Waiting on Cut Both Ways by Carrie Mesrobian

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

Please give me...

Cut Both Ways by Carrie Mesrobian

Publisher: HarperCollins
Published Date: 1 September 2015
Pre-Order: Amazon | The Book Depository

Will Caynes never has been good with girls. At seventeen, he’s still waiting for his first kiss. He’s certainly not expecting it to happen in a drunken make-out session with his best friend, Angus. But it does and now Will’s conflicted—he knows he likes girls, but he didn’t exactly hate kissing a guy.

Then Will meets Brandy, a cute and easy-to-talk-to sophomore. He’s totally into her too—which proves, for sure, that he’s not gay. So why does he keep hooking up with Angus on the sly?

Will knows he can’t keep seeing both of them, but besides his new job in a diner, being with Brandy and Angus are the best parts of his whole messed-up life. His divorced parents just complicate everything. His father, after many half-baked business ventures and endless house renovations, has started drinking again. And his mom is no help—unless loading him up with a bunch of stuff he doesn’t need plus sticking him with his twin half-sisters counts as parenting. He’s been bouncing between both of them for years, and neither one feels like home.

Deciding who to love, who to choose, where to live. Whichever way Will goes, someone will get hurt. Himself, probably the most.

  1. Sounds pretty good and potentially pretty emotional. I like that it sounds like an interesting portrayal of sexual identity. I met a few teens who could have used a book like this growing up.

    1. You're absolutely right, Laura. I don't think I've ever read a book about a character struggling to accept themselves as bisexual - at least, that's what I think this one sounds like. It's definitely interesting. Thank you for stopping by.
