Mar 26, 2021TEENREVIEWBOARD rated this title 5 out of 5 stars
This was my first time reading an ebook, so it took me some time to get used to this new format. It turned out to be a nice experience though. I did find that some of the sentence and word arrangement was odd, but other than that it was great. The story itself was amazing. Like a Love Story takes place in 80s New York during the AIDs epidemic. It's about how closeted teen Reza, out and proud Art, and fashionista Judy intertwine and change each others lives. The characters were enrapturing: they were realistic, had flaws, and made mistakes. They amplified the already amazing plot. The switching of perspectives definitely made me understand and appreciate the main characters more, plus it added a refreshing twist to the overall feel of the book. I feel like this book gave me a lot of perspective and taught me a lot about the LGBTQ+ community. I loved reading about Reza, Art, and Judy and their emotional coming-of-age stories. Like a Love Story had me laughing and crying, it is truly a one of a kind book. I would give this book 5/5 stars. ☆☆☆☆☆ @Yumeko of the Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board
