Only Mostly Devastated by Sophie Gonzales | Book Review


Rating: 5 out of 5.

Amazing, amazing, amazing.

Genre: YA, contemporary romance [queer]
Author: Sophie Gonzales
Published: March 2020
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
Pages: 368 (paperback)

I loved every second of this. This was a beautiful, heartfelt, hilarious queer romance that is not to be missed.

You can’t help but fall in love with the quirky gorgeousness that is Ollie from page one. I became wholly entranced by this story and felt every emotion and he tackles difficult family life, with a family member very ill with cancer, the disruptiveness of moving interstate and the complications of falling totally in love with someone who isn’t out yet.

This is magnificent and as brilliant as the likes of Anything But Fine or Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – can’t recommend enough!!

Ollie falls for Will over the holidays, but once summer’s ended, Will stops texting him back.

Enrolled at a new school – Will’s school – Ollie finds that the affectionate and comfortably queer guy he knew from summer isn’t the same one attending Collinswood High. This version of Will is a class clown, a basketball jock and, well, a bit of a jerk.

The last time Ollie gave Will is heart, Will handed it back to him trampled and battered. Ollie would be a fool to trust him with it again, right?
