I have been wanting to read this book since I heard about it months ago. Thankfully I managed to get a digital review copy from the publisher! Bless!!! And all that anticipation was so worth it. I loved this book. I’m so glad that I chose this for the readathon because I absolutely could not put it down. It was so well put together, from the huge range of diverse characters, to the way it handled religion and tough issues. It had me laughing, and thinking, and I even learned some things about religion that I never had any idea about before. I myself am an Agnostic, but this book really touched on a lot of different religions, and it was as I said so so so well done.
Michael is an Atheist who is sent to attend a private Catholic school. He walks in with a very pessimistic view from the very start, until he meets Lucy. Lucy happens to be in one of Michael’s classes on the very first day of school. She speaks up about what her instructor (a Nun) is saying about Women, how not all women who make history are ones who break a law, or the like to be heard (such as the Saints of the Catholic Religion). Michael assumes that Lucy is is also an Atheist, however is completely shocked to learn she is actually a very strong Catholic. Michael meets some of Lucy’s other friends, and soon learns although these people do adhere to a Religion, that really means so many different things.
Seriously, read this book. If you want to learn a little something, If you want a laugh (I laughed so many times) or if you’re just looking for a good Young Adult novel. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. OUT ON AUGUST 7, 2018.
