My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I picked this book because of the beautiful cover and name. My expectations and what this book actually gives are two extremes.
1. Usage of ‘gaming’ terms and musical band terms.
2. About Vic’s love for video games.
3. A nice bestie and boyfriend.
4. Coming-of-age theme.
So the problem is that the blurb was misleading. The way it describes the book, one would consider it to be a coming-of-age book about growth as an individual, maturity etc, but it was nowhere seen in the MC, Vic. I was unsatisfied after finishing this book. All the characters are confusing and I found them to be selfish. There were a lot of geeky references to video games and comics but, they didn’t come out well. It was as if they were there just because they needed a mention.
It was bland. The scene, concept and plot, everything was really good but was wasted. I would have liked it more if the characters were more clear.
