    The Scarecrow & George C

    The Scarecrow & George C is the third book of Mia Kerick's I have read, and whilst I didn't enjoy it as much as The Princess of Baker Street, I still thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these characters. Van (Donovan) is the Scarecrow in this scenario. Through childhood trauma, he is too scared of people to behave 'normally'. So he pushes everyone away, makes them afraid of him, and then feels the loss inside when they believe his facade. George C doesn't believe it though. He sees past that false veneer to the young man inside, scared, hurt, and oh so alone. Both Van and George C have a past though, which could affect their future. With an interesting and sometimes sorrowful story, this book gripped me from the start. I wanted to see Van change, become all he could be. With George C by his side, it seemed a possibility. And with Van by his side, the world was an oyster for George C. One of the best things about this book was seeing their relationship slowly change, as their feelings did. There were no editing or grammatical errors in this book, and the characters were excellent. With quirkiness and romance, tragic pasts and hopeful futures, this was a great read I have no hesitation in recommending. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

    Great book for Pride Month!

    First of all, this was the best book to read for Pride Month. Second of all, this is just a good book in general. Van and George C are my favorite part of this book. They are written so well they become flesh on the page. It’s easy to understand them as human beings and to get why they make certain decisions. Both of them go through very dark and realistic moments throughout the story and it makes you wonder why this society lets horrible things happen out of fear and discrimination. The writing is simple but well-structured. The ending felt a little rushed, but other than that the pacing worked perfectly. Thank you NetGalley for the ARC of this book, I enjoyed it a lot. If you love stories about overcoming fear, this is the book for you. If you love queer stories, this is definitely the book for you. Do be reminded that this book contains strong topics like abuse and sexual harassment, so if that’s a trigger for you, this book might not be your cup of tea.

    The Scarecrow is a very intriguing character...

    I have always had a soft spot for emotionally damaged, and broken characters so I was immediately intrigued by the description of this book and it's characters. It took almost two chapters for me to adjust to being directly addressed by the narrators but in the end I think it worked as a method of giving the reader a little more insight into the characters. I appreciate the fact that the connection between George C and Van didn't feel like insta-love although it was something that happened quickly. This was my second Mia Kerick book and I will definitely be looking for more.
