Zenn Diagram by Wendy Bryant

I actually finished this book today. Zenn DiagramZenn Diagram by Wendy Brant
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I recieved this book from Netgalley to read for an honest review. This book was somewhere between a 4.5 through a 5 star for me. Maybe even a 4.8.

I really liked the plot of the book. I’m not a math student by any means, but the plot was unique enough to immediately suck me in. A math nerd and an art student was a cute plotline! But wait, there’s more. The math student can’t touch people and she wants to find out why she has fractals or whatever they’re called. I try to not give too much of the story line away, but the story line between these two characters made it a super cute read. It had me at the math jokes in the beginning of the book. The book also gets more intense later on, but again, I don’t want to give away anything. I’d recommend this book to high schoolers and above, not to the middle schooler level. I also liked the other characters of the book as well.

There are two slight problems I had with this book though that made it not be quite a five star read for me. (They are only slight spoilers.) When the girl’s best friend got a boyfriend, I didn’t like the attitude the girl had. At one point of the book, she thought something like, “Oh, look at that! My best friend actually remembered to text me even though she has a new boyfriend and got all popular all of a sudden.” I really didn’t like that attitude at all because it teaches girls that it’s ok to not be happy for their best friends when they do finally have that somebody special in their life. If they were really your best friend you should be happy for them and not try to push them away and act like that. I get that it’s fiction and not everybody will see it like that though.

The other slight problem I had with this book was when the girl sacrified something important towards her future for a guy…it ended up being all right in the end, but when she first made the sacrifice I did want to smack her a little bit for doing that. (Again, don’t want to give away many spoilers.)

I still really liked the book in the end though and thought it was a really cute read. It’s definitely for people who like to read contemporary YA book. The author’s style reminded me of Sarah Dessen’s books, and I like her books as well. It was very close to a five star read for me.
