Book Review: Keeping Her Secret
Posted on 30 June 2018
Keeping Her Secret is my first lesbian YA romance, and I liked it. Riya and Courtney have a history. They used to be childhood friends who grew apart after an awkward kiss at thirteen. Now, four years later, they end up in the same Summer Camp (and the same room). Courtney, who flirts recklessly with boys now, has never forgotten Riya's kiss and struggles to deal with her sexuality. Riya, on the other hand, is still attracted to Courtney but tries to keep a distance.
Keeping Her Secret was a fast read, so extra points for that. The writing style is very similar to a mainstream romance novel (adult) with a lot of focus on the characters' feelings. The entire story takes place at the Summer Camp with a fixed set of characters. My favorite side characters were Colt and Dee, and the others did a good job of moving the story along. While the story was tropey, the romance played out well.
Overall, KHS was a quick, fluffy summer read that I enjoyed.
