Chaotic Good

Eace and uiet away from the abuse Unfortunately the only comic shop in town her main destination for character reference is staffed by a dudebro owner who challenges every woman who comes into the shop At her twin brother's suggestion Cameron borrows a set of his clothes and uses her costuming expertise to waltz into the shop as Boy Cameron where she's shocked at how easily she's accepted into. I received an advance reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewMy two impressions of this book1 Wow So cute and feminist and fun2 Holy prolonged drama Batman I can say that without knowing anything about Batman because this book is about being allowed to enjoy comics however you choose to dammitLet s go in orderCute and feminist and fun So good I love that Cameron s a cosplayer and that costume design is an important part of the book It s really fun to read about The love interest is really sweet and so is the romance by extension Looking back I think the whole part of the book where Cam is becoming part of this group of guys while pretending to be one went a little fast and making that part developed could have raised the stakes on her eventually having to explain she s a girl But there are other things going on in the book so I can let it slideCam is also struggling with internet hate as her cosplay blog attracts tons of douchebros angry that she s a fake geek which intersects with this guy in real life who is condescending to every girl who walks into the comics shop Everything coming down on her for daring to be a girl at once is what makes her feel safer pretending to be a boy and is the driving force behind the real point of the book Cam regaining her confidence even as jerks across the internet do their best to make her feel worthlessIn my opinion the book does best when it s leaning on the cute romance the sibling relationship which is also great or Cam reconciling her feminist ire with the fact that she doesn t feel safe any and then finding her confidence againWhen the book doesn t do well That s when it s forcing the drama to outlast when it should have ended And look I get it the book needs a plot That s a thing books need But the solution to your plot running out too soon are not thin excuses that get the job of expanding the plot done at that point you need to go back to the drawing board and reconfigure the pacing of the book so the plot lasts as long as it has to For me I reached a point of frustration at 70% of the book where I stopped buying the characters s reasoning for why misunderstandings hadn t been clear upThat doesn t mean everything after 70% was bad There were still plenty of things I enjoyed and a lot of the emotional scenes after that point still hit me hard although frustration sometimes hit me harder I still really enjoyed this I m so here for Suirrel Girl cosplay and scrabble with made up words and DD romance

The nerd inner sanctum Soon Cameron finds herself drafted into a DD campaign alongside the jerky shop owner Brody friendly almost flirtatiously so clerk Wyatt handsome Lincoln and her bro Cooper dragged along for good measure But as her secret identity gets and entrenched Cameron's portfolio falls by the wayside and her feelings for Lincoln threaten to make a complicated situation even precario. I wanted to love this book so badly When I picked it up I finished reading it within a day It started off so strong the characters were solid likeable and real The story was familiar and so true to life But what killed this book for me was the ending Not only did the writing uality go down hill in the last half of the book but the ending itself felt like a slap in the face I think I had such a visceral reaction because I saw myself in this book I saw a geeky lonely girl who desperately wanted to be herself But the author s message made me so angry I won t share spoilers here but are you interested scroll lower to hear my specific reasons why I thought I was crazy for not liking this book But I have spoken with several others who disliked the book for the same reasons I did I will not be recommending this book to anyone Nor will I hide my opinion for it WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD I think my biggest complaint with the novel is the fact that Cameron the main female character is shunned and has to APPOLOGIZE when she is discovered to actually be a girl I m sorry that s such a weak story plot She was being threatened doxxed and harassed but its her fault Several of the male characters know of this harassment but she lied about being a boy and suddenly she can t be trusted That makes no sense She also never gets to be angry She doesn t get mad at her brother for blowing her off because he s a total petty asshat She doesn t tell Brody to get over himself for being a slime ball of fragile masculinity She doesn t rip Lincoln a new one for KNOWING about her abuse and still dumping her anyways WHERE IS HER ANGER Why does she apologize Why does she not cut her losses and hang out with people who aren t complete blithering idiots Can we talk about her brother for a second Why on this green earth couldn t Cooper ask out Why once Cam indicated she wasn t interested The whole he has to know you re a girl is CRAP What difference does that make SHE HAD ALREADY SAID NO It shouldn t have mattered There s but I m done I m so mad at this book it literally doesn t deserve the time I m giving it

    I really enjoyed this book and it was a pleasant surprise because admittedly I didn't think I was going to enjoy this book as much as I did When I first started this novel it seemed very different to the content that I would typically read about Although I would consider myself a fairly nerdy female I don't know very much about comics cosplay or Dungeons and Dragons So when all of these things were introduce

    “Chaotic good ones place a high value on free will they always intend to do the right thing even if their methods are haphazard and generally out of sync with the rest of society” Such a fun book I didn’t love You’re Welcome Universe when I read it last year but Choatic Good is one of the best fandomy contemporaries I’ve r
