Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel is a fantastic book, one of the only good books I’ve found that includes a lesbian romance. Aside from the love story, however, the book lacks interest. Its somewhat clichéd series of events could happen in any YA book and some of the character development was not believable. Despite its shortcomings, I loved the romance and the way the book portrayed real feelings that teenagers experience, awkwardness included. The book follows Leila, a young Iranian girl, on her journey of self-discovery. She makes new friends and participates in ever fun high school romances, and finds her ‘love nugget’. It will appeal to anyone looking for a cheerful LGBT YA romance, or anyone bored on a long bus ride.
