2 gnomes and a gnome hat out of 5 gnomes
This story is pretty darn predictable but it is a fun read most of the time.
Kevin is really bro-tastic aka he acts like he has to be a manly man all of the time. Then for good reasons he gets put into a cooking class or Domestic Tech (which I’m pretty sure is a really old fashioned name for that kind of class.) Cooking introduces him to Claire who is not who Kevin would normally be around. She sounds pretty normal but he and his friends only go out with the popular girls/cheerleaders.
Kevin and Claire make for an interesting combo and there are the obvious complications along the way. They both make some definitely not great decisions but it does feel earned when they find their way back to each other.
A certain part had me sobbing pretty good because I always worry just a bit too much when a dog in a story has issues.
Overall a quick read that could have used just a little more depth to it all.
