Here 's hoping! When I tarted this experiment with the New Adult genre, I felt I was lookin to ave to face a lot of things that I ould n't like.
his genre has become known, during it 's short lifetime, for its sexism, its slut-shaming, its poor writing, its eyeroll worthy characters and its creepy portrayal of young male/female relationships.
Yes, it comes with the sual " girl with issues " plotline and the " reformed bad boy " love interest, but Hoover writes in a way that 's engaging, she weaves humour into every conversation to make you warm to the story and characters almost instantly.
If the author ad just been brave enough to challenge the stereotype, to steer clear of the assumed negative correlation between sexuality and morality, then this could have been a very different and a much better book.Another thing that bothers me is the shallow obsession with looks in this book.
Sky pauses for all of five seconds to think it 's eird that he knows these things, but soon she gets distracted by his beautiful eyes or perfect muscles.No, literally, she faints.
She faints because he 's so hot.More than that, Sky is immediately cured of her numb, lack-of-butterflies affliction as soon as she sees Mr Beautiful.
For one, who grabs your face the second time they meet you?
I would especially not take water from people I know are bad news, but I 'm hirsty. " And stupid.This book tells girls and women to ignore the valuable advice their parents gave them when they were young about what to do if approached by a trange man who offers you a drink and appears to know something about your life, including where you live.
It ells them to ignore all of his because he has a pretty face.
