ARC Review Freshman Year & Other Unnatural Disasters By: Meredith Zeitlin

Freshman Year & Other Unnatural DisastersFreshman Year & Other Unnatural Disasters by Meredith Zeitlin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

***Large Spoiler Alert*** So i got this book as part of DAC ARC Tours and it was really good. I wasn't sure what it was going to be like at first but i'm glad i ended up signing up because it was very entertaining. The characters and the plot i loved so much! and after reading this i can't wait to read more from the author! Now some of the characters really pissed me (One in particular) and some of them i just got a kick out of. My favorite kind of books are the ones where i'm able to laugh smile and feel sad at different points and Meredith Zeitlin but that in this book beautifully.

Part of me wishes i read this book last year because i was a freshman myself last year and for some reason i feel like i would of enjoyed the book that much more if i had. But don't get me wrong i'm not complaining! Kelsey was definitely a great character and i could picture her being a real person. You know how you read those books and you find a character and you just can't picture them ever living? Yeah that was definitely not the case in this book. Kelsey was definitely a person in my eyes. She was just starting High School, had a major crush on a popular guy, was bullied by some busy eye browed girl, and betrayed by one of her best friends. Sounds a lot like High School doesn't it?

I loved all of Kelsey's friends they reminded me so much of mine. Even Cassidy reminded me of one of my old friends because something similar happened. It wasn't as bad but very similar. I love when you can relate your life a little to the book your reading its always cool. Em which was basically Kelsey's best friend was awesome she was always there for Kelsey even when she was dealing with her own problems. Jojo I really liked her i'm not sure if it's because she came out in the book but i just feel like she was awesome. I'm glad that she ended up coming out to her friends because nobody should have to hide something like that. You are who you are and if your friends and family don't accept that then they were crappy in the first place. Lexi when she came i was a tiny bit afraid because i didn't know if she was going to be just like her cousin or not but i'm so so glad that she wasn't because that would've been a nightmare. Lastly Cassidy, This girl was obviously the one i was taking about above. I liked her then i hated her then i liked her again. I was so angry when i found out she was dating Jordan. I mean come on now its girl code! You don't date the guy your best friend has been drooling over for years it's just not right. Then when she proceeded to say you can't call dibbs on a guy? You most certainly can! Haha i just thought i might add that. But in the end i'mm glad they became friends again.

Now the boys i know it's sort of a sticky subject first there's of course Jordan the douche. Which i knew they weren't going to be together in the first place which is why i wasn't surprised when he ended up with Cassidy. Next up Keith he seemed like a sweet guy and when he kissed Kelsey at the concert and she stopped him and basically called him out on not knowing how to kiss i felt so so bad for him! Sam? Yuck i felt bad for Kelsey on that one. Josh isn't even worth talking about and then theres Ben. When he first came into the picture i just had this feeling that it was going to be them two together i mean who cares if he's two years older they were sweet together and they flirted like crazy so they obviously liked each other and thats all that matters <3

Overall i give this book 5 stars because it kept me flipping pages like a maniac the whole time i was reading it. Meredith is a very talented writer and like i said earlier i hope to see a lot more from her in the future.
