Would you believe that this is the first Becky Albertelli that I’ve read? As someone who reads a lot of queer YA, I’ve still not picked up any of her books before this. But this book sounded like so much fun that I grabbed at the chance to be on the blog tour, so I could read this book.
And I actually really enjoyed it. This book took me no time at all to get through, and it was actually more friendship focused than I expected. I really loved that. So if you’re on the lookout for more YA contemporary with more of a focus on friendship? This could definitely be the book for you.
This story follows Kate, a junior in high school and her best friend, Anderson. The two of them are described by other friends as being too codependent. To the point where they actually have communal crushes. You heard that right. They like crushing on the same guy. But these guys are usually guys that aren’t really involved in their lives. Until their latest crush, Matt joins their school and the school musical. Suddenly Kate is beginning to realise that liking the same guy as her best friend isn’t all that fun, even as other aspects of her life seem to be changing for the better.Continue reading “Blog Tour: Kate in Waiting by Becky Albertalli”
