Review: Love, Creekwood by Becky Albertalli

Author Becky Albertalli returns to Creekwood and the Simonverse once again with Love, Creekword, a novella told in the form of emails between the four main characters from Simon vs the Homo Sapien's Agenda and Leah on the Offbeat. The group are now all at college. Simon is in Philadelphia and Bram is New York and the pair miss one another like crazy. Meanwhile, Leah and Abby are not only at college together, but they're sharing a dorm. The pair are in love, happy and worried as all heck about Simon who doesn't seem to be coping. 

And that's basically it. 

What had the potential to be an interesting story about the challenges College students face in their first year away from home lacks any real substance or plot. On the plus side, it was fun to see what all of the characters got up to following their happily ever afters. And, apparently, the author is donating her royalties from this book to charity. 

Meanwhile, I'm wondering what will happen in Creekwood next seeing as the books have also spawned the film  Love, Simon and the television series Love, Victor 

Time will tell, I guess.
