Publishing on -June 27, 2017
That’s seventeen-year-old Genesis according to her small New Jersey town. She finds refuge and stability in her relationship with her boyfriend, Peter—until he abandons her at a Planned Parenthood clinic during their appointment to terminate an unwanted pregnancy. The betrayal causes Gen to question everything.
As Gen pushes herself forward to find her new identity without Peter, she must also confront her most painful memories. Through the lens of an ongoing four act play within the novel, the fantasy of their undying love unravels line by line, scene by scene. Digging deeper into her past while exploring the underground theater world of New York City, she rediscovers a long-forgotten dream. But it’s when Gen lets go of her history, the one she thinks she knows, that she’s finally able to embrace the complicated, chaotic true story of her life, and take center stage.
This is one of the very first YA book I have read which deals with abortion and pregnancy.
And I totally loved this book not just because it’s really good but also because it deals with so many issues in a playful and light note.
I completely agree with story and the characters.
Bonnie Pipkins’ writing style is addictive and crafty that makes you wanna read it more..
Everything of the story including plot and characters was PERFECT. I especially liked the protagonist,Genesis ,her imperfections and her perception towards life and her love for theatre .
The book made me emotional but I loved the ending.
I also liked the writing style ,the way the flashbacks appear in theatrical form.
In short,The book is very good and simply PERFECT YA.
This powerfully immersive and format-crushing debut follows Gen from dorm rooms to diners to house parties to auditions—and ultimately, right into readers’ hearts.
