Meg and Linus by Hanna Nowinski –OPTIONAL

Nowinski, Hanna Meg and Linus 323 pgs. Swoon (Macmillion) 2017. $17.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: PG (kiss) Violence: G

Meg and Linus are best friends going through their senior year of high school. Meg has two focuses: her heartbreak (her girlfriend dumped her) and Linus’s love life. Linus is thrilled to have a crush, but is unsure if Danny likes him back. The chapters alternate perspectives between Meg and Linus. As they participate in the drama club together things coming to a breaking point in their friendship.

This is a great super tame high school romance that could be added to a middle school or high school library. That being said it was very linear, overly long, and repetitive. I thought that if it was explicitly spelled yet again, that the main characters liked coffee and star trek, I would throw the book. I felt like the book would have been great at about 100 pages.  As is, I felt like I lived that entire fall semester with the pair, and that it was pretty boring.
