Warning: ragey rant against slutshaming ahead “What about Frankie? I can’t do this to her I shouldn’t have kissed you I’m not that girl who—” Bitch, please You are.This story is YA contemporary fluff about teenagers who make bad decisions I'm not against this book because of the fact that the teens made bad decisions, I was a teenager once I've made my share of idiotic choices about which I cringe upon reflection I'm against this book because of:1 Incredibly bad decisions Yes, there is a difference between 19year old me driving 80 miles to meet a (female) online friend (accompanied by my real life friend for safety) vs 17 year old girls driving over 300 miles to LAS VEGAS to get drunk and then split to party with strange boys I'm not trying to victim blame I'm trying to beg the use of some common sense2 The cheating3 The slutshamingFirst, the good Diversity It's awesome that the characters are diverse! Hannah is Korean Her best friend Lo is Mexican Awesome But people, DIVERSITY DOESN'T MAKE UP FOR EVERYTHING THAT'S WRONG WITH THIS BOOK.The plot: Goodgirl Hannah decides to sneak away to Vegas to meet her online best friend, Nick Warning, spoilery stuff ahead if you should care to read this book.*takes a deep breath*Turns out onlinefriend Nick has a girlfriend Said girlfriend has big boobs and looks flashy, therefore she barely counts as a human being Therefore it's perfectly acceptable for Nick to cheat on her To make mooney eyes at Hannah and for Hannah to return the favor and fall in love with Nick because his gf totally doesn't count, right?WRONG BLOODY FUCKING WRONG This is a story about Hannah, therefore SHE IS THE GOOD GIRL She is not If this story were told in Frankie (Nick's gf)'s perspective, it would be a whole different tale, one of how Nick fucking cheated on her with a girl he knew online Yeah, how do you like them apples? It takes two to tango, and Nick Is Taken The fact that Hannah wants him and feels and is portrayed asworthy doesn't change the fact that They Cheated.Cheating is not forgiveable, but can besympathetically portrayed, if there is remorse If the person knows what they did was wrong If they felt like the scum of the earth, etc, I might have some sympathy for them There is none such in this book.Now the slut shaming JUST BECAUSE A GIRL HAS BIG BOOBS DOESN'T MEAN SHE'S A BITCH DOESN'T MEAN SHE'S A SLUT My fucking god, are we in the Victorian age here? Desire is not a sin Having an enviable body is not a crime Just because a girl is beautiful and sexually attractive does not make her a slut Why do authors continue to perpetrate these harmful stereotypes?Hannah is so fucking resentful against Frankie for her big boobs She repeats this hateful tirade throughout the book and I was sick of it Listen to these examples.And then a girl walks out from backstage A tiny girl with red hair Not ginger red, but red like a crayon, dyed herself, probably, in some sink or bathtub like Grace this morning Tight jeans, a loose Tshirt—but not so loose that you can’t see her huge boobs—she looks the part of hipster or groupie or oh, I’m with the band girl.That’s his girlfriend The chick with the red hair and the huge boobs.I don’t need to have this girlfriend conversation with Nick in person And certainly not with her standing right next to us, big boobs all in my face.I don’t want to like her I want to punch her in the face I want to make her disappear so I never have to look at her funky style and big ol’ boobs ever again.I could never pull off those shoes and that dress in public Where did she get those boobs?Frankie, to me, was not a bitch She is a perfectly nice girl, she is extroverted, she is eager, she is affectionate towards everyone even Hannah herself But because she is inconveniently the object of Nick's affection, she is portrayed as the bad girl Because she has large breasts, she is portrayed as the bad girl That's not ok with me.
Um So I read this in one sitting.I picked this up because it's about an online friendship, which is a subject I'm interested in since I have so many online friends and have even had online romances The blurb sounded super predictable and typical, so I wasn't expecting much but this book really blew me away! It jumped right into the plot from the beginning, had an addictive reading quality, and off the charts romantic tension Nothing truly mindblowing happens here, but it's a fantastic look into different types of friendships, features several POC main characters, and made me feel like I was really spending a weekend in Vegas with friends There are so many cliches used here, so I can see why it wouldn't be for everyone But the flythroughthepages experience was one I've been lacking lately and I really needed it at this time I was so disgustingly engaged in this story! There was one thing that bothered me (miscommunication) but I'm willing to forgive it because it's used for character growth and I remember being that way at times myself So many other contemporary cliches were used here and done with purpose, or flipped on their heads with insightful discussion by the characters that I was just clapping as I read I so badly wish I could dissect each of the cliches I felt it was tackling in the right way, but it would be so many spoilers!I was definitely not expecting to have such a strong positive reaction to this book! I loved it!I would recommend this if you:Like the show Catfish.Have had online friendships and/or romances and are interested in that subject being explored.Liked Anna and the French Kiss and/or The Selection (Much closer to Anna in tone, but has the same addictive quality as The Selection AKA, a fun book to fly through.) Welp This was pretty terrible tbh The only reason I finished it is because I pulled it from my TBR jar What a letdown.
