Book Snap #32:

Title: Tradition

Author: Brendan Kiely

Date read: November 5, 2018.

Two Snaps.

Finished late at night in the dark with a flashlight. Used to do that to read past curfew. Did it last night because I had no power. Another powerful YA novel tackling important issues. The traditions of this prep school allow a toxic masculinity that ask both main characters to push up against what’s expected of them at school that demands that they conform.


“…Even in a room full of girls it was all about the guys.”
― Brendan Kiely, Tradition
