Featured Teen Book Review of the Week: Way to Go

During Teen Read Month, we are going to feature (and reward) teen reviews of books you might not have heard of before, but deserve some recognition.  For the first week of the month, we have this 2012 titles, with 4 copies waiting to be checked out right now! 

Way to Go by Tom Ryan

4 stars.

Describe the book: Danny starts his first job at a reopened restaurant one summer in his small hometown of Deep Cove. He's almost positive he's gay, but is afraid of the backlash he would get around town, so he befriends a super cool girl at the restaurant named Lisa, hoping that their friendship will wash away the rumors of his schoolmates, despite that they're true

What did you think: I liked it a lot to the point where I finished in less than 24 hours; I really liked a lot of the characters. One of Danny's friends, Kierce, was really annoying, though; but annoying in a way that will make you keep reading to see what happens. Lisa was also a really great character, and I liked seeing Danny discover what he wants to do in life.

Who would you recommend it to: gr7+, lgbtq, friendship, relationships, realistic
