    1. Thank you, Macmillan, for sending me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.Light was something like human love. How could it be so smooth, so lovely and flowing and warm, the apex of human existence at times, and at other times so gritty, the cause of heartbreak and misery and misunderstanding and even murder?Even though I was bothered by the author's fondness for wrong grammar, I cannot deny that this book was so worth my time. It was heartwarming, raw, and so insightful. I parti [...]


    2. ***Warning: There are some minor spoilers below. Please do not read further if you haven't read it yet and plan to read it.***Phenomenal is what comes to mind when I think about this book, the twists and twirls of life it takes me through, and the evocative moments that warmed my heart, stilled my soul, or moved my mind. I found myself tearing up several times, and a couple outright crying.I read Sandy Hall's A Little Something Different several years ago and, after reading the blurb for Love is [...]



    3. At first, I thought I might have made a mistake in requesting to read this book. However, by the end of the third chapter, I realized I was in for a very different and unique reading experience. I ended up captivated with the characters stories and the well-written story line. It was beautiful and raw and I am glad I did not give up on this book.I requested a copy for review purposes and made no guarantee of a favorable review. The opinions expressed here are unbiased and my own.


    4. I tried very hard to finish this book and I got through 80% of it. There were a few issues for me. I felt like the blurb was very misleading. The is essentially a story about how a kid who was repressed by his mother and thought to be autistic, becomes himself. Although that still sounds like a good plot, its not what I expected and I was disappointed when Sam decided to hook up with a friend after Levon. I also didn't like that each chapter was narrated by a different person but some of the cha [...]


    5. Updated after finishing the book: Well, I have had time to calm down and I have other insights. If you read what I wrote before you might think that I didn't really like this book, but I did give it 4 stars. I enjoy books that elicit strong emotions (though I will confess, that I like it better when my last strong emotion is some sort of happy. It can be bittersweet or hopeful, it doesn't always have to be happily ever after) and make me feel a certain way about the character, even if it is hate [...]


    6. *I received this book for free through Giveaways*“[I]n a way every kid was kind of weird in one way or anotherWe had twitches and tics, we were goofy and awkward, we tried so so hard to fit in and find our way through the hell that is childhood, and especially teenager-hood, that we just fucked it up. Wore the wrong clothes, or too much makeup, or not enough makeup, or we were acne-plagued and full of angst, and it came out in all of us. We said stupid things, or were really mean to other kid [...]


    7. *some spoilers ahead*"Light is very strange, and mysterious, and a paradox How could something like light be both smooth, flowing waves at times, and at other times gritty particlesm It was and is something no scientist really, fully understands." So thinks Trevor, a brilliant physicist who is also the mysterious father of Levon, midway through the story. This thought is echoed by Sam Vash at the end of the novel: "And that was why love was like light. Why it was both wave and particle—so slip [...]


    8. Levon Grady and Samantha Vash are both bright and attractive teens, but each one has had an unusual upbringing and followed a different path to the Clock School, a high school for brilliant but troubled teens. Levon is a loner, and no one has ever been able to reach him. Sam has spent her junior year in two different mental health facilities after attempting suicide at her boarding school. The two teen's guidance counselor, Meg, comes up with a special project in which they write and share their [...]


    9. I couldn't decide on a 3-star or 4-star review.I enjoy Paul Cody's writing style and I appreciate the idea of this book. I cared about the characters and liked reading all the different stories of their lives, their reflections, and their connections to each other. I like the idea that we're all a bit broken and that when we acknowledge it and allow others in, we realize we're not so different and we don't have to be alone in the journey. Good message for all.However. I had trouble with the prem [...]


    10. This is one of those books for which you have to roll your eyes a few times and remember that it's YA lit, so it's not necessarily supposed to be realistic sometimes, but if you can get past this, it's a stunner and a great exploration of relationships. The biggest selling point of this one for me was the various interspersed chapters from other perspectives, and the way it felt like it really could be the project of high school seniors. I loved that. I loved the way other people put their opin [...]


    11. The best thing about this book was the look at relationships, the tangled net and how everyone comes together and changes each other and how everyone perceives everyone else. Unfortunately, those perceptions more or less are 100% correct, and the characters have no real existence outside of what people already really knew about them.In this book, everyone is a genius and/or rich and beautiful. Listen. Absolutely everyone in this book is beautiful. And the characters will let you know it, all cal [...]


    12. 3.5 stars. This book ended up being a lot different from what I expected. The style is kind of hard to get used to at first — very unstructured, loose, and raw, with the lack of quotations marks and fluidity of time being a little confusing sometimes. However, the book was impactful in many ways, the backgrounds and development of the characters being the foremost one. Although the actual logistics for the world are sometimes unclear (the setting of the school, specifically), the descriptions [...]


    13. "And that was why love was like light. Why it was both wave and particle—so slippery and elusive and so terribly hard to keep and hold and even begin to understand.A mystery and a paradox. But also strange and beautiful. And why we kept trying."It took me a long time to get into it but once it captured my attention, I was hooked. Initially, I was baffled at the sudden change of point-of-view for each chapter and there are so many different POVs. Just as I was getting comfortable at a character [...]


    14. I really enjoyed this book. I loved the setting of the school as well as the characters; beautifully flawed and totally believableanks to Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to read this book as an ARC


    15. Enchanting prose, neat story. The kind that doesn't have quotes around dialogue but it works seamlessly because the prose is a clean charming river.




    16. When I started this book I was a little worried that I wouldn't like it; let me explaine first 5 chapters were told by a different person the book progresses the only characters that you hear from several times were Levon, Samantha, Meg and Samantha's parentsevery other chapter were from someone that knows, or did know/meet, Levon & Samantha. I was worried that many POVs would detract from the story but I was wrong very wrong. If anything, IMO, I felt as though it enriched the story 100 time [...]


    17. Sam and Levon are students at an alternative high school. They have been paired in a project lasting the school year project where they write their life stories. "The only rule is 100% confidentiality—they will share their work only with each other." This leads to some events that change their lives.I really enjoyed this book. I loved the setting of the school as well as the characters. They were all very human and flawed and very relatable.* Thank you to Paul Cody, Roaring Brook Press and Net [...]
