Eraser Tattoo by Jason Reynolds: 2 stars
Cute. A sweet story of two neighbors who have grown up near each other and of course have fallen for each other but one is about to move away.
Meet Cute by Malinda Lo: 2 stars
Honestly, I would have given this story one star, but it gets two because it is takes place at a com con in Denver, when the lights go out. That's basically the entire story for you. The main characters wander around lost. It was a bit hard to follow most of the time, but cute.
Don't Pass Me By Eric Gansworth: 4 stars and a heart
Be Cool for Once by Aminah Mae Safi: 4 stars and a heart

Well then... After reading this one you feel a bit douche-y giving it less than 5 stars but it is heart-wrenching. It was a bit hard to follow at first, but after some glancing back and forth, it is a good, quick play. Fans of Jason Reynolds' Long Way Down and Angie Thomas or Nic Stone will enjoy this one. It is about four dead kids who are trying to be remembered by tagging walls before they get forgotten, but they come to find out that one was killed by one of the others in their "hallway."
