Book Review – Kate In Waiting by Becki Albertalli

I must start this post with an apology to The Write Reads gang, and Dave. They had originally scheduled me for this post on the seventeenth of April, but I am posting this one day later. Given the Covid situation in India right now, I could only finish reading this book now and had to delay this post.

Kate In Waiting is one of those light hearted teen rom-coms that take your mind away from the hard times that is life today. And I found I liked it alot. The book is all about Kate, a teenager, actively involved in the drama club at her school. Her life, her family, her friends and the traipsing through the obstacle course that is teenage love.

What I loved about Kate In Waiting was that it dealt with everything that encompasses adolescence. First love, fighting and making up with best friends, friendships and relationships that stay and wither, family that grows apart and family bonds that grow stronger. The awkwardness and that thrill, the heartbreak and all that, that comes with any such relationhip. An absolute delight to read.

A few chapters in, I felt that Kate In Waiting was being very verbose about Kate and her everyday life. Too many words, too little content. However, that is exactly what most teenager is. I certainly was walking around with my head in the clouds. I cannot complain about the realistic situation in the book, can I?

On the whole, Kate In Waiting is a very lovely read that got me through a few bleak days. It was all that warm and fuzzy feeling in the last few chapters, where everything is “peachy and perfect”.

Definitely recommend to those who love a good teenage rom-com with all the bells and whistles.
