Review; Love Spell by Mia Kerick

Thanks to YA Bound Book Tours, I got the chance to read Love Spell by Mia Kerick and today I'll post my review of the book.

Description from Goodreads
Chance César is fabulously gay, but his gender identity—or, as he phrases it, “being stuck in the gray area between girl and boy”—remains confusing. Nonetheless, he struts his stuff on the catwalk in black patent leather pumps and a snug-in-all-the-right (wrong)-places orange tuxedo as the winner of this year’s Miss (ter) Harvest Moon Festival. He rules supreme at the local Beans and Greens Farm’s annual fall celebration, serenaded by the enthusiastic catcalls of his BFF, Emily Benson.

Although he refuses to visually fade into the background of his rural New Hampshire town, Chance is socially invisible—except when being tormented by familiar bullies. But sparks fly when Chance, Pumpkin Pageant Queen, meets Jasper (Jazz) Donahue, winner of the Pumpkin Carving King contest. Chance wants to be noticed and admired and romantically embraced by Jazz, in all of his neon-orange-haired glory.

And so at a sleepover, Chance and Emily conduct intense, late-night research, and find an online article: “Ten Scientifically Proven Ways to Make a Man Fall in Love With You.” Along with a bonus love spell thrown in for good measure, it becomes the basis of their strategy to capture Jazz’s heart.

But will this “no-fail” plan work? Can Chance and Jazz fall under the fickle spell of love?'

My Thoughts On The Book
I had a good laugh at times while reading this novel, especially because of Chance. I also liked that Chance and Jazz was the polar opposites - Chance being a bit OTP flamboyant at times and Jazz being slightly more down to earth, nice and a bit immune to high school theatrics. The really big bonus of this book was that it tackles issues such as gender identity and learning how to be true to oneself as there is no such thing as "one size - fits all".
