    A lot of stuff jammed into 400 pages, and not an easy read. The story is difficult and fairly convoluted. Nate is being deposed as to the circumstances causing his close friend Cam to stab him in the stomach with a ceramic shard. The story moves back and forth from the deposition to th...

    It only took about five pages for me to be hooked on this novel. The introduction of both characters instantly made me curious about them; and that increased steadily. There's been a beating. There's been a stabbing. Nate and Cam have ended up across from each other in a deposition...

    Nate?s always been a good kid. But when he becomes friends with the new guy at school, Cam, his family notices a change. Cam?s the kind of guy who forces him to think about life, the universe, and his dreams ? and, yeah, sometimes they break the rules. Soon their two worlds twist...

    I have only just read the last page of Deposing Nathan, and I am already writing this review. If you know anything about my reviewing style, you'll know that's a rare occurrence. However this book affected me so deeply, and I have so many things flying through my head, that I have to w...

    I tried to keep my expectations neutral on this one because I felt like it could go in so many ways based on the premise, some of which were not positive, and they were kind of blown out of the water, if I'm being honest. This isn't a book about a trial so much as it is about two guys ...

    ~*Check out all my reviews over on The Bent Bookworm!*~ I'm giving this book five stars, even though I only read the first 10% and the last 10-15%. It was extremely painful to read, and Nathan's aunt's character reminded me so much of my mother. I grew up in a fundamentalist Christ...

    What you have to understand about Cam - and this is important - is that up until he jammed a shard of ceramic in my gut, he was the best friend I?ve ever had. I know why I?m here, Mrs. Lawson, and I know what you want me to say. But you?re not going to like it, because the fight...

    Brilliant and heartbreaking, but also so true I really loved this book. The structure of the story is unique ? jumping back and forth between a deposition and flashbacks, and the author does it so well ? it?s utterly seamless. In some ways I felt like I was watching a movie. ...

    I hated this book. And it was phenomenal. I honestly can?t remember having so many visceral negative emotions about a book as DEPOSING NATHAN. Narrator Nathan is the opposite of a Profile in Courage. He?s deceitful, mostly to himself, but also to those he loves. Who wouldn?...

    This is such a needed book in the YA and LGBT genres. Not only are the characters compelling and well-rounded, but it tackles some incredibly important and difficult topics. What's most impressive is how Smedley balances writing a bisexual main character who is also religious. It was e...

    The socially- and self-conscious dialogue is a little too on point and well delivered for high schoolers at times, but Deposing Nathan covers a lot of important ground and, for the most part, covers it well. Full review TK. ...

    I loved this book for so many reasons. For starters, while it may sound clich, it is quite the page-turner. I was desperate to know what was going on and how the story would end up, and while I may admit that I am the occasional-peek-at-the-next-few-pages-and-ruin-the-entire-reading-...

    First of all, this book is so well written. I was drawn in right from the first page, and I was fully engaged in the story throughout the whole book. I would have read it in one sitting if I could have. And it's just such a good book as well. If you want to read about lovable charac...

    *This was sent to me for review from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.* 4 stars. I was expecting to love this, so it's no surprise that I did, but I'm glad that I did. I loved that the characters were messy, so so damn messy to the end. I feel like authors ...

    "If you think you have to earn enough points on someone's rubric for them to accept you, then either you're wrong to assume they won't love you for who you are, or they never loved you in the first place." This book reads like a punch in the gut feels so naturally it's 5 out of 5 st...

    Sometimes I read books and love them, and then days or weeks or months later I'd think back and go, "This wasn't as good as I thought it was." Well, this book is the opposite of that because I seem to love it more and more with each passing week. Deposing Nathan is good. Like, award...

    This book was so so powerful. It makes your heart hurt, your head throb, and your arms shiver. It's incredibly tough to read, but it's so important. The story will definitely impact you and will stay with you forever. It is hard to imagine that this is a debut novel because it is s...

    This is the kind of book that saves lives, the kind of book that makes you say "Oh shit, that's me". I was looking forward to this book as soon as I heard of it and it did not disappoint. This is one of the only books out there about being bi written by a bit author and for that, I am ...

    I have THOUGHTS. First off, whew boy was I a basketful of emotions during this book. From shaking with anger to full on crying, I did it all. Second, each character was so well done, I changed my mind several times over whether or not I hated certain people (in the end my answer ...

    This book REALLY took me by surprise. Though simply written with the occasional trope, this story was beautifully done. It explores a lot of moral complexities that YA contemporaries in general tend to shy away from, as both Nate and Cameron are very aware of their own flaws and how it...
