Asher was extremely chill, caring, and hot. He struggles with his somewhat friendship and the guy code.
Teddy was a live every moment to the fullest chic. She knew that every moment of her life is precious due to her illness and she doesn't want to be completely alone.
Teddy's friend does come off as a jerk, but these characters are young and he is in a stage in his life where he is trying to literally find himself, though he maybe finds out too late that he is completely being an ass.
Overall, great read and I would love to have a chance to read book two.
It was a good story. It's a short and quick read with a cliffhanger. I think the racial diversity was well done. The characters come to life and they deal with real life issues. Excellent read.
Once I got past that, I was able to enjoy the story. I loved the racial diversity in the book. It put a different edge to the characters. Teddy was a very complex person. I wanted to understand why she did the things she did. I knew there had to be something that she was keeping from everyone. I kept reading until I was able to understand her character.
Although it took a little longer to read than most books this size, it was worth the time and effort.
F*THS revolves around our Afro-Cuban heroine, Teddy, who has been battling cancer and has to get chemotherapy again. The book is dual POV (our hero Asher being white and deliciously tattooed/pierced), but the story is Teddy's. Teddy who is trying to live as full of a life as she can because the cancer keeps coming back, Teddy who can't handle a romantic relationship with anyone because of all her issues, Teddy who wants to know her place in the world.
This book is not really a romance, but a sort-of love triangle is the cause of tension between Teddy and Asher. They start out just getting high and playing games and having sex with each other, but they both place barriers up because of Teddy's on-and-off-again relationship with Asher's best friend Reggie.
Teddy and Asher live lives outside of each other, and one of the more remarkable parts of the book is how every side character is noticeably living their own story and has a distinct personality. Even characters who are mentioned through text messages only are full of life (like the members of Teddy's cancer support group, including a genderfluid 40-something parent in remission for decades and a 15-year-old who is likely not going to survive his battle with leukemia). Teddy and Asher both express sexual attraction for different genders, and they're hooking up with other people when they aren't with each other.
Reggie. Ugh, he's so funny. I think we all have a friend like Reggie, who can't really get it together, has a good heart but makes all the wrong choices and is self-centered at the end of the day. The whole trading-Starbucks-gift-cards-for-favors thing knocked me off my butt lol.
The story ends on a cliffhanger, but this book is so outstanding. Can't wait to read the next and see how Teddy holds on.
