ARC Review: XLThe advanced reader copy, XL, by Scott Brown, is a novel I definitely recommend reading. The novel tells the story of a teenager, Will Daugherty, who is slightly below five feet tall. Will is really jealous of his stepbrother Drew, who is 6’3, and their friend Monica, who is 5’10. Will secretly loved Monica, but he is very self-conscious about his height, so he has no confidence in himself. But then Will starts to grow, and it happens really fast. There is a whole lot of drama and multiple twists and turns throughout the story. I recommend this book to any teenager and up, for it has some romance in it. As the story goes on, it tends to keeps getting better and better. Many important and surprising questions are answered, and the outcomes are unbelievably shocking! The story is based on a scenario a lot of teenagers dealt with, sometime in their life, which is feeling self-conscious. I would rate XL a 9.5/10, because of how well the story was a plot out.
