drawing comics again, creating a no-nonsense, truth-talking character named Penny Kind. Who speaks to him. Literally.
Jeremy’s only dreamed of? And after he kisses a boy at a college party, will Jeremy finally face what he’s been hiding from?
The Evolution of Jeremy Warsh is an excellent coming of age story by Jess Moore.
Jeremy is bullied, poor, and his life is weighed down with problems. On top of this, he's also discovering his sexuality. The one fantastic thing he has going for him is his relationship with his mother. Totally tear-jerking.
This tale captures many of the usual high school issues. It encompasses friendships, family, coming out, and discovering yourself. It's well written, and developed well.
From the beginning, I became engrossed in Jeremy's story. I definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys young adult stories.
