Review: Holding Up the Universe

Holding Up the Universe Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal’s YA Reads

3.75/5 stars.

This story started with some really fucked up scenes. Like Libby writing she’s fat in the school’s toilets/walls. Um. Angst overload.

Besides that, this story was so interesting to read. I’ve never heard of the face blindness Jack has.

Jack was more bearable to read than Libby. Libby and I think similarly, but she has some weird ass coping mechanisms.

This story was written in a good enough way. It could’ve had prettier phrases, but overall it was a splendid contemporary YA.
