#BookReview: Heretics Anonymous by @KT_NRE @KTegenBooks

About the Book:

Michael is an atheist. So as he walks through the doors at St. Clare’s—a strict Catholic school—sporting a plaid tie, things can’t get much worse. His dad has just made the family move again, and Michael needs a friend. When a girl challenges their teacher in class, Michael thinks he might have found one, and a fellow nonbeliever at that. Only this girl, Lucy, is not just Catholic . . . she wants to be a priest.

But Lucy introduces Michael to other St. Clare’s outcasts, and he officially joins Heretics Anonymous, where he can be an atheist, Lucy can be an outspoken feminist, Avi can be Jewish and gay, Max can wear whatever he wants, and Eden can practice paganism. After an incident in theology class, Michael encourages the Heretics to go from secret society to rebels intent on exposing the school’s hypocrisies. When Michael takes one mission too far—putting the other Heretics at risk—he must decide whether to fight for his own freedom, or rely on faith, whatever that means, in God, his friends, or himself.

My Review:  This was one of the funniest books I have read in some time. If you don't mind religions being chatted about in a funny way then this is a book you should totally read!! I could not put this down and within reading the first 10 pages I knew I needed to own this book! 

I laughed out loud during the entire thing and I just could not stop reading until I was done. I read this book at 80 pages an hour and man it was just that good.  This one centers around a group of kids that are forced to attend a religious school when most of them are not Catholic.  

This book does the religious aspect in such a way that it covers a lot of different religions and talks a lot about theology and what is wrong with religion.  I loved every second of this book and can not wait to see what else this author gives us as the years go by! 

Do I Recommend this book? Yes, I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a deep but funny title! 

Go Into This One Knowing: Theology, Jokes about Religion, Slut Shaming, Homophobia (challenged), Friendships
