The only thing that irritated me was the near cliffhanger at the end! Okay, so what happened next!?
I am absolutely delighted about the decision of the author to include a mysterious disabled character. I think it is something out-of-the box and shows that these people do deserve to be included in our lives - both real and fictional. Can't wait to find out Ray's dark secret!
New Kid is jam-packed with drama (what teenage life isn’t?) surrounding family, friendships, and of course, high school. It surrounds the lives of Liv, Jude, and Kat, three best friends who bring their own unique flare to the story. Their dialogue was by far one of my favorite elements of the story and will leave you laughing out loud at times, grinning from ear to ear, or perhaps even reminding you of the sometimes ridiculous conversations you had with your own best friend(s) in high school. (I’m aloud to say that considering I’ve been out of high school for x amount of years.)
If you’re out of high school, it’s hard to forget the hesitation surrounding the murky waters that is, “I like him….but does he like me?” When feelings of friendship turn into something more, but you’re unsure if the feeling is mutual, New Kid handles the topic beautiful and I can only imagine that it’ll be expanded upon in the sequel, which I am thrilled to be starting shortly! Despite it being a fun read, there were some also rather serious elements to the story, which contributed to its real-ness and the readers ability to relate. Topics such as, the death of a parent, bullying, sexual exploration (without being explicit), and the struggle of self-image primarily dealt with in teen girls. As an adult, well out of her high school (and college…cough, cough) years, I still found this book to be relatable and one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I truly did remind me of 10 Things I Hate About You, as well as one of my favorite British movies, The Bad Mother’s Handbook.
I loved the characters of Liv, Jude, and Kat. They struck me as very realistic--the sort of girls I would have known when I was in high school. (I related most to Liv.) I loved their conversations and sometimes found myself laughing out loud. I wished I could go back in time and hang out with them!
Although this was a fun book, it dealt with some serious issues. I loved that it tackled things like bullying and sex in teens without being heavy-handed about it--very difficult to do!
I'm a huge fan of YA fiction and I love a YA book that can be appreciated by adults too. This definitely falls into that category! Wonderful book!
