Saving Montgomery Sole Read Online Free - In sight not see
black light not be
This is the curious instruction that comes with the Eye of Know, the possibly powerful crystal amulet that Montgomery Sole buys online for $5.99. It’s also the next topic of discussion at Mystery Club (members: Monty and her two best friends, Thomas and Naoki), dedicated to the exploration of the strange and unexplained.
When Monty wears the Eye of Know, strange things happen, all targeted at people she despises. Maybe it will help Monty take down her newest enemy, a preacher who has come to save her town from so-called sinners—sinners like Monty’s moms. Or will its mysterious powers mean the end of the friendships Monty cherishes most?
Mariko Tamaki has created a thoughtful, funny, and painfully honest story about family, religion, ignorance, and other unsolved high school mysteries.

Saving Montgomery Sole could have been an incredibly important book... if the narrator hadn't sounded 12 instead of 16. Montgomery Sole thinks she is a much better person than everyone else she goes to school with, besides her two best friends. It promotes the worst kind of girl hate which I foun...

17-year-old Montgomery Sole lives with her sister, Tesla, and her two moms in a small town in Northern California. She attends school and runs the “mystery club” with her two best friends, Thomas, a very out gay guy, and Naoki, another girl whose family, like Monty’s, is partly Canadian. Monty’s...

Actual Rating: 3.5*
This was a quick and easy read and I really enjoyed it. I thought Monty was a really great character and super relatable. I really liked that she had a diverse friend group and that we got to see from her perspective all the things that were affecting them - slurs, people in ge...

When I found out that Mariko Tamaki had a book coming out, I was so excited! I was curious to see how Tamaki’s storytelling style would differ from This One Summer and it helped that the book had a stunning cover.
Montgomery Sole’s voice is tru...

I did enjoy this book because I think it tackled a teenager tantrum in a realistic way, but part of me was also disappointed that some of the rhetoric was that Montgomery is "not that kind of girl" compared to the other teenagers in the book. And I get it, because I felt like an outcast when I wa...

This was lovely! I particularly enjoyed the thoughtful look at the clash between queer families and fundamentalist Christianity. That part made me tear up a bit. Mariko Tamaki is a treasure.

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley.
When I read YA books, I of course try to think of not only my reaction as an adult, but how I would have felt about it as a teenager and how the teenagers I know would feel about it. In this book's case, I just couldn't separate my opinions from how I...

This is a smart, funny, sad, frustrating, and cool book. It started off a little slow, and then picked up speed from there. I wavered between 3 stars and 4 for the slow beginning, but settled on 4 for how it picked up as it went along.
The story follows a typical teenager, who has two moms and a l...

Admittedly this book had to grow on me as in the first sections the age of the main character's voice confused me. I still feel like the first chapters were a bit off in that way; it just really did not feel like Monty was 16. But after that it felt settled into a young YA and was a lovely realis...

Montgomery Sole has found her comfort zone. She's always felt like an outsider, as the only person in her small town with two moms, but she has found two people who get her. And they've even started a club at their school! The Mystery Club, they call it. Where they investigate unexplained phenome...
