Book Review - The Insignificance of You

The Insignificance of You - Tammy Robinson

The Insignificance of You is a coming of age story filled with emotion and a lot of firsts. First loss, first kiss, first love…

I’m not a big reader of Young Adult fiction, but when I heard that Tammy Robinson had written a YA story, I just had to try it.

As always, this author has allowed me to get to know even more wonderful characters. I loved both of the main characters, Tai and Skye. I liked being able to read a YA book that wasn’t overly melodramatic. Although they are teenagers, they had a level of maturity and depth that I could relate to. I also liked Skye’s mum and grandma (she was called Bubbles. I want a grandma called Bubbles), and I enjoyed witnessing the relationship between the three generations of women, what life threw at each of them and how they each dealt with it.

I loved the lighthouse setting, and the description of the stars in the sky. When I moved to Cornwall a few years ago, I too was amazed by how incredibly beautiful a clear sky at night looks without lots of light pollution. I live in a little hamlet that doesn’t have street lamps, and I’ve been known the wrap up warm in winter and sit outside in the garden late at night looking at the stunning star filled sky until my neck hurts and my nose has gone numb. Truly magical.

This is the third book I have read by Tammy Robinson, and I can’t wait to read more of her books and get to know more of the wonderful characters she has created.

I would like to thank the author for a copy of this book, via THE Book Club (TBC) on Facebook, in exchange for an honest review, and wish her success with this book.
