#BookReview: The Seven Torments of Amy and Craig by @donzolidis @DisneyHyperion

About the Book: 

Janesville, Wisconsin (cold in the sense that there is no God)
1994

The worst thing that's ever happened to Craig is also the best: Amy. Amy and Craig never should've gotten together. Craig is an awkward, Dungeons & Dragons-playing geek, and Amy is the beautiful, fiercely intelligent student-body president of their high school.

Yet somehow they did. Until Amy dumped him. Then got back together with him. Then dumped him again. Then got back together with him again. Over and over and over.

Unfolding during their senior year, Amy and Craig's exhilarating, tumultuous relationship is a kaleidoscope of joy, pain, and laughter as an uncertain future-and adult responsibility-loom on the horizon.

Craig fights for his dream of escaping Janesville and finding his place at a quirky college, while Amy's quest to uncover her true self sometimes involves being Craig's girlfriend?and sometimes doesn't.

Seven heartbreaks. Seven joys.Told nonsequentially, acclaimed playwright Don Zolidis's debut novel is a brutally funny, bittersweet taste of the utterly unique and utterly universal experience of first love.




About the Author: Don Zolidis grew up in Wisconsin, went to college in Minnesota, and is mostly known for being a really funny playwright. For the past five years, he's been the most-produced playwright in American schools. His more than one hundred published plays have been performed tens of thousands of times, and have appeared in sixty-four different countries. He currently splits his time between New York and Texas, and has two adorable boys who will someday read this book and have a lot of questions. He aspires to owning a dog. The Seven Torments of Amy and Craig is his first novel. He's hard at work on the next one.

My Review: This book was an on-again, off-again romance between Amy and Craig all during their senior year.  I wasnt to sure about this one when I got into it becuase I am not that into romance books but this one ended up being very good.  It felt very real on what teens go through in school and in their love lives.  I know just being 14 I have had to deal with some of this.  This book is also about struggle, each character went through a lot of struggling about dealing with thir past and their future. 

I really loved how the author put in dyslexia and Amy's unwillingness to stop trying to go for it all.  I really didn't care for how Amy and Craig were breaking up every other week. That seemed like a very unhealthy relationship but I did love how Craig stuck with her though it all.  

This was a rollercoaster of feels. 


Do I Recommend this book? If you want to have all the bookish feels I would try this one.
