'Date me, Bryson Keller!'

Everyone at Fairvale Academy knows about the dare Bryson Keller has accepted - each week he has to date the first person who asks him out. He just never specified it could only be girls. When closeted Kai challenges straight Bryson to secretly date him, it should be a recipe for heartbreak. But as the two boys open up to each other, they find themselves getting closer. With his heart on the line, Kai must grapple with his growing feelings for a boy who can never be his...right?

Wonderful

Beautiful. Perfect. So real.
It’s the first time I listen to an audiobook before reading the book itself, it was a wise choice.
I did it because I could see the manga Seven days as an inspiration for this book and I liked the idea. Now I love the book almost as much as I loved the manga in the first place.
The performance is simply brilliant.
It’s a must read story.

Excellent!

I absolutely loved this audiobook. The characters were very relatable and told a story that many should be able to relate to in some way.

The relationships between the friends was something many gay teens don't necessary have, it was good to see them stick together. A special mention has to go to Yaz, everyone needs a Yaz in their lives.

Highly recommend!

Amazing and Adorable

Love this story so adorable and love Kia he I'd now definitely one of my all time favourite fictional characters and the friendship between the musketeers.

At times I thought that Bryson was too good to be true but I loved that your saw a less perfect side to him.

All in all an amazing book

Highly recommend: an easy but beautiful listen

This book was beautiful. It’s definitely for you if you love stories like Openly Straight, Love Simon, or TATBILB. It has funny moments but mostly it’s just an extremely cute romcom that leaves you feeling warm. But it also shares an insight into the struggles of coming out and the homophobia so many young people still experience! Overall a really enjoyable story that I’d be happy to listen to again, and again!

I got sick of the preaching

I am not sure how to rate this. The thoughts about hetero's having to come out as hetero I already knew from bestseller Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. So why write another book? 70% of the dialogue is arguments about gay rights and that is where I doubt my rating. Living in a country where schools and churches can get closed if they teach homosexuality is wrong, and schools have a coming out day every year, all discussions and revelations are pointing out the obvious for me.
So for adults living in homophobe areas or teenagers questioning their sexuality, I would say: 3 star book.
If you have heard it all before and and think the narrator has the emotional range of a soap actor, I would say 1 or 2 stars.

I fell in love with this book

This book really captures what it's like being a queer teen in this world. I love the main character and the love interest. The story was refreshing and I enjoy how the book was structured. I was at tears by the end of the book. Definitely my fav book ever. So beautifully written.

Great book, could not stop listening to it

Really loved this book. Some of the feeling and moments in it were so relateable and very well written. Have to say also shed some tears.
