    4.5 stars Rob, a once super popular lacrosse player, has fallen from grace but not on account of his own actions His father, the local financial planner, was caught red handed swindling from clients and everyone suspects that Rob knew Although he did intern at his father s office, he swears he had no idea what was going on.As everything begins to be taken from his family, his father attempts suicide, leaving him in a state where he requires 24 hour care Now a social pariah, Rob finds himself at rock bottom.Maegan, a classic overachiever, has been living in her older sister s shadow for years Feeling pressured to succeed, Maegan cheats while sitting for her SAT causing consequences for everyone in the room Branded a cheater, Maegan sees her social standing slump as well She now keeps her head down and just tries to make it though each day without too much embarrassment.When they are matched together for a calculus project, neither Rob nor Maegan are happy about it Begrudgingly, they begin to meet up to start their project and pretty quickly learn that you cannot always believe what you hear about people They begin to confide in one another and discover they have in common than they ever could have guessed.Nobody writes teenage angst quite like Brigid Kemmerer She puts her characters through hell but the growth they are able to achieve is truly a beautiful thing Rob and Maegan s r...

    4.5 I m gonna need Brigid Kemmerer to never stop writing her contemporaries Her stories fill my soul right up They re always so intense, so heart aching, with such wonderfully flawed and beautiful characters that are alive on those pages She has a knack for writing stories that centre around broken teens coming from broken homes and having the readers follow them on their journey What I like is that by the end of it, these characters aren t healed But they are on their way to carving their own path after having been beaten down and harshly and unfairly judged I like that she focuses on offering different perspectives and outlooks, shattering the outer images that people base our entire lives on, and truly forming relationships with others for who they are To judge less and focus on your own faults instead Perspective is everything Perspectives provide you with meaning and truth and the source I just really appreciate it whe...

    Rob and Maegan s story is out in the world today, friends The idea for this book started when I said to myself, What if I took Robin Hood and put him in a modern day high school I hope you love the story, and I can t wait to hear what you think Thank you all so much for being a part of my dream.

    I am always impressed when authors are able to successfully alternate between genres I have read A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY from this author not so long ago and it was an incredible fantasy CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT is a contemporary romance devoid of any magic and curses, but it s a gripping story nonetheless and proof that authors should be encouraged to explore multiple genres and topics Sometimes they fail, but they still deserve points for trying In her case, Brigid Kemmerer can write anything and everything because she fully understands emotions, compassion and the concepts of intention, motivation and dedication She manages to breathe that knowledge into her own characters so that they, too, can be three dimensional human beings who have a purpose This isn t an easy story to read It s fast paced, so technically the amazing reader in you could potentially finish it in one or two sittings, but personally I needed to take a couple of breaks here and there It has been a while since I ve read a YA book so heavy in content I m not new to conflict and tension or any topic that makes you feel anything but happy, but it s rare for characters to face so many struggles in one story Every single main and secondary character has something going on here For instance, Rob needs to take care of his father who tried to commit suicide He also needs to deal with his new status as an outc...

    My hEART belongs to Brigid Kemmerer contemporaries ok I will full on softly cry on your arm right now, because I really loved this book, plus it stressed me most wholly out And then the ending was the perfect mix of heartbreak and satisfying roundedness that I just want melt into this book and thank it for existing I did actually think this was part of the Letters to the Lost series, but it isn t So you can read this one without having read LTTL except tbh you should go read LTTL because it is one of my all time forever favourites, so if you haven t tried it yet and you want to ugly cry into your sleeve READ IT What could go wrong plotWe have two story lines interweaving here Rob, who s treated as a class criminal because his father was caught for embezzlement and then tried to commit suicide and Rob found himso he s super, super messed up And then we have Maegan, who has the Perfect family and the pressure totally cracked her and she cheated on her SATs, got caught, got hundreds of other kids tests cancelled basically lowkey hated at school as a cheat They are SOFT SAD MESSES, but in very reserved ways I do admit I fell for Rob s storyline He broke me in all sorts of ways, and there was a lot of weight to what he was dealing with vs Maegan s had lower stakes charactersalso can we frikkin take a moment for how amazing the characters in this b...

    But sometimes I think everyone needs to take a long look in the mirror before they go main an issue about someone else s life Rating 4.5 5 starstw suicide attempt, talk of abortion, bullyingHands down, this is my favorite Brigid Kemmerer book so far Her contemporary novels feed my soul every damn time And I should have known that this would be the cure to my reading slump, considering I was hooked on this story by page five Kemmerer has a way with words that makes her books almost impossible to put down The relateability of her characters, their struggles, and the worlds she builds will have you done with her books in no time and craving .Maegan and Rob are both just trying to keep their heads down and make it through the school year after two scandals change their lives Maegan, the A student, is branded as a cheater after getting caught cheating on the SAT s, causing her and hundreds of others to have their results considered invalid Rob, the ex lacrosse superstar, is now known as the thief who helped his father embezzle money from families in their town And to make matters worse his fathers failed suicide attempt has left Rob s father in a vegetative state that requires constant care from Rob and his mother Right off the bat we have A LOT going for this storyand yet that isn t even the half of...
