english review only

audible audiobook


Summary: For Angel Ahmadi, life is only about one thing: The Ark – a pop-rock trio of teenage boys who are currently taking the world by storm. Being part of The Ark’s fandom has given her everything – her friendships, her dreams, her place in the world.

Jimmy Kaga-Ricci owes everything to The Ark too. He’s their frontman – and playing in a band is all he’s ever dreamed of doing. It’s just a shame that recently everything in his life seems to have turned into a bit of a nightmare.

Because that’s the problem with dreaming – eventually, inevitably, real life arrives with a wake-up call. And when Angel and Jimmy are unexpectedly thrust together, they will discover just how strange and surprising facing up to reality can be.


My review: Alice Oseman can do no wrong!!! (and no one can convince me otherwise)


I read her three books in order they got published and I love them all three, but I can totally see her growth through them all.


I LOVE this one. Obviously. The diversity, without playing into any stereotypes. I'M SO HERE FOR THAT. The characters were just amazing, frustrating but so loveable. Seriously they are all my children and THEY DESERVE THE WORLD. But I have to say in this book the grandparents are the real MVP's.


I loved the story. It went into a completely different direction than I thought it would go. And I loved it. Seriously. Such great storytelling. And all the different relationships. I love Alice Oseman's way of writing really great, not romantic, relationships.


Now I only need to get my hands on Heartstopper and the new book that should come out soon, and I'm the happiest of all the beans.
