Ike Gretel for job in fairyland gift shopSuper hot coworker and boyfriend back home Too thrilli. THANK U NEXTImminent swearing is imminent so here s your obligatory NSFW warningSo y all should know before I launch into this rant that I am definitely within the target audience I read almost exclusively YA and I am trash for books aboutset at theme parks due to the fact that I work at a theme park and have recently become obsessed with Rollercoaster Tycoon So I should have loved this or at least felt rather amicable about it But no This book is an absolute shitshow and I am literally going to toss it into the recycling bin once I finish writing this review because there is nothing good about this book and if it gets recycled it might be able to get taken apart and made into something that s actually useful Oh and I should also add here Usually when I review a book even if it s hella negative I can still see how other people might enjoy it and so I would usually give a disclaimer of this is my own personal opinion blah blah if you like this book you do you but THERE IS LITERALLY NO REDEEMING UALITY ABOUT THIS BOOK IT IS ABSOLUTE GARBAGE IT ROMANTICIZES ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS AND I AM JUDGING ANYONE WHO READS THIS REVIEW AND SAYS BUT THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD NO NO IT IS NOT IT IS TRASH AND IT IS GOING IN THE TRASH AND YOU CANNOT CHANGE MY MIND To this book s credit I do acknowledge that the back advertised the love triangle thing I have been known to hate the love triangle trope because it s like GAWD JUST MAKE UP YOUR MIND ALREADY YOU INDECISIVE BITCH I don t mind a love triangle as long as it s done well like in The Hunger Games when Katniss had to choose between Peeta or Gale but she literally could not do either because choosing Gale would put her family at risk and choosing Peeta would be like sacrificing her personal morals because she is only pretending to love him for the cameras but if there is a love triangle it will never be my favorite part of the book and I will need extra shipping bait in order to not trash it in my review So joke s on me for picking up a book with a trope I know I can t stand But what the back did NOT advertise was the hate to love Hate to tolerance that Megan thinks is love is like it Put a note on that I ll come back to it And I also acknowledge that I did like the first couple of chapters in that Megan wrote in her notebook the pros and cons of a certain decision in order to figure out what she wanted to do But put a Post It note on that too because I m not done talking about this Hawthorne kinda shot herself in the foot with this concept later on in the book and I ll come back to this aspect in a bitOkay so remember how earlier I said I work at a theme park Yeah obviously Hawthorne has never done the same herself That s fine working at a theme park isn t for everyone and sometimes you just don t have the opportunity or skills to do the job But when you decide to write a novel about someone who works at a theme park you d better do your fucking research because you will inevitably get people like me reading your book Did Hawthorne ever bother to interview anyone who works at a theme park Or watch the multitude of Youtube channels that are out there by creators who talk about how they work at Disneyland and what the job is like Or even just do a bit of Googling I think not because on page 35 we get our first red flag this is Megan telling her older sister Sarah about her new job I laughed Sarah I had to sign a blood oath that I would ask for only one weekend off all summerUh WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK First off I m pretty sure she s joking about the blood oath thing please someone tell me she s joking here but second WHATHTEFUCKKINDOFJOBWOULDMAKESUCHADEMAND I have worked several part time jobs to this date and only one of them actually made such a demand of me which turned out to be bullshit because our boss was a douche who tried to cheat me out of my hard earned pay and outright refused me the ability to seek medical attention when I got what turned out to be pneumonia He s just lucky I didn t sue his ass for all it was worth And David if you re reading this yes I am talking about you I m still salty about Toshi refusing to let me go to the doctor and making me clean the office while I was coughing my lungs out and because he was your direct subordinate his decision reflects on you and I don t feel any regret saying this because I m not using you as a reference for any future jobs anyway so HA But this Megan needing to sign a blood oath to not take off too much time should have been a HUGE RED FLAG if not for Megan then for Sarah who should have told Megan to uit IMMEDIATELY get her arse home and find a new job because the theme park was doing some shady business Of course if you re going to work a job whether it be part or full time you have to be able to work a certain amount of hours and you don t want to take too much time off but this is implying no this is OUTRIGHT SAYING that Megan wouldn t be allowed to go home even in the case of an emergency or something I m getting literal flashbacks to the aforementioned job where I was outright refused medical attention And because this moment reminded me of that awful job experience I m sinning this book regardless for that On to the next thing You remember how I said that Sarah didn t tell Megan to get her butt home immediately because her bosses were doing some shady business Yeah Sarah SUCKS I mean all the characters suck but she sucks the most Throughout the ENTIRE book she s a whiny little petulant child who can t do anything without her younger sister by her side even though she s an ADULT about to get MARRIED She can t pick out a wedding dress even if she s got her best friend and her mother helping her Megan has to uit her job which putting aside the shady business thing for a minute is a STUPID reason for Megan to uit so she can go home and help Sarah with the wedding Instead of y know Sarah TALKING to their mother like the ADULT she is Oh I WISH I could say that Sarah was the worst character in this book but she was only mildly annoying compared to some of the others I ll come back to this Back to the theme park inaccuracy thing Page 147 we re having a conversation with Megan her love interest Parker uotation marks are intentional there and a few other park workers They re talking about the recent rainstorm that caused the park to shut down and Parker who runs the Magnum Force roller coaster starts talking about how we talked about trying to get the people down but man do you know how high that thing isApparently they just left the riders at the top of the lift hill for several hours in the pouring rain SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW THIS THEME PARK IS STILL IN BUSINESS BECAUSE LAWSUITS There is LITERALLY ONE Youtube video Hawthorne would have needed to watch to know all she needed to know about roller coasters to be able to write a character who operates one Screencaps from Roller Coaster Safety Explained via Coaster Bot on YoutubeAnd yes I did say earlier that I work at a theme park and yes I do operate the rides but due to the fact that our main customers are small children who come with their parents we have only family friendly rides like merry go rounds Ferris wheels and a mini train that clocks a maximum of about 8 MPH So how come someone like me who has never operated a roller coaster in her life and is only using her knowledge of how small kiddie rides are operated knows about roller coaster operations than a young man who is in charge of a roller coaster and an author who is writing about said young man operating a roller coaster Fellow writers take note even if you don t know as much as the experts in a certain subject you should know at least as much as your readers so you don t come off looking like a giant jackass who s just taking advantage of a particular setting in order to draw in readers Now if the underlying story had been at least tolerable this might have been one of those three star reads where I was like Haha this book is totally inaccurate to the setting but I guess the cheesy romance is kinda cute so I ll give it three stars and toss it to the thrift store so someone else can love it BUT THIS IS LITERALLY THE WORST BOOK I VE EVER READ AND I READ THE MEMORY KEEPER S DAUGHTER WHICH TURNS A GIRL WITH DOWN SYNDROME INTO A PLOT DEVICE THIS IS WORSE THAN THATDear authors can we please stop with the romances especially in kidlit where 1 Guy decides girl is cute2 Guy stalks girl and harasses her3 Girl tells guy to eff off4 Guy stalks and harasses girl bonus points if he blackmails her in the process5 Girl decides she loves guy6 Guy gets girlBECAUSE THAT IS LITERALLY WHAT HAPPENS HERE CAN THIS PLEASE NOT BE A THING ANYMORE PLEASE I AM BEGGING YOU THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER GOOD WAYS TO MAKE TWO CHARACTERS FALL IN LOVE Yeah if you couldn t tell this is how Megan and Parker fall in love I say that in uotation marks because if what they have is love then I m a unicorn Parker stalks and harasses her ignores her when she tells him to eff off gaslights her about her disinterest in roller coasters and insists that it s because of a phobia and then KISSES HER AGAINST HER WILL and she just falls for him I mean a relationship that pushes you out of your comfort zone is one thing but this is just downright BULLSHIT Oh and don t even get me STARTED on Nick who is Megan s boyfriend from back home At first he seems like kind of a sweet guy and you think that it ll end by Megan and Nick spending the summer apart growing self confident as individuals then reuniting at the end of the summer and forging a stronger bond than they ever did before And if that had been the way this book ended that would have really fixed a lot of the problems in my eyes and maybe earned it than just a measly one star But Nick OH MY GOD NICK COULD YOU BE ANY MORE CHAUVINISTIC He starts getting hella petulant with Megan over the phone because he s annoyed that they can t share any physical affection I m not even going to TOUCH that garbage pile of bullshit and then eventually gets so annoyed that he gives Megan an ultimatum to either uit her job and come back home or break up with him Allow me to repeat OH MY GOD NICK COULD YOU BE ANY MORE CHAUVINISTIC And how does this book end you may ask Megan breaks up with Nick good riddance but then instead of realizing that she s a strong independent woman and both the potential boyfriends she s been thinking about treat her like shit so neither of them deserve her unless they re willing to treat her with respect she just starts dating Parker because I don t have to write in my Decision Maker to figure out decisions about him Girl I WISH you would write in your decision maker notebook Maybe then you d see how he treats you like absolute SHIT and you need to have self respect and tell him to eff the fuck off In conclusion this book is trash it s going in the trash you can t change my mind and it glorifies abusive relationships and is not worth the paper it s printed on so the only honor it deserves is the honor of being the first book I actually put in the garbage rather than just tossing to the thrift store or giving to someone else Emporium obligatory NSFW warningSo y all should know before I launch into this rant that I am definitely within the target audience I read
