The Avery Shaw Experiment
The Avery Shaw Experiment - Kelly Oram

I loved Grayson and Libby, and the plot was pretty good. The rest of the cast were pretty cool too. (I look forward to reading Libby and Owen's story). I loved the slow romance and Grayson's outlook on life.

I'd love to read more books by this author.

The Avery Shaw Experiment
The Avery Shaw Experiment - Kelly Oram This book was really cute in some parts but incredibly irritating in others. I liked that Paige and Chloe were popular but sweet, allowed to express their sexuality without shaming, and overall really good examples of how supporting characters should be in books. I liked the natural, teasing dialogue between Grayson and Avery, but I wasn't very impressed with the overall "villain" vibe that came off of Aiden at times.

Not to mention, I'm not crazy about the love triangle - especially not if it's two brothers fighting over the same girl, and letting her successfully come between them. I know this happens in the real world, but I don't have to enjoy it. There were also certain things that made me think "really" because the world of chicklit loves nothing more than reaching past the realistic boundaries of probability to make sure that everything is tied together with a nice, pretty bow.

Worst of all, I found that there was a lot of body shaming in certain parts of this book, along with perpetuation of negative stereotypes. Grayson was very piggish toward Avery from beginning to end, thinking of her more as a physical thing or a piece of meat or something than a human being he actually genuinely loved. I was suspicious in his first chapter that he was going to be an airheads misogynist and while I wasn't entirely right, I certainly wasn't wrong. Generally speaking, the way he had a habit of objectifying the girls around him to be rather... off putting. I didn't like that he compared the girls to one another like they were show dogs, either.

This was a good book to give a quick read to, definitely some light, airy entertainment that didn't call forth too much emotion but also didn't make me feel like I wasted my time. Honestly, I could take it or leave it.

{Review}The Avery Shaw Experiment
 


The Avery Shaw Experiment

Author:  Kelly Oram
Pages: 278
Publisher: Bluefields
Release Date: May 4th,2013


When Avery Shaw’s heart is shattered by her life-long best friend, she chooses to deal with it the only way she knows how—scientifically. 

The state science fair is coming up and Avery decides to use her broken heart as the topic of her experiment. She’s going to find the cure. By forcing herself to experience the seven stages of grief through a series of social tests, she believes she will be able to get over Aiden Kennedy and make herself ready to love again. But she can’t do this experiment alone, and her partner (ex partner!) is the one who broke her heart.

Avery finds the solution to her troubles in the form of Aiden’s older brother Grayson. The gorgeous womanizer is about to be kicked off the school basketball team for failing physics. He’s in need of a good tutor and some serious extra credit. But when Avery recruits the lovable Grayson to be her “objective outside observer,” she gets a whole lot more than she bargained for, because Grayson has a theory of his own: Avery doesn’t need to grieve. She needs to live. And if there’s one thing Grayson Kennedy is good at, it’s living life to the fullest



 
 

As of recently,I caved in and finally decided to get a kindle instead of a nook so that I could read more ebooks from netgalley and amazon. While scrolling threw the numerous books they had, I had decided to see some of the best sellers and stumbled upon The Avery Shaw Experiment.  Upon first look the cover was super cute and so I decided to investigate further by reading the summary and it drew me in. I expected this story to be cute, fun and even a little funny and this book defiantly lived up to my expectations.  

Avery Shaw has been Aiden's best friend since before birth when their mom's met at a prenatal yoga class and (grossly) threw up on each other. Ever since then their moms and Avery and Aiden have been best friends. Now seventeen,Avery has finally realized that she likes Aiden. While Aiden,unaware, decides to break the news that he believes they need time apart. Avery is distraught and stumbles into Grayson, Aiden's older brother, he comforts her and eventually is forced to partner up with Avery for extra credit in science class. Avery is now faced with the challenge of a life without a bestfriend and a life full of Grayson. 

Just the thought of a love triangle with two brothers made me really want to read this. I mean come on that has to at least has to make you a little curious! With this being said, I know that there are a lot of love triangles with two brothers. However, this story was very believable and full of nerds. Need I say more? 

Okay well just in case I do,the characters in this book made this story and I know what your thinking -- well of course they do! The characters always make or break a story, but this story had the most amazing characters that were supper funny, nice and just over all amazing there are just no words at this moment to describe them. The members of the science club were so inviting and accepted Grayson for who he was even though they knew he wasn't particularly the smartest person and even tried to help him out by breaking it down for him and going bowling. Every single character was just so charming that you couldn't help, but love em'.
