I Kissed Shara Wheeler
About this deal
But before she left, Shara sent each of them a letter, with clues to more letters, and the possibility of understanding where she is and why she disappeared. Now, I could have been able to ignore this if I enjoyed the plot, but even then, I only found myself enjoying it 60% of the time. It’s a truly glorious thing to live inside the world of this book and to imagine it becoming reality, too. Legit se olvidó de todas sus responsabilidades, ocupaciones y AMISTADES por andar buscando a Shara, a quien supuestamente ODIA con todo su ser.
casey's voice carries into this new target audience flawlessly, but every bit of love and care for the queer community that their previous books do.I couldn’t understand why this main character kept looking for Shara and trying so hard to figure this overly drawn out puzzle out.
La cosa es que, durante toda la primera mitad del libro, estaba segura de que iba a terminar odiándolo.i kissed shara wheeler does take place in a christian high school in alabama, and that setting is integral to the story that is told. In fact, the whole story is about how people are rarely who they seem to be, and the pressure of living up (or down) to other people’s expectations. There were so many sweet moments with our main trio, and it was such a joy to see each of them creating a space for themselves, in and outside of their queer identities. With that being said, it wasn't perfect for me (I did end up kind of struggling with the John Green™-ness of the plot), but I just *know* that my baby gay teenage self would have made loving this book my entire personality lmao.
Y me pone triste porque ustedes saben que la autora escribió uno de mis libros favoritos de la vida (Rojo, Blanco y Sangre Azul), pero con I Kissed Shara Wheeler simplemente yo no pude. Born and raised in southern Louisiana, Casey now lives in New York City with a poodle mix named Pepper.once again, i crave more Friendship (love mcquiston's friendships) and more Banter (love mcquiston's banter) and once again, i am left thinking i could have lived without the entire second half of this. From Chloe and Georgia's friendship to Rory and Smith's reconciliation, and to literally all secondary ships in this book, they are just as amazing as the main one. I’ve been unimpressed by the final acts of a bunch of books lately, but tbh this one gets even better in about the last 40%. this really feels like the simon vs the homo sapiens agenda for people in middle/high school right now though, i think people who love that book would love this one as well! But every single expectation I have or didn’t have was blown out of the water by Ms McQuiston with this book.
