Emergency Contact

For Penny Lee high school was a total nonevent. Her friends were okay, her grades were fine, and while she somehow managed to land a boyfriend, he doesnt actually know anything about her. When Penny heads to college in Austin, Texas, to learn how to become a writer, its seventy-nine miles and a zillion light years away from everything she cant wait to leave behind.Sams stuck. Literally, figuratively, emotionally, financially. He works at a caf and sleeps there too, on a mattress on the floor of an empty storage room upstairs. He knows that this is the god-awful chapter of his life that will serve as inspiration for when hes a famous movie director but right this second the seventeen bucks in his checking account and his dying laptop are really testing him. When Sam and Penny cross paths its less meet-cute and more a collision of unbearable awkwardness. Still, they swap numbers and stay in touchvia textand soon become digitally inseparable, sharing their deepest anxieties and secret dreams without the humiliating weirdness of having to see each other....

    Strap in, folks, because I am not happy with this book. I'd much rather chuck it across the room. It failed on so many levels. I'd figured this would be a nice, decent story of two lost people connecting while trying to navigate through life. Sadly, none of that happened. Which made me salty. Saltier than the ocean.



    I really wanted to like this, I really did. Even after I knew this wouldn't be a good book, my dumbass kept looking for signs of redemption. Surprise surprise, there wasn't. M

    I'm leaving a rating off and calling this a DNF because it just wasn't for me, BUT I still want to share that it's well written, the diversity is awesome, and the characters are in college!

    I think a lot of people will really resonate with the main character's outlook, but it was just waaaay too negative/bitter for me... eventually I decided all of the petty & cynical judgement in the story (from a lot of different characters) wasn't remotely enjoyable to endure or try to adjust my mindset t

    There is a difference between being flawed and being unlikable.

    My brother is flawed. He always forgets to turn off the lights, close the window in the winter, and only cleans after himself at the last minute, right before he heads back to his apartment.

    But my brother is still extremely likable.

    Now. I don’t know how old the author is, but certainly old enough to forget what it’s like to be a teen. I also wonder how many YA novels she has read in her life, because that is a really weird writing

    The girl inspected Penny’s lipstick again. “Wait. I’m obsessed with how matte that is. What is it?’’

    ‘‘Isn’t it fabulous?’’ Penny enthused, reaching for the tube in her bag. ‘‘Too Thot to Trot?’’ she read off the sticker on the bottom. Christ, she felt as if saying makeup names out loud set women’s rights back several decades.
    *


    Right. Because powerful women do not wear makeup. Because makeup is what is keeping women from achieving gender equality. It all boils down to that, I see, I see.

    Sam’s armchair was set slightly higher than them on the sofa and he crossed his legs elegantly. His right knee brushed Penny’s left and she almost passed out. With the comically small espresso cup in his thin hands, Penny wondered for a second if he was gay.


    You just met the guy, and you’re telling me you’re so attracted to him – which you haven’t really mentioned before – that a simple brushing of knees has you almost over the edge? Oh, come on. Also, the only reason you think ‘‘for a second’’ he might be gay is because you believe blindly stereotypes about gay people, while actively criticizing people for reducing you (an Asian girl) to a stereotype.

    I simply cannot stand this book. Do as you wish – read it or don’t read it – but please do think critically about some of the offensive or questionable things the characters say.

    Oh, I have a final example, since I already wrote the passage down on Word a couple of days ago:

    He swivelled to see Mallory leaning toward him, elbows hooked on the bar. Her not-insignificant boobs were hoisted to where they almost hit her chin. She lowered her sunglasses with a silver-painted talon. Clearly, too much time had elapsed since Mallory was paid attention to.


    As in, you can’t have cleavage unless you’re desperate for people to look at you? It couldn’t possibly be that you own your own sexiness and just enjoy flirting? Nothing wrong with that. Plus you wouldn’t tell a guy whose buttons are down that he’s vying for attention. You wouldn’t say that about a guy, period. Let’s all stop with the double standards right now.

    Those were Sam’s thoughts… the one character I was hoping to love. Sigh.

    *Apparently, this particular passage refers to the names of beauty products for women as being offensive and ridiculous, so I admit Penny may be right this time around. But that should have been made clear by the author from the start. Thank you to those who enlightened me in the comments section.

    Overall this was a drain on my brain.

    From the start I thought it was pretty stupid to be honest ...

    Milf mom?

    and her daughter bitching?

    What’s funny? Or even interesting?

    The whole thing....

    What’s the purpose?

    Why did I care?

    And what was this book ultimately about and trying to achieve?

    I loved this book so much and I don’t think I can properly review it... I will apologize for what will likely be a hot mess.

    Penny and Sam are both great characters who were easy to root for. They're both struggling and they find a lifeline of sorts in each other. I loved how we just got the surface of the secondary characters. For me, it really helped show how Penny and Sam felt: separate and alienated.

    Plot wise, it's the slowest and most delicious burn that ever existed. I loved the texting an

    I totally agree, soon-to-be Princess Meghan! (Yes, I know she won't actually be called that, but I don't care.) I loved loved loved this book, and it reminded me of how good an amazing YA book (or any book for that matter) makes me feel.

    What a disappointment this was. I love books in which the characters text and this was sold to me as one of these books but they don't even start texting halfway through the novel and the texting is definitely not a huge part of the story.

    The main characters, especially Penny, were so annoying! I just couldn't care nor connect to any of them. All she does is complain and complain and complain. By the end of the book, I just wanted to throw it outside the window because I was D O N E.
