This is not a love story, in case you were wondering.

It’s Tori Spring, by the way. I enjoy both blogging and sleeping. Before I had to deal with Charlie and all the stress of high school, A-Levels, college applications, and the eventual necessity of making conversation with strangers, I had friends last year. There was a time when things were very different, but that time has passed.

Here we have patience. Including Michael Holden.

I have no idea what Michael Holden and Solitaire are up to.
Truly, I do not.

Readers who enjoy the works of unflinchingly honest authors like John Green and Rainbow Rowell will love Alice Oseman stunning debut novel.

Solitaire Book Summary

Not everyone in this book ends up content. I don’t think this book was even intended for cheerful readers; they’d dismiss it all as ridiculous. However, that is not the case. It couldn’t be more true.

I think I’m reading this book at the perfect time in my life since it really hit me hard. Not only would 16-year-old me not have enjoyed it as much, but she also wouldn’t have understood the characters as well as 21-year-old me does.

Tori Spring’s story is told here. She is a lonely introvert. Being lonely or shy is not a character flaw. Simply said, that’s how she is. People still criticise her for being this way. Maybe it’s true, probably it is, but those who think she doesn’t try hard enough to make friends or to care about anything aren’t her. They can’t fathom her mental state and its complexities. Because he is her little brother and nothing bad should happen to him, they have no idea how much she truly cares about Charlie, the best person in the entire world. She isn’t just choosing to be sad; she is having a negative reaction to the circumstances under which she finds herself. Tori Spring grew up in a society where the default response to the question “The standard response to “How are you?” is “I’m fine.” Tori Spring may have been born into a gregarious and artificially upbeat culture, but that doesn’t mean she has to conform to the norms of that culture. This is not her.

Michael Holden, a grumpy young man, enters her life one day. The world’s unrealistic expectations have left him feeling resentful and angry. Irritated that others find him strange and dismiss him as unworthy of their time and consideration when he’s simply being himself. Always fuming with rage. But undercover. Avoiding disclosure because he fears additional rejection and isolation as a result of other people’s harsh judgement. You’ve never met a kinder boy than Michael Holden. Despite his ire, he still seeks to bring genuine joy to Tori. He’s not attempting to save her because she doesn’t need saving; rather, he wants her to know that there are others like her in the world. Michael Holden has no interest in rescuing her and has no need to be rescued himself. Both of them simply require assistance. In addition, they are the one for the other.

In the end, this is a story about the bonds we share with our loved ones. I can’t think of a better sibling relationship than the one between the Spring children. They’re wonderful people, deserving of nothing but happiness. They’re stumbling their way through life and doing the best they can; they have each other to pick themselves up when they fall.

This book isn’t flawless, but it was incredibly honest and cathartic for me.
