Book Review: “Boy Toy”
Reviewed by Allison Robin
Five years earlier, his middle school history teacher had been arrested for an inappropriate relationship with a student. With her release from prison and high school graduation quickly approaching, he has more than enough on his plate.
Trying his best to have a normal social life, Josh struggles to make sense of girls his own age. He has not dated anyone since the trial and feels that no girls will want to date him after the scandal.
When there is finally a prospective candidate, his whole world (that is finally making sense) comes crashing down once again. The book follows Josh on his journey to make sense of it all and make the best of his senior year.
“Boy Toy” was disturbing and enticing at the same time. It would certainly be more appropriate for older teens due to the subject matter, and they would also be more likely to find the book relatable.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, which kept me constantly guessing and, at times, was impossible to put down.
