Review: Trouble Is a Friend of Mine

Trouble Is a Friend of Mine Trouble Is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was great. I loved the premise of it. It had a john hugh and veronica mars type of feel to it. I liked the characters. Zoe, Digby and their crew were amazing. Zoe was a sarcastic narrator, I liked her and her dynamics with the guys. There was this one scene where Digby and Henry have to get something away from a girl but they can't because they don't hit girls, so Zoe just slaps her and she falls down. It was one of the best scenes. I feel that themes of the book were friendship, not judging people based on their appearance, and family. I liked the relationship between Zoe and her mother, i felt that it was realistic with how they were both dealing with changes. Now, I know this book has been marked as a romance also, but the hint of a romance was at the end between the characters. Luckily, there is a sequel that comes out in November 2016. It's called Trouble Makes A Comeback. I'm excited for it because Digby comes back and Zoe has friends and is dating a guy in the sequel. :) I rated this book 5 stars and would highly recommend it if you're looking for something light and fun to read.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo 
The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood
 :) I'm excited the most for A Court of Mist and Fury because I love Sarah J Maas's books and her characters are incredibly written. Anything by Morgan Matson is a must read. Her books are great and they always make you feel good after you read them. If I was your girl is a story about a trans girl and the author is a trans-woman. I loved the premise of the book because it's not about this girl who is coming out, it's about the experiences that she goes through, new school, new friends, romantic relationships. This is my first book where the protagonist is an LGBTQ character and  I love that it is representation of the people in the trans community because their stories are not often told in YA books. Most YA books feature  a lesbian, gay, queer, or bisexual character and they are sometimes the protagonist but most of the time they are a side character. It's great and I can't wait to read the book. The next book is a new author for me. It is about this girl who lost her grandfather over the summer a year ago and the summer was important for her because she had a secret boyfriend, she fell in love, and her best friend moved away. There is a hint of time travel because the character does go back to that summer where certain events happened. I thought the premise sounded interesting. I'm excited to try this book.
