The art is AWESOME
I have never heard that medical art is a thing and I never realized that to some people, it’s actually their dream to produce it and be known for it. This book provides a whole new perspective on art. I love books that make realize things like that by focusing or putting a spotlight on lesser known things.
I know graffiti is a huge deal to some people and it’s illegal but I grew up in a city where I didn’t think anyone was arrested because of it (or I may be just ignorant with what’s happening here lol). I don’t even think they wash up the graffiti on some public areas here. I wouldn’t complain if it’s a magnificent art like what Jack does in the book but most of them are just plain gross looking.
The romance is ASDFGHJKL *insert heart eyes*
I love YA Romance but some of them aren’t just portrayed right, you know? But this book has got it on point. I love Bex and Jack’s banter and they said and did things that I know real life teenagers do. It was fun reading how they met and everything that led up to it after.
There are a lot of them in this book like the reason why Jack does graffiti (it’s super heartbreaking). I’m usually turned off by parents who don’t care for their child in YA but because of the surprises in this book, it turned out well for me. The characters had great character development too.
What do you think of medical art? How about graffiti? Are you also tired by the “parents-who-want-nothing-to-do-with-their-child” trend in YA?
