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.”
Genre: Young Adult
# of pages: 352
My Rating: 4.5/5 stars
Author: I.W. Gregorio
Release Date: April 7th, 2015
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!
