✱✱Book Review✱✱ To The Boys Who Wear Pink by Revan Badingham III

To The Boys Who Wear Pink
by Revan Badingham III  

"We are the boys who wear pink. We eat trauma for breakfast, we puke it out to fit into our skinny jeans and leather jackets."

High school reunions were always a bitch. Especially if you're one of the boys invited to Ryan's party. Do you live it up with King and the Trouble Twins? Are you still cool enough to chug beer with basketball jocks Si and Badger? Or do you cower in the corner with mild-mannered Reyes and Angelo, the social outcast?

Also, who hired the stripper?

The night is endless. Watch twenty-four stories tangle as the boys reconnect, fight, reminisce, fall in love, fall out of love, get drunk, get high, get laid, and deal with a shared tragedy in their past.

Momma Says: 2 stars ⭐⭐

I really struggled with this one. I like the premise, but the execution just didn't work for me. Try as I might, I couldn't find a connection with any of the characters, which I think has a lot to do with the fact that I didn't find any of them particularly likable. I'm sure it didn't help much that the story was choppy and felt like it bounced around. I did like the chapter titles, and there were a few scattered scenes that I liked, but the whole thing just failed to come together for me. Quite possibly, it's just me, but I feel like this premise did have potential. It just needed some tightening up and maybe a tighter focus on fewer characters to allow for good development. I do think this book has a target audience, and I'm sure than many will enjoy it. It just missed its mark with me.
