Description

Until her academic rival, perfect blonde Christian good girl Shara Wheeler kisses her and then disappears. Smith is visibly doing some mental calculations. It’s obvious he and Rory would rather do just about anything than spend another second in each other’s company, which means Chloe’s life is about to be a nonstop tornado of egos, but she can deal with it as long as they get her to a fair victory. Like Willowgrove, it’s a necessary evil. Get It Online Why does she care? Because she and Shara have both spent every day of their high school careers dedicated to the singular goal of graduating valedictorian, and the only thing Chloe has ever wanted as much as that title is the satisfaction of knowing Shara Wheeler can’t have it. Because Shara Wheeler has everything else.

with tons of amazing rep, this novel highlights the life and joy queer communities can form, despite being in a tiny, conservative town. it displayed queer characters at every point in their process of self-discovery in such an impactful and genuine way. i think this novel will mean the world to a lot of young queer people. Expository Hairstyle Change: Shara gets one. She cuts her hair above shoulder-length and dyes it pink. Smith is notably growing out his hair at the end of the book. McQuiston describes Red, White & Royal Blue as a queer romcom and says that they write queer fiction "for the same reason straight people write straight fiction," meaning that they draw from their own experiences. [21] For protagonist Alex's realization that he's bisexual, they were inspired by their own experience. [1] The character of the fictional American president Ellen Claremont in the novel was inspired by American politician Wendy Davis, whose filibuster McQuiston watched and was deeply moved by in 2013. [22] I know when I was growing up, I never saw a school like mine portrayed in media unless it was reinforcing the same narratives that were taught to me at school," McQuiston said. "And so I thought it'd be really, really exciting for me at that age, if I could have read something that both reflected and challenged the kind of experience that I was having growing up. So I hope that this book will do that for someone." Casey Mcquiston

Awkward Kiss: Rory remembers his kiss with Shara Prom night as this. After it ended he only felt vague confusion. Justified, since it turns out that they're probably both gay. Due to the nature of this book as both a Queer Romantic Comedy in a conservative setting and a mystery novel, please note that some spoilers are unmarked! Dark curly hair with caramel highlights, light brown skin, long and straight nose, a jawline both square and delicate like fishbone.

A lot of YA contemporaries struggle with dialogue and slang and how the youths talk, but McQuiston nails it every time. These characters are funny and witty and occasionally stupid, all in ways that feel authentic.Thrown into an unlikely alliance, Chloe, Smith and Rory follow Shara’s trail of annoyingly cryptic clues, and Chloe starts to suspect that there might be more to this small town – and to Shara – than she thought . . . On a furious hunt for answers, Chloe discovers she’s not the only one Shara kissed. There’s also Smith, Shara’s long-time sweetheart, and Rory, Shara’s bad-boy neighbour with a crush. A funny, modern, and entertaining novel, One Last Stop will have you rooting for love that makes people feel free to be their truest selves." - Shondaland

From the New York Times bestselling author of One Last Stop and Red, White & Royal Blue comes a fierce, funny, and frank young adult novel about breaking the rules, getting messy, and finding love in unexpected places. O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Chloe, a student that takes almost, if not literally, all APs and maintains ninety-eights across the board. She forgets to work on her part of the French project she was doing with Georgia that's worth twenty percent of their final grade because she was so focused on finding Shara. This leads to Georgia blowing up on her for constantly neglecting to work on the project with her to hang out with "Smith and Rory and the rest of [Chloe's] new friends." This severely damages Chloe's friendship with Georgia and the rest of their friend group to the point that they stop talking to each other.

Featured Reviews

The cast of characters, as expected, is utterly delightful. McQuiston is uniquely good at crafting great supporting characters, and that's on full display here. Everyone gets a chance to be funny, to be layered, to have a secret. Smith and Ace are my personal favorite side characters, they're so wonderfully himbo-esque. The writing was engaging and readable, and the narration full of McQuiston’s usual wit. I read this book over the space of a few hours as I just couldn’t put it down. I loved Chloe’s voice, it was so distinct. There’s something about the humour in Casey McQuiston’s books that just works for me and I Kissed Shara Wheeler was no exception. From Chloe’s snark to jokes between friends, there was never a dull moment. The humour helped the book remain lighthearted, even as it discussed some heavy themes. Goodreads, "Goodreads Members' Most Anticipated Books of 2022", "The 68 Most Anticipated YA Novels of 2022", and "30 New and Upcoming Books Absolutely Everyone Wants to Read" Brimming with classic YA plotlines, crisp writing, humorous asides, and fully fleshed characters and relationships—many queer—keep things fresh, leading to a genuinely hopeful ending that centers themes of authenticity and autonomy.

When Chloe follows his gaze, she finds an envelope sitting innocuously in a pink letter organizer. Shara’s cursive spells out Rory’s name on the front.When I tell you I felt every word in this book like a physical emotion, I mean it. This spoke to me on a cellular level, breaking me down to my 17 year old self and making me feel so incredibly powerfully seen in a way that I honestly don’t feel all that often. That queer teenage me never felt, really. However, my favourite relationships in the book weren’t the romances but rather the friendships. In particular, the unlikely friendship that formed between Chloe, Smith and Rory as they followed Shara’s clues together. As three totally different people who would never have interacted otherwise were thrown together, something beautiful emerged. They had so many sweet moments and grew together so much and it was just a joy to read. There’s a scene where they take a car ride together and there’s a frog and I want to live in that moment. I also really liked Chloe’s best friend Georgia, a fellow cottage core bookish lesbian with a emotional support water bottle she carries everywhere with her. Post-Kiss Catatonia: The kiss Shara gave her before the events of the book apparently induced this in Chloe. She recalls that Shara kissed a semester’s worth of French out of her head.
