Kissing Ezra Holtz (and Other Things I Did for Science)Kissing Ezra Holtz by Brianna R. Shrum

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



“That’s when he kisses me.

It’s not tentative, it’s not a question mark, but of course it isn’t; Ezra hates question marks.”

⚠ Read if: you are a bit of a science geek, loves romance and/or if you are looking for Jewish YA fiction.

This book is a breeze through read. It was not what I was expecting and it was a struggle to connect until about the 20% mark and then loved the rest.

Kissing Ezra Holtz is a great coming of age novel on dealing with failure and change, growing up and its struggles, finding your indentity, loving yourself and others. It was also enlightening to me as I was introduced to some facets of Jewish culture, traditions and beliefs. The concept of using scientific principles is such a fun experience, especially giving a glimpse on the experiment subjects.

This is an informative yet sweet read. I recommend.

  1. I was worried about this one. I have it for review, but have been seeing meh reviews. I liked Shrum's last book, and should I not be into it, I will try to push through that 20% mark.
