Dress Codes for Small Towns

Dress Codes for Small Towns Read & download æ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free As the tomboy daughter of the town’s preacher Billie McCaffrey has always struggled with fitting the mold of what everyone says she should be She’d rather wear sweats build furniture and get into trouble with her solid group of friends Woods Mash Davey Fifty and Janie LeeBut when Janie Lee confesses to Billie that she’s in love with Woods Billie’s filled with. NOW AVAILABLE Otters Holt by night was all ghost no townthis is a goofy and sweet book with commendable intentions and an appealingly big hearted energy what makes it stand out from most YA offerings is that it is set in a small christian town in kentucky and features a central character whose bisexual explorations coexist with her religious beliefs this is ultra refreshing to me not that i hail from a particularly bible thumping region i was raised roman catholic confirmed and everything but in my family it was of a social rite of passage than anything else is there such a thing as secular christians or is that something like dreidels and the birthright to control the media that only jews get to have i m KEEEEDING i can totally get my hands on a dreidel if i want one but so even though i never felt imposed upon by religion in my own sexual development i know that others struggled with the whole faith vs sexuality situation particularly when their attractions were other than hetero so i appreciate that this book exists to show that you don t have to pray the gay away you can pray and also be gay or at least bi curious without shame and anxiety this is a high three stars but even though i didn t love this book for the reader that is me i love that this book exists for the people it s meant for there s nothing wrong with it other than it being full of teenagers talking like teenagers which gives me a twinge of pleasantly embarrassed nostalgia but doesn t stick to my readerly ribs on the one hand games like THINGS TO DO WITH A CHURCH MICROWAVE are pretty funWoods and I turn our attention to step four which is seeing How Many Peeps Is Too Many Peeps The answer than forty It s messy and delightfulon the other hand there are some eyerolly moments mostly related to a self important tribalistic impulse to define through in jokes The year I was seventeen I had five best friends a Pixie a president a pretender a puker and a douchebag and I was in love with all of them for different reasonsyou know who can pull shit like that off john hughes end of list this involves six friends who once again demonstrating that addiction to labeling are known amongst themselves as the hexagon billie the preacher s daughter and center of the story although not the only POV janie lee pixie woods president davey pretender mash puker and fifty douchebag mash and fifty barely factor into the story although there are practical storytelling reasons for both to exist for the most part they are good wholesome teens they go to church AND sunday school AND youth group they have strong loyal friendships and care about preserving the traditions of their town and prayer and doing good deeds but there s a decent amount of drinking cussing kissing and light arson to keep them interesting they have vowed to keep things platonic within the hexagon s boundaries although it s revealed that there has been some secret smooching here and there in the past and the main conflict of the book is billie s frustratingly simultaneous and eually intense attraction to both woods and janie lee who are currently attracted to each otherso it s complicatedthis does a really good job nailing down that fuzzy bordered place between platonic love and hormone addled curiosity where everyone is possible and you just wanna kiss em all in an overabundance of energy and love heedless of conseuences where it s all innocent puppy piles and handholding and midnight meet ups and snuggling without expectations where billie can wonder at the difference between interest and attraction and wrestle with whether she likes girls or boys or if the dilemma is precisely about individual attraction rather than gender attraction a choice between janie lee or woods and weighing out all the different kinds of love and what they mean He says I think there s a place where love euals history and a place where love euals the future and a place where love is just love and it doesn t go away no matter whether you get it back or not Figuring out the difference Is impossible I finishmy only gripe besides the probably really accurate teen ness of it is that they re a little too old to pretend to be this naive they re seventeen and if you re already shaving driving and using a fake ID to get beer as they are it s unlikely that you can hide behind the veneer of platonic affection characterizing yourselves as a pack of sexually innocent puppies with all the tackling and wrestling and cuddling disregarding any reasonable ulterior motives although it is true that self delusion is a big part of adolescence and one secondary female character exemplifies this by making out with whomever she pleases claiming I don t kiss everyone I kiss the people who have the little pieces of my soul I ve been looking for which is just dramatically romanticizing what is a really common practice by girls coming into their sexual power and ties into the central theme of experimentation holding this book togetherthe word experimentation often gets a bad rap when it s applied to homosexual hookups in YA lit something about being dismissive to homosexuality by reducing it to a temporary whim i personally find this stance maddening and very stupid because adolescence is wall to wall experimentation it s trying shit out to see if it works for you and how you feel about yourself whether it s cliues and personal appearance dabbling in drinking and drugs or kissing girls and boys to figure out which gives you the best shivers if you try it out and it turns out you re gay good for you if it turns out you re straight eually good for you if it turns out you re neither or both or some brand new combination of possibilities experimentation is how you develop into yourself and it s a perfectly useful process and a perfectly accurate word and i see people getting all riled up when they read a YA book where a character has a homosexual experience but ends up in a heterosexual relationship at the end as though it s some kind of betrayal or judgment instead of a thing that happens all the time as teens enjoy their young pretty selves as davey states Billie this shit is murky and personal You had to be able to explore it IS murky and personal and this book brought all of it back to me in a powerful way in fact all of adolescence is pretty much summed up in this one sceneWe re jumping to the words I can t be contained In the middle of everyone else leaping and screaming I stand completely still and fully embrace the eye of the cosplay hurricane The power of so many people doing the same thing rushes through my veins like blood From the costumes to the dancing we re caught up in the same palm of an invisible hand I am dressed as a boy I have kissed a girl I have met people outside my usual web No one cares I am hidden I am perfectly transparentThis is it This is living that frothy epicenter of complete conformity and complete individuality sweaty and happy and feeling like all the secrets of the universe have just been revealed i m glad i read this book and i definitely think it s an important and uncommon perspective in YA lit to advocate being true to yourself while still being a person of faith and just as an FYI from a readers advisory perspective a number of reviews on here claim that billie is genderfluid and unless my copy is missing a bunch of pages that isn t accurate being a tomboy being mistaken for a boy being butch or being called a dyke being maybe bisexual isn t the same thing as being genderfluid and the synopsis description of billie as a box defying dynamo is referring to a totally different kind of box and i know this makes me sound like an asshole but it s an important correction to make for people who are looking for books about genderfluidity and might be misled here a boy wears eyeliner and a girl wears a tie but there s no indication that it s in response to gender identitycome to my blog

I received an advance copy of this book for free Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss I am dressed as a boy I have kissed a girl I have met people outside my usual web No one cares I am hidden I am perfectly transparentThis is it This is living This was a YA contemporary story about a girl who wasn t sure about her sexualityBillie was an okay character but I found it uite difficult to really connect with her I m not sure why this was but it took me a long while to warm up to her The storyline in this was about Billie being unsure about whether she liked boys or girls and wanting to kiss several members of her small group of friends just to see what it was like We also got a storyline about Billie and her gang having to do some community service after accidentally setting fire to the church youth group room and a competition to be crowned corn dolly of the village I have to say that I found the first half of this book incredibly boring though and I kept wanting to put this down and not pick it up again Things did pick up a bit during the second half of the story but I still found that the book didn t hold my attention well and I didn t like it as much as the author s previous books The ending to this was okay but I just didn t enjoy this one much6 out of 10
