I absolutely love the books of Becky Albertalli. She writes the books I wish had existed when I was a teenager, And ‘Kate in Waiting’ did not disappoint.
I chose this to join in with ‘Pages of Pride’ over on Instagram, and it was a lovely way to start.
Kate and her best friend Andy always seem to have crushes on the same boy. And it has never been a problem, until Matt arrives in town.
This book does what Becky Albertalli does best and explores relationships of all kinds in a relatable way. You can often imagine knowing the characters or having a very similar experience to them.
Although Kate doesn’t replace Simon in my affections, she is a fantastic character and her story is a great read.
