I read CHARMING AS A VERB for #ReadingForSanity book club this month, and our main character was just that – CHARMING! It was really nice to read a story of two teens just trying to figure so much out – high school, college, and love.

5 THINGS ABOUT THIS BOOK:
I LOVED Henri, our main character, and the development of him as a whole. He grew and changed a lot throughout the story.
I LOVED the setting in an advanced/gifted high school in NYC.
I LOVED how easy this was to read – it was conversational and fun!
I didn’t love the pacing. I found the beginning to be super slow and repetitive, but the second half was explosively fast. I would’ve preferred a more even pacing throughout.
I didn’t love the lack of resolution at the end of the book.
Overall – ⭐️⭐️⭐️
