Book Review - The Pros of Cons

The Pros of Cons

About the Book
Drummer Phoebe Byrd prides herself on being one of the guys, and she's ready to prove it by kicking all their butts in the snare solo competition at the Indoor Percussion Association Convention.

Writer Vanessa Montoya-O'Callaghan has been looking forward to the WTFcon for months. Not just because of the panels and fanfiction readings but because WTFcon is where she'll finally meet Soleil, her internet girlfriend, for the first time.

Taxidermy assistant Callie Buchannan might be good at scooping brains out of deer skulls, but that doesn't mean it's her passion. Since her parents' divorce, her taxidermist father only cares about his work, and assisting him at the World Taxidermy and Fish-Carving Championships is the only way Callie knows to connect with him.

When a crazy mix-up in the hotel lobby brings the three girls together, they form an unlikely friendship against a chaotic background of cosplay, competition, and carcasses!

My Take on the Book
This was a really fun book that brought together a ton of fun characters. As someone that was a member of the band and a person that people thought of as a geek I could definitely relate to the characters. There were a number of converging stories that the author did a great job at bringing them all together. I also loved to see how people that are so different can have so many similarities too, as you would not expect that at first. I also have to say that going into this book I really did not know anything about taxidermy, but after reading this I can say that I feel that I better understand this as well as have a greater appreciation for it too. The book is a fun book that all ages will love!
