Noah Cant Even Blog Tour

Hello, people and welcome to another blog tour!
I am honoured to be a part of this!
In today's tour we will be doing a review of the book itself.
I recently went to Scholastic's blogger brunch where I met this author and heard him speak about his book.
Also, isn't the cover just vibrant. 
It's totally stunning right?
So first of all, let's say what the book's about for those of you who don't know...

Title: Noah Can't Even
Author: Simon James Green
Release Date: 4th May 2017
Genre: Contemporary
Publisher: Scholastic
 Format: Paperback

Poor Noah Grimes! His father disappeared years ago, his mother's Beyonce tribute act is an unacceptable embarrassment, and his beloved gran is no longer herself. He only has one friend, Harry, and school is...Well, it's pure HELL. Why can't Noah be normal, like everyone else at school? Maybe if he struck up a romantic relationship with someone - maybe Sophie, who is perfect and lovely - he'd be seen in a different light? But Noah's plans are derailed when Harry kisses him at a party. That's when things go from bad to utter chaos.

About the author

Simon James Green grew up in a small town in Lincolnshire that definitely wasn’t the inspiration for Little Fobbing – so no-one from there can be mad with him, OK? He enjoyed a classic British education of assorted humiliations and barbaric PE lessons before reading Law at Queens’ College, Cambridge, where he further embarrassed himself by accidentally joining the rowing team despite having no upper body strength and not being able swim. When it turned out that being a lawyer was nothing like how it looks in Suits or The Good Wife, and buoyed by the success of his late night comedy show that involved an inflatable sheep, he travelled to London to pursue a glamorous career in show business. Within weeks he was working in a call centre, had been mugged, and had racked up thousands of pounds worth of debt. Finding strength and inspiration in the lyrics of "Tubthumping" by Chumbawumba, he eventually ended up working on a range of West End shows and UK tours, co-wrote a feature-length rom-com for the BBC and directed Hollyoaks for C4 / Lime Pictures. After trying really, really hard, he also managed to write Noah Can’t Even. If you are interested in stalking him, he still lives in London, where he spends a lot of time telling people that Noah Can’t Even is only partly autobiographical, and his mum has definitely never done a BeyoncĂ© tribute act.

Written Review

This book was brilliant!
It's so funny and hilarious and I rarely laugh out loud with books, but this one had me chuckling.
It's a fantastic coming of age book with a twist of LGBT. 
Noah is definitely a character I loved.
This book is written amazingly; it's so sarcastic and witty.
People of all ages can read this and enjoy it.  

  And that is the end of the tour!
A massive thank you to Scholastic for letting me be a part of this! 
I hope you guys have enjoyed the tour.
Until next time!
