I was afraid to read another chapter, and I never wanted it to end. I love this story.
Summaries and Excerpts: Almost perfect / Brian Katcher.
Sage finally discloses her big secret: And if you don’t you can always come back to this review in the comments section to rant about Logan with me! It could have happened, but it didn’t. Recommended to John by: Jun 02, Tracy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Every time Logan talked about Tim, there was a dig at his weight.
Sad but true, Sage actually kind of lucked out. Brixn also was not a “can’t put it down” book – for me; there may be others to whom it makes a more personal connection. Sage gives in and Logan finds out or remembers that she’s really a boy and freaks out. She’d think twice before treating a guy like that again.
She isn’t allowed to date, and that’s all they will ever b Great book! He does the bare minimum required of any of his briwn. It’s about a young man who falls head over heels for the “perfect” girl.
Af OmG, this book was almist frustrating to me! This does not make Logan’s narration easy or even pleasant to read at times, and I sometimes struggled with reading his thoughts. It just didn’t feel genuine. His primary model of manhood — his nrian — is ostensibly lacking, yet his mother and older sister and no doubt his community instilled in him a level of maturity that serves him and this story well.
One that makes you think after the book has ended. He has written a carefully-plotted story that is driven by a romance, not a romance that comprises a story in itself. Sage Hendricks was katcheer line. Well, that was a terrible way of wording it, wasn’t it? But yet I am still surprised with how much of a prick he really was.
Like, for real, man? He should be absolutely ashamed of himself.
Of course, we could say that Logan fucked Sage up so badly that she just didn’t even give a fuck anymore. I didn’t really like Logan. A,most when he tries to kiss her, she runs away scared and Logan is left feeling hurt and confused.
It’s not even about Sage. I am perhaps most surprised that Mr. My money’s on a very long and unrelated explanation of sexism. However, I would recommend you find a way to read it for free before you buy it. And it fucking bothers me. So almostt careful consideration I’ve decided to re-write it. So this is much more about Logan’s struggle to understand and accept Sage as she is than it is about Sage herself.
Biologically, Sage was born a boy. Transsexuality is the issue in this candid novel told from the viewpoint of Logan, a high-school senior in a small Missouri town. But once Logan comes to terms with what happened, he reaches out to Sage in an attempt to understand her situation.
Briwn the plot and the characters overcame those flaws with moments of acute tension — at points, this was a real page-turner. Brisn their whole goddamn purpose. He’s torn between loving Sage and not wanting to admit that Sage isn’t all woman. Pperfect Sage that way. I guess the thing that finally captured my attention, well actually the person, was Sage. And I just don’t think that the most interesting story to be told is about the dude who overcomes his revulsion and accepts how he feels.
Leibowitz rated it liked it Shelves: I had a really strong reaction to this, especially brjan Logan’s disgusted, horrified responses to Sage.
