First & Then

Emma Mills

First & ThenThe first novel by Emma Mills is a high school set tale of families, friendships, loves and finding yourself.
Ms Mills is better known to me as the vlogger elmify. Her videos are usually sweet, goofy but always underpinned by her enormous smarts.
The book also matches that pattern.
The book feels like it takes place in a recognizably real world filled with real people. Lead characters Devon and Foster are particularly well drawn.
However, there's just something about this book that never quite sparks into life. For all their reality I never felt invested in the character's lives.
It's still worth reading and I expect better books to come from her over the years.

Rating: B
