m or f? by Lisa Papademetriou and Chris Tebbets

Frannie and Marcus are brain twins. They finish each other's thoughts and are always there whenever the other needs a second opinion. So naturally Frannie turns to Marcus (who's gay) when she starts crushing on Jeffrey. The problem is, Frannie is too scared to talk to him so they start having online conversations where Marcus writes for Frannie. Jeffrey and Marcus really seem to hit it off and that's when everybody starts making mistakes and things get confusing. Frannie and Marcus have to get through tough situations and find out who everybody really is on the inside to sort through the mess that they've created for themselves.

This book actually wasn't that bad. I was a little tentative going into it because I've read some pretty amazing books recently and didn't want this book to not live up to them. Frannie and Marcus's story is very cute and heartwarming. I think that the authors did a great job working through a complex, twisting plotline to make it all turn out in the end. I also like the two main characters. I really appreciated how in depth each of the people in the story were. You really got to know them which is great. Some books really don't develop their characters very well, but this is not one of them. One of the other things that I thought was cool was how the book explored sexuality a little bit. Some of the main characters are gay and I really liked reading the story through their perspective. It shows that everyone thinks the same way and there is no reason to be afraid or disrespectful of someone who just happens to have different attractions than you. All in all, I really liked the book m or f? and would recommend it to everyone.
