Book Reports (2) ...

Because I've had trouble keeping up with my reading, I'm going to change my book report style a bit. Now I'm aiming to write reviews on Goodreads and simply post the link here. But I'm also going to change my star system:

* = Just not for me
** = Interesting premise but not engaging enough to complete
*** = Okay; didn't love but liked enough to finish (or at least skim)
**** = Good; liked the writing style and/or the plot enough to stick with it
***** = Loved; will definitely keep and/or re-read

***
Running with Lions, by Julian Winters -- YA contemporary (LGBTQIA themes and romance); story about a bisexual soccer player who falls for his ex-best friend (that he hasn't been close to for ~7 years) during a soccer camp over the summer between their junior and senior years in high school
