REVIEW: Style by Chelsea M. Cameron
This was full of fluff.
It was an easy, quick, overly romantic read. Those are both its strong points and its weaknesses, I think.
If you like or not it will all depend on what you're looking for. I am usually not one for YA contemporary that solely revolves around high school and romance. Yet, this was enjoyable. Sometimes over the top, sometimes just right. It made me smile, but also roll my eyes.
But, as always, I am just glad this type of too sweet high school romance stories exists with a diversity of MC's. I'm happy this book can add to that list by being about two girls, and by featuring a MC with a disability that was not used to add angst or propell the plot or create pity. It was just a girl with a limp.
I am impressed with some of the messages the book sent, in a way that fit with the style. Like the irritation I can only guess girls must feel at the assumption they can only be together or happy with a guy. That "you don't look like a lesbian" is a ridiculous thing to say. That you don't owe anyone a label. And, most importantly, that you are never alone.
I hope this book will be there for all of the kids who never feel represented in the stories everyone talks about. That they will know they are not the only ones, that they are not alone.
Also, the cover is gorgeous ?
