Kate in Waiting: #bookreview

Have you ever been in love with the same person as one of your friends?

Kate and Alex are dealing with all sorts of drama – on and off stage- at Roswell Hill High School.

Kate in Waiting by Becky Albertalli is set in Roswell, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. The story is fictional but the city is real.

Kate is walking that fine line between standing out and fading into the background. She is a talented singer but one show in the past didn’t go very well and now it’s on YouTube for everyone to see.

A couple of bullies at school put it online along with some cruel comments. Now Kate tries to avoid the bullies as much as possible. The situation is also keeping her from being confident in her singing again.

Kate’s best friend, Andy, also becomes the rival for Coke-Ad Matt’s affection. They usually have crushes on the same people but this is the first time that they have been in a competition to win the same person’s heart.

Andy is the best friend that Kate could have. He supports and encourages her in every way. It definitely puts a strain on their relationship to be in love with Coke-Ad Matt.

With the production of “Once Upon a Mattress” underway, there are more than enough awkward situations between Kate, Andy and Coke-Ad Matt. Oh, the drama.

If you are a theater geek, then you will probably enjoy this book. I am not as familiar with “Once Upon a Mattress” but I hope to fix that problem soon.

I imagine that if you are an f-boy/f-girl, then you might not appreciate this book. You should though. You would be missing out on an awesome book if you kept your blinders on all of the time.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
