"My most favorite thing to read in a book is a hero who pines, and Flip gave really freaking good pine. He pined are years and years. I *felt* his yearning. " Author Julia Wolf
"Man, I am a sucker for bad boys with a heart of gold and MCG gave me exactly THAT." Sonal
"Skater Boy combined so many of my favorite things beautifully into one unique novel. Strong and defiant, yet compassionate heroine. Obsessive alpha male. Angst. The down-to-the-bone, soul-crushing kind of love. The diversity in this book among its characters is one to thrive for. Once Skater Boy was over, I couldn't pick up anything for days." Kris Cant' Even

“You can’t tell a shadow to leave. Even if the shadow is bad, even if the shadow ties you to a past best forgotten.”
I never read any blurbs or teasers or spoilers. Sometimes I regret that decision, but not this time! It was so wonderful to go in blind.
Tweetie is the only girl that Rebel Gods have ever let to stay in the Patchwork House. They are a family, not the traditional one, but family nonetheless. She left, but now she is back.
There are secrets that Sweetie wants to reveal. There are half-truths that she wants to know.
Meet Tweetie and the other residents of Patchwork House. Fell in love with the Rebel Gods. Live with them in 90's style.
Can't wait to read the next book of the series!
One of things I believe the author excelled at is character invention. From the main Patchwork House founders to smaller characters like Penelope, Sparky, Bacon, and Pants, she created characters that made me want to learn more. Even a couple characters we only met once or twice peaked my interest. I loved escaping into this world and can’t wait to find out which of the rebel gods I get to learn about next. Just remember I called dibs on Romeo.
I felt like the author was going for some type of mysterious storytelling that would captivate the reader with all of the "secrets" that were hinted at. But for me the one big secret was very obvious, and all the little hints just made entire sections unclear. There was too much going on without enough information to actually make sense. At least for me. And also the big shocking scene wasn't all that...shocking, I guess I'll say. Like it just wasn't something that was a super big deal to me and I felt like it was blown out of proportion by everyone in the book. It also led to a semi plot hole with something the heroine said about that scene that was never revisited so again, made no sense.
I clearly had issues with the book and if you had asked me in the beginning I would have said it was a lost cause. But I kept reading and I can say that it definitely picked up some and the end of the middle of the story was really good. When Flip and Tweetie started to overshadow the confusion I got way more invested in their story and I started to enjoy it. I liked them as a couple so in the end I'm glad that I gave this book a try.
There's also a lot of unknown information about the other boys of Patchwork that actually has me intrigued about the upcoming stories. This book might not have worked out super well for me but I'm definitely going to give this author another try since I did like the overall story.

Tweetie is a very naive, sheltered girl, even though she’s grown up around 3 of the 4 Rebel Gods. These guys keep her sheltered by not having real and proper conversations with her. Every time she asks an important question they either divert the conversation or ignore it altogether. When the events of the accident finally come to light, they still don’t talk properly but at least they finally make sentences. I liked how this was set in the 80’s. The discrimination against ‘their kind’ felt genuine and something I remember when I was a kid.
I’m hoping King actually uses his voice in his book but I look forward to Daniel and Romeos’ stories.
