Review: Social Queue by Kat Kerr

January 9, 2022

About the book:

I thought I was nobody’s teen crush, but turns out I was just missing the signs.

Zoe Kelly is starting a new phase of her life. High school was a mess of bullying and autistic masking that left her burnt out and shut down. Now, with an internship at an online media company—the first step on the road to her dream writing career—she is ready to reinvent herself. But she didn’t count on returning to her awkward and all-too-recent high-school experiences for her first writing assignment.

When her piece, about her non-existent dating life, goes viral, eighteen-year-old Zoe is overwhelmed and more than a little surprised by the response. But, with a deadline and a list of romantic contenders from the past to reconnect with for her piece on dating, she is hoping one of her old sparks will turn into a new flame.

Social Queue is a funny and heart-warming autistic story about deciphering the confusing signals of attraction and navigating a path to love.

My Thoughts:

Oh Oh Oh I enjoyed this read so much! If you are in the mood for a cute romantic comedic coming of age tale with lots of heart, misunderstandings and friendship drama then read this one immediately. Zoe is a young woman writing her first article for her internship at a online media company. She’s eighteen, just out of school and recreating herself after a rough final few years of high school. This time she will show the world who she is and her brilliant idea for her first story – writing about her non-existent love life gets all the attention it deserves. A series of follow-up pieces are suggested when she is inundated with comments from a number of fans suggesting she might have missed their signs of romantic admiration. This is a story that has ALL the feels as Zoe goes on a few dates with these admirers to see if she did indeed miss a connection or two.

Zoe is negotiating her autistic needs within a society not set up to handle such requirements. Her lessons on disability awareness and language use in the media are absolutely needed and deftly handled. Zoe is also redefining her relationships with friends, family and work colleagues as she blossoms into adulthood. But Zoe’s sweet heart is at the forefront of this adorable remeet-cute story. You will cheer her on, get angry on her behalf and melt with her when she discovers romantic love for the first time. A terrific story that left me smiling for the rest of the day. If you need a pick me up, read this fabulous book by Australian Author Kay Kerr.
