Review

Maybe I need to come to terms with the fact that I am not a fan of contemporary YA. While Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee was well-written, cute, and fun, it didn't grab me.

Tash Hearts Tolstoy tells the story of 17-year old Tash Zelensky and what happens when her low-budget web series hits it big. While I found that aspect of the book the most compelling, it fell away in the plot and the book focused more on Tash's internal struggles and the meaning of friendship.

I was left with questions, mostly because no one wanted to sort out what happened that led to conflict. Instead, they just wanted to turn the page. While that might be realistic, it was unsatisfying for me as a reader.
