Hello hello and welcome or welcome back to my little bookish corner of the internet. Today is my stop on the blog tour for Spencer Hall’s Kind of Sort of Fine, a young adult contemporary novel published this month, with the tour being hosted by Terminal Tours. You can find the tour schedule here, along with the other bloggers who are taking part.
Because of my vision playing like hell again, I’m bringing you spotlight post with plans to return to it as soon as I can for a review.
Senior year of high school is full of changes.
For Hayley Mills, these changes aren’t exactly welcome. All she wants is for everyone to forget about her very public breakdown and remember her as the overachiever she once was—and who she’s determined to be again. But it’s difficult to be seen as a go-getter when she’s forced into TV Production class with all the slackers like Lewis Holbrook.
For Lewis, though, this is going to be his year. After a summer spent binging 80s movies, he’s ready to upgrade from the role of self-described fat, funny sidekick to leading man of his own life—including getting the girl. The only thing standing in his way is, well, himself.
When the two are partnered up in class, neither is particularly thrilled. But then they start making mini documentaries about their classmates’ hidden talents, and suddenly Hayley is getting attention for something other than her breakdown, and Lewis isn’t just a background character anymore. It seems like they’re both finally getting what they want—except what happens when who you’ve become isn’t who you really are?
Thank you for stopping by, and please come back again soon for daily posts. Remember to check out the other bloggers on the tour who will be bringing everything from reviews to interviews.
