None Of The Above| Book Review

Hey everyone! I apologize for being so inactive lately. I’ll try to get into a solid schedule but there’s no guarantees. Yesterday I finished an incredible book called None Of The Above by I.W. Gregorio.


“Love isn’t a choice. You fall for the person, not their chromosomes.”

None of the Above

Genre: Young Adult

# of pages: 352

My Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Author: I.W. Gregorio

Release Date: April 7th, 2015


Summary:

When Kristin Lattimer is voted homecoming queen, it seems like another piece of her ideal life has fallen into place. She’s a champion hurdler with a full scholarship to college and she’s madly in love with her boyfriend. In fact, she’s decided that she’s ready to take things to the next level with him.

But Kristin’s first time isn’t the perfect moment she’s planned—something is very wrong. A visit to the doctor reveals the truth: Kristin is intersex, which means that though she outwardly looks like a girl, she has male chromosomes, not to mention boy “parts.”

Dealing with her body is difficult enough, but when her diagnosis is leaked to the whole school, Kristin’s entire identity is thrown into question. As her world unravels, can she come to terms with her new self?


None of The Above is an incredible book! It’s the first book I’ve read that has an intersex main character. The author did a brilliant job with detail. Each character seemed so real. Kristen has had a crappy life but her friends are really what keeps her grounded. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a huge secret like that leaked. Not only is there a unique view on sexuality, there’s love, betrayal, forgiveness and so much more. I loved this book so much. It’s definitely worth the read. I wish there was a sequel. There’s some things that definitely feel unfinished. I.W. Gregorio definitely needs to write more books!

“The biggest difference between boy and girls is how people treat them” 


That’s a wrap! Have you read this book? What are your thoughts? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book reviews!

Recently Read:

This was a quick but good book. Not my favorite but still an enjoyable read.

When this goes up, I will have finished this book. It was a brilliant read. I loved it so much. I didn’t realize it was a old book until I noticed how all the girls wear dresses. The language is different. Religion is a bigger deal. The author died in 1942… Still a great book!


Currently Reading:

I would’ve started this by now. I got the first and third book of this series instead of the first and second. I’ll have to read the series out of order which I don’t like doing. Oh well!


I’m going to read through the rest of the Anne Shirley series. I love it so much! I probably won’t read it all in a row but this will be what I’ll be slowly tackling.

I want to eventually read this book. I know most have already read it. As always, I’m behind 😀

I don’t know what else I’ll read!
