4 Stars


Sims pens a wonderful, coming of age story in Getting By. I haven't read work from this author before, and I really enjoyed it. Carter is the main character, and he is not only worried about regular teenage or high school things, but his sexuality. Carter is the target for bullies, and this story is very dramatic. I enjoyed Carter's story, self-discovery is a big thing, especially for a young person. Carter is stronger than he realizes, and more confident on the inside rather than the outside, but he is on this journey that will affect his life. It is a very well-written story, and I really liked it. Such an inspiring story. This read is more than just words on a page. With triumphs and tragedies and the in betweens, this story is one to be read. Getting By is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews. I look forward to reading many more stories by this author.
