Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan

Cover via Goodreads

Rating: 3.5/5 stars.

This is a difficult book to rate with stars. I liked so many things about it; how one of the most traumatic events of this generation was explored, and yet the book was not dramatic itself, how through three teens’ perspectives the profound effects of 9/11 were pondered and reflected upon, and the relationships that formed between the characters themselves.

The only change I would have made was making the book more about the characters – their voices were authentic, and filled with wisdom people their age do not usually possess. Yet they seemed a little flat in the sense I could not fully empathize with them, even through what they had witnessed.

Probably my favorite novel by David Levithan so far.
