What They Say:

Gideon “always” has a plan. It includes running for class president, becoming head of the yearbook committee, and having his choice of colleges. It does NOT include falling head over heels for his best friend, Kyle. It s a distraction, it s pointless Kyle is already dating the head cheerleader, Ruby and Gideon doesn t know what to do.
Kyle “finally” feels like he has a handle on life. He has a wonderful girlfriend, a best friend willing to debate the finer points of “Lord of the Rings,” and social acceptance as captain of the basketball team. So when both Ruby and Gideon start acting “really” weird, just as his spot on the team is threatened, Kyle can t quite figure out what he did wrong.
Sandy Hall, the author of “A Little Something Different, ” is back with her signature wit in this quirky and heartfelt LGBT YA novel.”

My Review

Sandy Hall is such a wonderful author. Her books are full of such warmth and wit, and her books are so quick to read. Her latest is Been Here All Along, and it was a quick, sweet read, but it was slightly immature considering the main characters are all 17 and 18. All things considered though I did like this, although if I was Gideon or Kyle and I had a Ruby in my life, I would strangle her for being a terrible, awful person because there is literally no excuse for any of her actions, and I thought her salvation came way, way too late.

I did, however, absolutely love Gideon and Kyle. They were so cute the whole time. I just wanted to squeeze their cheeks and force them to kiss like two Barbie dolls. Because they were PERFECT for each other. Sandy Hall just writes the cutest stories, I am not even kidding. They’re as sweet as a spoonful of sugar, but I love them. I genuinely could read her writing every day.

Been Here All Along could easily have had Taylor Swift’s You Belong With Me as it’s theme song, I’m not even kidding, it was just so cute and I finished it within a few hours of starting it. I don’t have a lot to say because there was not a lot wrong with this book. I’ll read anything Sandy Hall releases because she just has this way with words and her books never fail to put a smile on my face.
