Chance César is unashamedly and flamboyantly, not straight. Kind of. Well, you see, he’s in that little grey area between ‘boy’ and ‘girl’, which Emmy seems to make a point of talking to him about. At the pumpkin carving contest, which Chance wins every year FYI, Jasper ‘Jazz’ takes the first place prize and a spot in Chance’s sequined heart. Love spells, The Plan, identity crisis’ and parents who just say ‘Whatevs’, Chance has a lot to worry about. But what can’t some bright orange hair dye and a brilliant ‘Hot Topic’ hoodie fix?

I really enjoyed the way that ‘Love Spell’ was about a queer (if that’s the correct term) character who is having an identity crisis. As someone who has always been sure of their sexuality, I can’t relate to Chance as much as I am sure other people who read this book will be able to. I found it kind of hard to start this book, as there were a lot of different words that Emily decided to make up, which I had no idea the meaning of. Until I found the glossary at the back. That helped a lot! Be warned though, there is a bit profanity in this book, but it isn’t too bothering.

I did really enjoy how each of the characters had flaws, but I loved even more how I was also kept in suspense about Jazz’s feelings about Chance. I would, however, go as far to say that some of Chance’s methods of The Plan (making Jazz fall in love with him) were perhaps a little… unorthodox. I certainly did not agree with the ‘hot and cold’ method and thought that a love spell was a little extreme. It all played out well though, and what is the book ‘Love Spell’ without little witchcraft?

I say that to lovers of extremely flamboyant and colorful characters, this is the book for you. For people looking for a book similar to ‘Simon vs the Homosapiens Agenda’ (Love, Simon) then perhaps this isn’t as subtle as you were hoping for. This isn’t fluffy. It's glittery.
