Book Review: A Taxonomy of Love by Rachael Allen

This Book on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34227670-a-taxonomy-of-love
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review: In A Taxonomy of Love, a boy named Spencer with Tourette syndrome learns about taxonomies and starts making taxonomies of everything, hoping to fit everything into neat little boxes. But when he meets Hope, everything that has to do with him changes. Hope is the girl who doesn't make fun of him. He starts trying to map out what's happening (love, if you can't guess) and he finds out that life doesn't fit into categories. I think the following is what the book is meant to teach: "Life is messy, and thats what makes it beautiful." This is proven when his relationship with Hope is taken away by his older brother, Dean. Things get messy as Hope is a couple with Dean and then Spencer is a couple with a girl named Jayla. Relationships switch around until... they're back where they started and they aren't in an infinite loop. Hopefully.
The Lesson:
"Life is messy, and that's what makes it beautiful."
