Book Review: My Kind of Crazy

Title My Kind of Crazy
Author Robin Reul
Release Date April 5, 2016

Despite the best of intentions, seventeen-year old, wisecracking Hank Kirby can’t quite seem to catch a break. It’s not that he means to screw things up all the time, it just happens. A lot. Case in point: his attempt to ask out the girl he likes literally goes up in flames when he spells “Prom” in sparklers on her lawn…and nearly burns down her house.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, Peyton Breedlove, a brooding loner and budding pyromaniac, witnesses the whole thing. Much to Hank’s dismay, Peyton takes an interest in him—and his “work.” The two are thrust into an unusual friendship, but their boundaries are tested when Hank learns that Peyton is hiding some dark secrets, secrets that may change everything he thought he knew about Peyton.

I loved this book. Just absolutely loved it!

My Kind of Crazy has so much going for it. It's fun, quirky, cute, and made me laugh. It also touches (albeit not in depth) on some more heavy matters like mental health and having absentee parents. There's a perfect balance between fun and serious that adds to it's realism and relatability.

Robin Reul's writing was fantastic. The story drew me in and held my attention from the very beginning until the last page. The characters were so interesting. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

I highly recommend My Kind of Crazy.


5 out of 5 stars
