My Mechanical Romance by: Alexene Farol Follmuth

Right up front, this gets three stars from me. It was well written but I have a couple issues personally. High Schoolers who are super competitive is something that always makes me a little uncomfortable because as someone who was one of those super competitive kids, all it got me later on was burnout. Also someone who seems to be a “natural/born this way genius” is also a little hard to get behind. At least that’s just me.

But seeing women in STEM and the things they face being represented this way was good. Women belong in STEM but it’s male dominated and causes a lot of unnecessary problems because of that.

It’s a bit slow burn and kind of hard to get into but, I’ve read worse.

Honestly, kind of middle of the road for me.

Three (3) stars.

I received this eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to them and the publisher.
