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.”

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.
