All Our Worst Ideas by Vicky Skinner

You know that feeling when you read an awesome book and it so good it just makes you giddy?

That's how I felt when I read All Our Worst Ideas.

The story is told from two different perspectives, Oliver's and Amy's. Oliver taking a gap year and gathering the courage to tell him, mom, he doesn't want to go to college. Meanwhile, he works at a records store.

Amy is a senior at high school and works extra hard to get awesome grades and be a valedictorian. She has her eyes set on Stanford and is determined to get in, even if no one else believes in her. When her stepfather loses his job, mom tells her to get a job. She loves music and is drawn to the same story when Oliver works.

They work together a lot, and veery slowly grow closer together. He is all in, but she is not so sure.

It's such a cute story, of getting out of your own way, finding your path in life and love.

Highly recommend it!!!

Two teens who have nothing in common work together at a record store in All Our Worst Ideas, a powerful and voice-driven YA novel from Vicky Skinner.

When Amy, on her way to becoming valedictorian of her graduating class and getting accepted to her dream school, gets dumped by her long-term boyfriend, she takes a job at a record store to ease the pain. She needs a distraction, badly.

Oliver, Amy’s record store co-worker, isn’t so sure about Amy—his complete opposite—but what he is sure of is his decision not to go to college. He just can’t figure out how to tell his mother.

As they work late-night shifts at the record store, Amy and Oliver become friends and then confidantes and then something more, but when Amy has a hard time letting go of what she thought was her perfect future with her ex, she risks losing the future she didn’t even know she wanted with Oliver.

happy reading,
