Giles's novel is an intense thriller that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. I cannot emphasize how much I loved this book.

Gr 8 Up—Del attends church to get his crush Kiera's attention. When she and other teens approach the altar during
a service, Del joins them to get close to Kiera, then realizes he just became a Purity Pledger, promising to stay
sexually pure until marriage. With humor and honesty, this novel addresses the impact of sexism, social media,
religion, and adults' fears of teen sexuality, adeptly showing how even "good guys" indulge in toxic masculinity.

Great mini-series. I haven't read any Static comics before this (though I am familiar with the cartoon), and this was a fun introduction to Virgil and his world. The art is wonderfully expressive.

Review
I really wanted to like this book. I love a good thriller and am an avid music fan so I thought this book would be the perfect blend. I was hoping it was going to be similar to On the Come Up by Angie Thomas, which is the sequel to the Hate You Give, but it was not. It was a slower read than expected. I started to read the physical copy, but switched to audio ½ way through to finish.
I like the overall plot, but at points it was a little slow for me to read, other parts I was on the edge of my seat and wanted to know more as soon a as possible. I loved how it was told by different characters and jumped time periods. It was a mixed review. It was not a bad book at all, just not my favorite.
