Book Review of The Girl of All My Memes by C. S. Johnson

He didn't "meme" to do it ...  

Tenth grader Tommy Baher has always lived in the shadow of his older brother Johnathan, and he has always hated it. Determined to set himself apart from his brother, Tommy puts all his efforts into securing the highest grades in his class. There's just one problem standing in his way: Kara Metaxas, his longtime academic rival, who has always made his life at school difficult. 

When Tommy and Kara are invited to participate in the Junior Science and Technology Symposium, an academic competition hosted by a prestigious college, Tommy sees it as a chance to prove himself to his parents and his peers. Tommy feels even more sure of himself as he begins to make funny memes using a picture of Kara. Everything is coming together for him. 

But when Tommy starts to change his mind about Kara - and subsequently, nearly everything else about his life - his memes go viral, and threatens to destroy everything Tommy has worked for. 

Can he find a way to make things right with Kara before he loses everything?

*We were given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

There is much to love about this book. For one, I loved how it was told from the male romantic lead vs the girl. So often in teen romance stories, the main character is the female. I found this to be refreshing to read this type of story from a new perspective. 

There were a few things I wish could have been more developed. I felt like the characters overall had a simplicity to them and were overly wholesome. With that said, this was a G rated type story. This story also had religious elements it as well. 

If you are a fan of teen romance or just young adult in general and are looking for a good clean read that will give you the warm fuzzies than this is the book for you!
