Review-Graphic: Read Me Like A Book by Liz Kessler

Published 14th May 2015 by Indigo books (Orion).

Read Me Like A Book had been on my radar for a while and I couldn’t wait to read it! I haven’t read anything by Liz Kessler before though have heard a lot of positive things about her books – though this release sees her take on a new genre and age group. Read Me Like A Book was written around fifteen years ago but because it was about a gay young woman there was a slim chance of it getting published. This year however it’s finally reaching an audience -and I just know this is going to be a well-received, often-recommended book for years to come.


 Honestly, the plot is like nothing I have ever come across before: Ash is navigating life with a boyfriend, but feelings are starting to surface for her English teacher – but what do they actually mean? And how can Ash work that all out on her own, when everything around her is falling apart? The plot develops in a really unforgettable way, with ups and downs that’ll make you laugh and cry. Ash is such a brilliant main character. Liz Kessler has captured the feel of a teenage girl today perfectly.

I really highly recommend this no matter what your reading preference. It’s relatable, unforgettable and it’ll change minds.

I received a copy of Read Me Like a Book from the publisher, in exchange for a review. In no way at all did this affect my thoughts.
