Whatever.: or how junior year became totally [email protected] characters É PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Inds out why Lisa dumped him it blows his mind And worse he gets elected to homecoming courtWith a standout voice a hilariously honest view on sex and sexuality and enough f bombs to make your mom blush this debut YA novel is a fresh modern take on the coming out story. Whatever by SJ Goslee is a hilarious and honest YA coming out story and it s in many ways unlike anything I ve ever read before It s not a romance by any usual standards but it can be painfully romantic and endearing at times It s a heart warming story with so many laugh out loud moments and unparalleled honesty in dealing with subjects like self discovery bisexuality and coming of ageOur protagonist Mike Tate is so easy to fall in love with despite or because of his many shortcomings He drinks he smokes weed he challenges his friends to do insane things He is really a fairly typical and pretty obnoxious 16 year old boy with wild hormones and plenty of time on his hands At the same time though we see him caring for his 6 year old sister being secretly and sort of reluctantly kind to his friends and putting himself into danger to save a younger boy from a sure beating Even when he s being insufferable which is often there is such potential shining in Mike that it s easy to imagine him becoming a wonderful adult That being said teenage Mike is often kind of an idiot prone to lashing out when he s hurt or when he s feeling insecure Even though this isn t a romance there is a clear romantic interest albeit one that Mike has a hard time processing Through Mike s relationship with Wallace Goslee shows us that we never know what happens inside a person The relationship was built realistically and brilliantly which can also be said about other relationships in this bookThis is a story that teaches us first and foremost about the process of coming out and how intensely personal it is for everyone Even when someone isn t exposed to homophobia even when judgment from friends and family isn t forthcoming they have a right to choose their own pace and come out or not come out when and how they see fit Mike uncovers his own sexual identity slowly and reluctantly preferring to not make waves His mom is completely accepting his hilarious grandmother has her own way of dealing with things his friends are mostly open but Mike just isn t ready to face things It should also be said that homophobia sometimes comes from completely unexpected directions Preparing yourself for this careful and slow process isn t a small matter at all We follow Mike as he learns new things about himself and slowly finds his footing His journey is poignant honest and funny painful at times but so worth it in the end I loved every second of this book and I was so very grateful for its honesty and its authentic voice Hopefully we won t have to wait too long for Goslee s next novel

Whatever.: or how junior year became totally [email protected] characters É PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook It's like the apocalypse came only instead of nuclear bombs and zombies Mike gets school participation gay thoughts and mother effin' cheerleadersJunior year is about to start Here's what Mike Tate knowsHis friends are awesome and their crappy garage band is a great ex. This whole review will be filled with spoilers and boy oh boy do I have a lot to say This book is extremely biphobic homophobic and it s filled with girls fetishizing the main character and his love interest That s not even my problem The thing is none of these things gets called out ever Instead of wasting my time explaining everything let s just jump into some lines from the actual book shall weLisa says You need to be my running mate Mike laughs You re on crack no way am I running for vice president he says You have to she says We can sell you as gay it ll be edgy This one is right from the beginning where Lisa is uite aware Mike isn t straight and continuously pushes him into coming out so it ll help her and her campaign when he s confused himself and hasn t even stopped to think about his sexuality once You and the little sausage man remember She crosses her arms over her chest smug Last month at Cam s end of the summer blowout Full on making out with tongues and hands in private places Her eyes go hazy and she licks her lips GrossThis is from the very next page where Mike tells her he is not gay and she keeps on pushing him throwing on his face that he made out with a guy at a party when he was drunk Needless to say how gross she is with her hazy eyes and lips licking I m in the running for Homecoming King Mike says Yeah that s a little weird You think Mike finally finds his bike but it s under a couple precariously perched boxes He can t remember the last time he s used it Lisa says You could run for ueen but I don t think you re ready for that Isn t Lisa so funny Why are we even friends Mike knocks over what looks like pretty much every kitchen gadget in creation trying to unearth the bike He kicks boxes aside in a huff he s going to be late for work Because I let you see my boobs That s a lie Mike says walking his bike out into the dying afternoon light Touch them yes but Mike has never ever been allowed to see Lisa s boobs even when they were dating Oh that s right because it would ve been a waste I love this bisexuality erasure Your mother tells me you re ueer now She did not Mike says horrified He slumps back against the wall palms catching at the slightly textured wallpaper His knees feel weak She used the term bisexual she narrows her eyes but no grandson of mine is going to be indecisive I don t think that means I m in Michael Allan Tate Nana says Mike swallows hard Maybe he shouldn t be concentrating on terminology now since his seventy five year old grandmother is confronting him about his sexual preferences He brings a shaky hand up to rub his dry lower lip Yes ma am She clasps her hands in front of her chest and says Are you or are you not gay I could move past this scene given that she is old and grew up with different values bla bla bla but then in the next page she outs him to the entire family Of course I m not harassing Michael Allison He s just being ridiculously closemouthed about his boyfriend Because according to her and I uote You don t decide to be gay without a boy that s just poor planning Later on around the final chapters we have yet two scenes where girls fetishize over Mike and Wallace We had sex in his car and then went for ice cream It s still awesome in retrospect but he can t shake the feeling that if it hadn t happened maybe Omar would still be talking to him Christ he hates himself You had oh Jesus Lisa says He can hear a hint of horrified amusement in her toneAt this point Lisa was just completely annoying She s controlling of Mike in a way that she forces him to do anything he wants and he does and than once he admits himself he lets her get away with it But that s not what we re discussing here Anyways two pages later we have Dotty narrows her eyes Wait Mo leans forward hands gripping the edge of the table and hisses You and Rook No way seriously Lenny sueals She sounds delighted She sounds like all her dreams have come true because she s clearly demented Mike buries his head in his arms I don t want to talk about it Too bad you totally have to talk about it Lenny says Or we could just ask Rook Mike jerks upright No Dotty grins evilly He seriously hates cheerleadersI don t even know what to say I m actually laughing We have a bunch of girls pushing a bisexual character into sharing personal details of his life with the guy he s dating As if it wasn t bad enough we re talking about his sex life And no they don t ever get called out on their disgusting fetish Neither does Lisa as she is in fact one of Mike s best friendsThis book has many other issues bad writing no plot main character leaving his love interest so his homophobic friends wouldn t get hurt by seeing them together etc but honestly if they were the only ones I d never even bother with a review But the constant homophobia girls fetishizing the two boys without ever getting called out and the author herself fetishizing them in the explicit scenes made me too uncomfortable to simply let it go It sends a wrong message that it is okay for girls to do this very same thing and it s not Women fetishizing mlm content will never be okay just as much as men fetishizing wlw never will either It saddens me that this still needs to be said in 2017 It s 4am and I read this book in only 6 or 7 hours and I m sure this review is all over the place but I m disappointed to say the least
