My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
Nick is 18, gay, has just graduated high school and is college bound after the summer. He spends his days bored in his summer office job for a construction company, stapling things together and writing bad poetry about one of the construction workers beautiful backside.
Jai is 25, bi and has restless feet. He spends every summer working in his small hometown and then the rest of the year travelling the world. He is aware of the geeky temp with a major crush on him, but nothing else, until said geeky temp blows him in a porta-potty and ends up getting them both fired.
Nick is adorable and hilarious in his scatterbrained own way. He goes off on one tangent after another, angsting over the future in the way only a teenager can. Jai’s more mature with his 25 years, but not so much that you don’t believe the relationship between the two.
And lastly I must give a special shout out to Devon, Nicks best friend and the very best bro anyone could have ever asked for. Everyone should have a Devon. I would read his story, whether it is with Ebony or another girl.
To summarise: I loved this! The characters were great, even the secondary ones. I would recommend it to everyone who has ever been a teenager, so basically… everyone. It’s brilliant, adorable, hilarious and so freaking cute you want to hug it. I already know it will be a favourite re-read, and should I be so lucky that it will be released on audio, I will be first in line to buy it.
Adulating 101 will be released on August 15th 2016.
