So sweet and funny, and a really quick read with the email/text format of the book.

Thanks to the #kidlitexchange network for the free review copy of his book – all opinions are my own. Let's just cut to the chase: I loved this book. I loved how candid and connected Ava and Gen were, and how they said everything without a filter. It reminded me of myself. Or at least how I imagined myself to be: fearless and bold.
 Despite the laugh-out-loud moments that laced their nearly constant communication, there were also a lot of heavy topics including sex, sexuality, drinking, drugs, and mental health. Heavy topics dealt with with that fumbling grace often associated with young adults trying to find their way in the world. This book made me laugh and cry. I highly recommend this book for mature readers, young and old.

Okay, this book was a lot of fun, hard to put down, laugh out loud fun! I would be reading this on my lunch break at work, or sitting in a restaurant and couldn't help but laugh as I was reading. It was definitely more of a New Adult as opposed to Young Adult book. It is college aged, yeah, freshman year, but it definitely goes into all the sex and drinking and drugs. The experimenting that many kids do when they go away to college. Honestly, I liked a lot of the issues the two characters had and how they were handled. But personally, I felt like Gen was often unlikable and kind of a jerk to Ava. Ava was not someone who understood what Gen was going through with her changing or questioning her sexuality. I feel like I've been in similar situations with friends who were changing because of moving or who they were dating, or whatever. And for them to not be understanding was hard when I was still trying to be a friend, even trying to understand them. I get that Gen was also probably dealing with a lot with her issues and what she was going through, but she definitely was being mean in my opinion. I also was not a fan of all the drug use that Gen kind of actually did at the start of the book. That made me lose some respect for her. As well as how she behaved with a professor. In a way, that part of the story might have been a little bit cliche. You know, the older woman initiates the girl out on her own into lesbianism. Just a thought. I could be overthinking it. So far I guess you might be wondering why I gave it such a high rating. Well, I do feel like it was probably realistic even in a lot of the things I didn't like that I mentioned above. Not only that, but it was hard to put down. And as I mentioned first thing in my review, I laughed so much at this book. The times their quirky friendship did show through, it was exactly the type of friendship I've had in the past, the kind that I love and makes a great friend. And I do love the format of telling a story through emails and texts, so that made it good for me as well.

This book is genuine and important in regards to female friendship and relevant and real in all the interactions between every character and every message. Also, it's funny because Alison and Gaby are hilarious humans.

I received an eARC copy of this book from the publisher. Here is my honest review. I've gone around and around on what rating to give this book; on the one hand, I enjoyed it and think the authors did an incredible job telling the story of Ava and Gen using emails and text messages. I enjoy the epistolary format and the title was certainly intriguing. On the other hand, the book has elements that I find questionable. There is language which I find bothersome but doesn't turn me off. As a mother, I enjoy reading what 'kids these days' are reading. I think it's important to know what they are reading and it is my belief that literature opens the doors to conversation. This book explores topics that are relevant to young people today and that is where it's value lies. While I don't agree with the choices that the characters make, I think it portrays the culture and morals that our young people are facing. Sometimes it is just easier to talk about issues when it's someone else than yourself. The setting is college and drinking is a part of college life. For instance, it's easy as a parent to tell your kids not to drink; it's not as easy to talk to them about how they might encounter those situations and how they think they would handle them. But you can have a discussion about Ava and the choices she was faced with. Personally, I could only recommend this book with caution based on the content and how it is written and handled. I would not let my teenager read this book; I would let my child headed off to college read this in the months before leaving for college. Ava and Gen's story is told through a very wordly, anything goes, viewpoint. I know that works for many people. Based on the content and story details, I would rate this book a 2 or 3. Based on the writing and the authors ability to tell a story in such a difficult format, I'd rate this book a 5. Acknowledging that the content of this book does address issues that young people encounter today, I'm rating it a 4.

As a fan of Just Between Us, I Hate Everyone But You did not disappoint. It was a funny, sincere, engaging, and worthwhile read that made me wish I was still in college.
