Solitaire by Alice Oseman

SolitaireSolitaire by Alice Oseman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I really liked the message of this book and I connected with Michael Holden. Tori was too whiney to like and self absorbed, although that was kind of the point, each of the supporting characters had an element of interest to add to the story. I would have preferred better closure by the end of the book. The message is communicated well in theory but Tori is still kind of just there for me. I neither liked her nor didn't like her. Sorry about that double negative.

I enjoyed the references to literature without feeling lost in it. I actually quite enjoyed the different perspective on the essay about Pride and Prejudice. Well done.
