'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?

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.

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!

wish i had this growing up

this book has quickly become one of my all time favourites, its nicely written and cheesy in the way most teen romances are in a good way, its as wholesome as it gets when it wants to be but is very real when it comes to the darker parts of coming out without sacrificing how the characters have been built up. and although I can't relate to all of Kai's struggles personally, ido feel like i relate to him more then most protagonists in these types of books and Bryson just becomes more and more likable as the book goes on like honest to god he's a cinnamon roll prosonified.
abserlutely recommend if you're looking for a purely feel good coming of age story.

Charming

I’m not a YA, I’m not a pupil, I’m actually a Professor, but I loved this book - excellent from start to finish. Well realised characters and you are rooting for Kai throughout. I look forward to ‘Marry Me Bryson Keller’!

Just the right amount of cheese

I didn’t think I would love this book let alone like it. It felt like all the other teen romance stories I’ve read before with its cringey and cheesy narrative when I first began. Soon, I was listening to it on the way out the door, every lunch break and well into the late hours.
I just couldn’t put it down.

The characters are relatable and witty it touches on so many important truths that represent the LGBTQIA community. I found I was laughing and crying along with the characters and I became whole again by the end of the story.
I won’t spoil anything because it is an experience that should be experienced for yourself and I couldn’t recommend it enough.
