Young love!

I really enjoyed this YA listen. It was felt very real dealing with realife teen issues and how life is. I was sucked into this story from start to finish. I found myself smiling most the book. I loved Cam and Jake's story so much. What made the book was that the author went more into the future and just didn't end it with no future look. This is a first with this author and I will be looking into more of her books. The narrator did a great job!

Sweet YA Romance

This is a short, sweet, and cute YA, high school romance. Cameron and Jake are great characters. Sarah Sampino did a great narration.

High School Memories Stirred

Suzana Thompson does an excellent job of capturing the coming of age emotions in Tomboy. Cam has always one of the guys but little does she know her twin brother's best friend, Jake, has more than friendly feelings for her. Sparks fly when she catches Jake in a compromising position in her room. As a tomboy, romance and all the trappings of being a girl have never appealed to Cam. Her parents' divorce and her absent father color her reaction to relationships but her mother is still hopeful for a lifelong love. While Jake has been waiting his entire life for Cam to be on the same page, the young man is what all mature book boyfriends should aspire to be: patient, romantic, possessive, loving, and passionate. While the road is sometimes rocky on the way to their relationship, Cam and Jake's story ends in a very satisfying way.
Ms. Thompson capture's Cam's tomboy traits well, I grew up as one so I could relate to her character, and being blindsided by a friend who has romantic feeling? She hit that shocker dead on, as well as the drama of the high school friends and the catty girls who try to break up couples. Ms. Thompson's characters are realistic, the situations real life and the story well paced. There are great family moments with the mom, great banter between the siblings, and with the couple. I'd definitely read more by this author.
Sarah Sampino does an excellent job bringing these characters to life. Her voice is smooth and when Jake was teasing Cam I could hear the smirk in her voice. I'll be watching for more books narrated by her.

YA romance

This was a new author for me. I enjoyed the young love coming of age romance. She discovers her hormones and her brothers best friend all at the same time.

Great young adult romance

This was a great teenage romance! I loved Cam. I saw a lot of younger me in her. I was a tomboy. And this author got the whole vibe and feelings of a tomboy perfect. Maybe she was one too growing up. I just felt like younger me would totally have related. Except I don't have a twin and I definitely didn't fall for my twin's hot best friend. Jake is ultimate book boyfriend material. He's flawed, but sweet. He's patient, but also has his limits. I loved following their story and I was glad it continued on. I won't give you the details of how they go from friendship to more. It's worth the shock. I do love a story with an oblivious person not realizing how the other sees them. I think we all can relate. Another great narration by Sarah Sampino. If you want a narrator who understands young adult characters, especially girls, she is your voice. I'm becoming a quick fan. This book was great all around and I really enjoyed it. I highly recommend to older young adult fans and up.

Cute YA Story

Cam has always been just one of the guys, despite the fact that she's a girl. She's never had a crush on a guy or felt attraction for anyone, so it shocks her when she can't get her brother's best friend Jake out of her head. Cam thinks she can get it out of her system quickly but Jake has other ideas.

This was a cute YA story, I'd recommend it for older teens due to the focus on sex. I really loved both characters, Cam doesn't care what anyone thinks and I love her confidence. I loved her friendship with Kyle. Jake was so sweet in flashbacks and the end showed how great they were together. The narration was well done and fit the story well. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Cute Coming of Age Story

Title: Tomboy
Author: Suzana Thompson
Format: Audio
Narrator: Sarah Sampino
Genre: YA romance, sibling’s best friend (twins) friends to lovers
Standalone: yes
Part of a Series: I don’t think so
POV: Cameron
Steam Level: Warm - no graphic sexuality but fade to black, just kissing
4/5

Tomboy is a cute coming of age story about a Tomboy realizing her sexuality. Cameron was a little too naive and a bit slow on the uptake for me but I loved Jake and his patience with Cameron. Tomboy dealt with a lot of issues that teens deal with including sexuality, sexual identity and gossip

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Tomboy

Tomboy was an enjoyable coming of age/YA love story between Cameron and Jake. Both characters were likable and the storyline was interesting. Sarah Sampino did a great job bringing this story to life. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Didn't Love It

I really wanted to like this book. It has a nice premise, but the story just fell flat. On the upside, the narrator did a great job with what she was given. She definitely injected a lot of life into the story and characters and spoke clearly and directly.

The story itself is just too unbelievable, and the character of Cam is infuriating. Her motives and feelings have no basis in reality and do not reflect the way that rational people behave. Which would be fine if she were meant to be that way, but it is stressed in the story that she is meant to be a rational and accepting person. The lack of awareness and basic human anatomy demonstrated by Cam is insulting to the reader and lacks any real depth.

Overall, I would not recommend it.

Do not suggest for a teen

I liked this story and it didn’t have any detailed sex scenes but there is a lot of sexual happenings with the high school students. I think it would lead to more graphic and detailed reads which I believe would be inappropriate for teens to read. With that said I liked that this story was complete and went through to after college. Good story line and characters. Also not big on the homosexuality, just don’t care to read about it.
