A slightly disappointing Teens' Top Ten nominee

The Great American Whatever by Tim Federle

The Great American Whatever

By: Tim Federle


Pages: 278

Published: 2016

Read:  July

3 out of 5

I expected more from this book, mostly because it is on the nomination list for the Teens’ Top Ten this year. I don’t feel it is a horrible book or poorly written, just slow paced. The most interesting and entertaining story line was the relationship between Quinn and his sister, Annabeth. There was a big twist I didn’t see coming with their relationship. I felt the fact that Quinn is gay was more of a side story, which isn’t a bad thing – personally I am tired of reading so many books that involve gay characters. However, this book’s summary and market was portrayed as LBGQT, so it may disappoint some readers in that aspect.
