Three years ago, Tanner Scott’s family relocated from California to Utah, a move that nudged the bisexual teen temporarily back into the closet. Now, with one semester of high school to go, and no obstacles between him and out-of-state college freedom, Tanner plans to coast through his remaining classes and clear out of Utah. But when his best friend Autumn dares him to take Provo High’s prestigious Seminar—where honor roll students diligently toil to draft a book in a semester—Tanner can’t resist going against his better judgment and having a go, if only to prove to Autumn how silly the whole thing is. Writing a book in four months sounds simple. Four months is an eternity. It turns out, Tanner is only partly right: four months is a long time. After all, it takes only one second for him to notice Sebastian Brother, the Mormon prodigy who sold his own Seminar novel the year before and who now mentors the class. And it takes less than a month for Tanner to fall completely in love with him.

I genuinely enjoyed this book, and breezed through it in a day. It was fast-paced, funny, and relatable. I really enjoyed the family dynamics, and how our main character’s family was present rather than being mentioned and never seen again. I do think the relationship between our protagonist and his crush was a bit rushed, I felt as though it needed to be a bit slower-paced but nonetheless I was cheering for them throughout the entire book. I also really enjoyed the book writing class, especially as someone who wants to write a book one day. The main character was extremely relatable in the sense that his creativity in terms of his art was strongly influenced by his feelings, so much so that he couldn’t work on anything other than writing involving his feelings in a way.

An extraordinary book. Loved it. Hope more like this come out to help YA understand the reality of being different in a sometimes cruel society.
