Robin Reardon Õ 2 Read Review Í PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Õ Robin Reardon Read Educating Simon Overindulged by her father and struggling with Asperger syndrome And Simon's school project coaching a young student for the national Spelling Bee hits a complication when eleven year old Toby makes a confession there's a girl trapped inside his body and her name is KayHelping Kay find her way begins changing Simon too opening him to different perspectives revealing a strength that's gone untapped unt. Simon Fitzroy Hunt has inherited a few things from his late father His synesthesia the ability to see letters as colors his academic ability and his desire to go to Oxford Unfortunately his mother has met a new man from Boston and since the man has an Asperger s afflicted child they ve decided that it s Simon who ll have his life up rooted The family is moving to Boston despite Simon s objections Simon s even losing his beloved cat because the man s daughter is unable to deal with animals Educating Simon is another of Robin Reardon s titles that suggests that there may be than one way to interpret the title For the most part Simon seems to be largely educating himself admittedly with the help of his parents his school councilors and with his friends and life experiences And its a good thing too He s smarter than most of those around him if not always wiser This is a fascinating look at one transplanted Brit gay boy s transition from wingeing schoolboy to capable adult In Boston his Britishness is just another way he s different There s a reason that most good bildungsroman feature a MC that s just moved Moving gives one a chance to redefine and re invent one s self and for Simon that works out to being a good thing As it s the author s home the Boston location informs this story than the locale in her other works The story even features the Boston Marathon bombing but that tragedy doesn t shanghai the story or feel like it was just a prop It s just another organic part of the tale and it contributes to Simon s development and that of his new sister The supporting characters in this tale TobyKay the 12 year old trans gendered spelling prodigy that Simon tutors Percy his Asperger s afflicted sister Toby s father and mother even Ned the cook are all given development than supporting characters in many modern works and as a result they make the main character s journey even interesting Even Simon s decision to lose his virginity is dealt with in an interesting way that serves the overall thread of Simon s growth into adulthood Michael the ex possibly gay now straight edged Italian Art Student and Luther the obviously experienced but a bit selfish bi guy both had me rooting for them at one point neither is painted as just a two dimensional The contrast between the two just served to make the romantic aspects of the story even betterSimon s character grows He s continually examining his own life and his POV changes as he attains a adult perspective So much so that I was surprised when I went back to an earlier part in search of a plot detail that I d missed I highly recommend this Robin has crafted another smart charming read about a teenager on the cusp of coming into his own It works as a coming of age story It works as a character s coming out story and the romance angle is there as well It s yet another of Robin s tales where the story reaches a logical end but we would be content to see the story continue Two confessions I ve always been a bit of an Anglophile so Simon had my sympathy from the startand two I got a free copy of this from the author in exchange for an honest review
