Book Review: Love and Other Perishable Items

Love and Other Perishable Items
by Lauro Buzo

“‘Cuz when you’re fifteen, somebody tells you they love you, you’re gonna believe ’em.”

We all know that when we become teenagers, we enter another world where school is no longer fun, parents misunderstand us, and boys play with hearts. Amelia Hayes is a normal teenage girl with parents who don’t understand her, has a part-time job at a local grocery store, and who wants to fit in. She then meets a college student, Chris who helps her at the check out. Turns out, it was one sided. Amelia then accepts the age gap and the impossible probability of Chris falling in love with her – kind of.

Okay, so this book was very well written, it was kind of frustrating because of Chris and it was kind of heart warming. I love how they share their love for literature because honestly, not a lot of guys are interested in literature. I also love how Buzo wrote both Amelia and Chris’ perspective because it shows the different life a teenager and an adult has. I love how I saw Amelia grow as a young lady when she slowly accepts that she can’t have the love she wants. In the book, I like how it captured the attention of young hearts because girls nowadays are like, crazy to have love. I’d give this book 3 stars and a half because it was kind of awkward and yes, maybe age is just a number, but what does a 15-year-old now about love, right? This was a really nice book and I cannot wait to read more of her books. I recommend this to teenagers due to the language and the funny mentions of drugs, especially girls who like contemporary books.

I also apologize for not writing until today. I was kind of busy 😀
