Pitch - Will Parkinson 3.5 stars

I really haven't been reading much YA lately, but this one had been sitting on my Kindle. It was an overall good read that reminded me of all the things I love and hate about YA stories.

I enjoyed all the characters and I did get emotional over Taylor's struggles over not wanting to come out in HS and crushing on the presumably straight star of the school. Benny was a stellar best friend and confidant and I am definitely looking forward to his story. The mean girl was horrible and the villain was a bit over the top for my taste. After Taylor and Jackson finally talk and get together, however, the story took a darker turn and I felt a little cheated out of some more couple time. If you are looking for a YA a story with all the classic YA emotions and angst you'll probably enjoy this one.
