Raw and real emotion

Boys Like You by Juliana Stone

Boys Like You

By: Juliana Stone

Genre: YA realistic fiction

Pages: 304

Published: 2014

Read: September

4 out of 5

Broken girl meets broken boy…Can they save each other? Although a little unbelievable that Monroe and Nathan are dealing with such similar issues at exactly the same time they meet; it COULD happen. Some readers may not notice or care about that convenience; and once the rest of us let it go you will feel the raw and real emotions of the teens.  If I had read this book when in high school, I would have absorbed the book with my tears and made it one of my top ten books. With that being said, I do believe the closer in age the reader is to characters the more attached to the book they will be. It is a quick read that is well deserving of the Teens’ Top Ten nomination.
