4.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT!!!!❤️❤️❤️
By SWEATA BACHYAS on 5 September 2021
Q: What was your last YA novel?
A: Mine was Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer!

Mini review ✨
My ratings: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

“Call It What You Want” is a story of two teens – Rob & Maegan who are avoided by the society like a plague. They both are judged and disliked by everyone in their class as well as their neighborhood.

I loved Rob’s character the most, he was so suffocated and miserable with the turn of events that his life became a living hell both inside his house and outside. He was blamed for his father’s mistake, which he had no clue about. Though he worked as an intern in his father’s workplace, he never came to know any of his father’s initiative.

Maegan too was judged without knowing the whole story. Every mistake has a proper explanation and she was never given a chance to explain that. We all are humans, and we all have the right to commit mistakes, but that doesn’t mean you should be judged every damn time!

You’ll love this book if you’re into:
🍂Teen romance
🍂Dark plot with an incredible twist
🍂strong female protagonist
🍂easy, light-hearted read
🍂popular boy & nerdy girl
🍂revolves around friendship, betrayal, bitter truths of society, family issues & morals.
🍂second chances
🍂No steamy scenes/spiciness

Trigger Warnings: attempted suicide

I highly recommend this book, it’s a beautiful story that’ll definitely make you cry and sob both with happiness and melancholy 🥺🥺

Call it what you want is a story of two teens Rob and Maegan who are socially rejected. Rob's dad was caught embezzling funds from half the town. Rob worked as an intern where his father was working. But he was unaware that his father was stealing money from his clients resulting all the money and property were seized by the police. His father attempts suicide leaving Rob and his mother to look after him. Once he was a popular guy now a loner who lost everything his friends, his status, even his family.

Now, We have Maegan who was a typical overachiever. She cheated in her SAT exam. She was blamed for the cancellation of exam. Things get more complicated when her sister comes home pregnant from college. They both were dealing with tensions in parent-child relationship.

They both judged, rejected, disliked by the society and their class fellows.
Both Rob and Maegan got partnered for a calculus project. They were awkward with each other in the beginning, but in a very short time they became very good friends. And you will read about the friendship of two flawed characters throughout the story.

I loved Rob so much. I was quickly connected with the Rob's story. He was so depressed and suffocated. I was deeply touched by his thoughts. I know cheating can never be justified but Rob was judged for his father's mistakes. Maegen did a mistake but it's not something that defines her. Most of the time people judged the situation without knowing the whole story. It's very important to hold off until you know the facts.

Dark plot with an incredible twist. This was such a good read, I couldn't put it down. There was sadness, harsh truths of society, friendship and all written with a very fine hand and was very satisfying. I enjoyed this book immensely and I highly recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Heartwarming Story
By paperbacktomes on 15 June 2021
I went into this one expecting a YA romance, but what I read was far more angsty than I expected. I wouldn’t call this as a romance novel, but a YA fiction because it focused more on Rob and Maegan’s family and peer issues. Maegan’s relationship with her sister reminded me of Hani and Nikhita from Hani and Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating. I liked how she stood up for Samantha when was almost on the verge of breaking down in public. She took her out when she needed to escape their parents questions and sat with her when she need someone besides her. Rob and Maegan were so similar in many ways. Their late night homework sessions were filled with coffee and family talks. The amount of regret these two carried was almost palpable. In a nutshell, Call It What You Want is a story of two teens trying to learn from their mistakes and finding love and hope in a world filled with guilt and regrets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really, call it what you want!
By Ananya Canakapalli on 6 July 2021
This one is a beautiful contemporary novel which is based on struggles in life and how the characters overcome them. An array of emotions like friendship, romance, loss and a lot other things are drawn out.

Well, at first glance, I thought it was a pure romance book but no, it's not. It's better than that because it focuses on a plot.

I really, really liked the author's writing. It was modern, quick and to the point. Her writing made this a fast-paced read.

And how beautiful the cover is, wow!

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommendable
By Archi on 28 April 2021
I really loved the complications and different perspectives of the story and it was so easy to get what the author wants to convey. Ofcouse it was a happy ending but to be honest the ending felt kind of a rush. The climax was amazing but the way things turned out it seemed unrealistic and way too easy. 4 stars just because of the ending felt rushed and unrealistic

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your usual fluffy YA contemporary
By Sabi on 15 September 2022
Brigid Kemmerer is one of my favourite fantasy authors and I'd so much expectations on her contemporary books too and this one turned out to be a favourite book of mine.

Maegan, the daughter of a cop cheated on her SAT and has been called a cheater since then and Rob's dad embezzled money from his neighbours and now Rob is paying for what his dad did. Maegan and Rob have been partnered in an assignment and we go through how their lives actually are and it makes us question things. The main takeaway of the book is how one choice doesn't decide your whole future.

#callitwhatyouwant has
✨Family relationships
✨Amazing flawed characters
✨The friendship b/w MCs and especially b/w Rob and Owen's
✨ Sisterhood
✨ Bullying
✨Not a fluffy YA contemporary
✨Romance is the subplot
✨Will make you question your moral choices

Highly recommend!!
