB has it, and lots of it.


I don't why some readers get their PANTIES all in a twist about sex in YA. Hello, this is TEENAGERS we're talking about. Especially teenage boys. I'm generalising a little here, but if they're not doing it, they're either thinking about it, talking about it or watching porn. Therefore, it makes sense to make it a part of their story, surely?


I also like that she doesn't make her books all about the boy getting with the girl in the end and living happily ever after. I've somewhat come to expect that with the books that I read these days, you know? So different is good. 


BookLikes, I like you. I like that you allow me to post my thoughts without making it a review. I'm not really good at reviews. I really just want to babble on like this, be more conversational, you know?


Anyhoo. Read this book, everyone. It's a coming of age story, I feel - told in a funny, different and awesomely REFRESHING way.
