Review: The Avery Shaw Experiment by Kelly Oram

The Avery Shaw Experiment by Kelly Oram
Release Date: May 4th 2013
Publisher: BlueFields
ebook: 278 pages
When Avery Shaw’s heart is shattered by her life-long best friend, she chooses to deal with it the only way she knows how—scientifically. 

The state science fair is coming up and Avery decides to use her broken heart as the topic of her experiment. She’s going to find the cure. By forcing herself to experience the seven stages of grief through a series of social tests, she believes she will be able to get over Aiden Kennedy and make herself ready to love again. But she can’t do this experiment alone, and her partner (ex partner!) is the one who broke her heart.

Avery finds the solution to her troubles in the form of Aiden’s older brother Grayson. The gorgeous womanizer is about to be kicked off the school basketball team for failing physics. He’s in need of a good tutor and some serious extra credit. But when Avery recruits the lovable Grayson to be her “objective outside observer,” she gets a whole lot more than she bargained for, because Grayson has a theory of his own: Avery doesn’t need to grieve. She needs to live. And if there’s one thing Grayson Kennedy is good at, it’s living life to the fullest.

Another exceptional witty contemporary romance by Kelly Oram has been one of my top reads, the Avery Shaw Experiment!

In this review I would like to point out three(3) things. 

FIRST:The concept. The prose of the story was easy to grasp. To proved that,I finished reading this book in just 3hrs! The premise of the book was for Avery to experience and record the 7 stages of Breakup which she had to present in their science fair. Once I started reading The Avery Shaw Experiment I couldn't put it down. The words just flew through me while I'm reading it and I feel every part of it as real as a highschool student life like with Avery. I liked how Kelly work on both main characters' POV. Readers get a glimpse of Avery and Grayson thoughts throughout the story which added as an added point for it to be more appealing and for the readers to understand each characters' actions. 

SECOND: The character's. I saw that everyone of them was believable and three-dimensional. Avery was the shy, pretty-nerdy type of girl. You see she's been "in love" for Aiden, her almost twin--but they're really just friends--since she thought she was. While Aiden was as nerdy as Avery, he's been oblivous to Avery's feelings not until Avery revealed it which unfortunately--but not for me--didn't go well. And here my fellow readers is where we will meet Grayson *sigh* . Grayson was the total opposite of Avery and his brother Aiden, he's what we could call "The King" in their school. He's with the popular kids, has a reputation with girls--I know that's inevitable with those gorgeousness in  place *another sigh*. But other than those physical qualities, Grayson was also a nice and funny guy,he doesn't put up with jerks or mean girls so his "popular" friends are all nice. He's also the partner of Avery throughout this experiment and who helped her to cope with the 7 stages. His sincere feelings for Avery made him a worthy book boyfriend. Of course there are the secondary characters whom I LOVED. Libby I cannot tell you how much I liked her to be my friend, she's Avery's friend in the story. A very straightforward person that made me laugh and had my eyes huge everytime she opens her mouth. There's also the Geek friends and the Popular ones, all of them are engaging that added spice to the story.

THIRD: I ❤ Kelly Oram. She does have the power to pull in the readers into her stories.She brought a funny tale to love, heartache and friendship.  It does not only tackles all about boyfriend-girlfriend relationship but also how a different sides of group of friends could make a perfect relationship without the  labels. I assure you that from the start until you finish the book that there's no dull moment in this story. If you are looking for a light, funny, short yet very tasteful read then I recommend this book for you. So READ IT ;)
