Humor (Fiction.) Young Adult Fiction. Young Adult Literature. HTML:A funny and timely debut YA about the toxic masculinity at a famous improv comedy camp

Seventeen-year-old Zelda Bailey-Cho has her future all planned out: improv camp, then Second City, and finally Saturday Night Live. She's thrilled when she lands a spot on the coveted varsity team at a prestigious improv camp, which means she'll get to perform for professional scoutsincluding her hero, Nina Knightley. But even though she's hardworking and talented, Zelda's also the only girl on Varsity, so she's the target for humiliation from her teammates. And her 20-year-old coach, Ben, is cruel to her at practice and way too nice to her when they're alone. Zelda wants to fight back, but is sacrificing her best shot at her dream too heavy a price to pay? Equal parts funny and righteous, Unscripted is a moving debut novel that Printz Award winner Nina LaCour calls "a truly special book, written at exactly the right time."

I was given an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I'd like to preface with the fact that I got so invested in Zelda's world that I read Unscripted all in one go—I didn't even put it down when I cooked and ate dinner!

It was hard to get into this at first, because the horrible sexism, physical abuse, and emotional abuse that Zelda goes through is, unfortunately, nothing new. It was really hard to put myself through experiences that many women are all too familiar with, without knowing for sure that the reader was going to be rewarded for the pain. I definitely think the ending made the whole ordeal worth it (and for those who have not had similar experiences to Zelda, I think this is an important story to lend your ear to). Zelda's story can certainly help young girls identify some of the sneakier types of abuse, while still ending the novel on a hopeful note .

Unscripted ended up being about more than Zelda trying to 'make it' in the Improv world and more than about being an abuse victim. It is about growing strong female friendships, demonstrating the bond of siblings, exposing the lethargic authority of those in charge, and most importantly it is about showing boys and young men that they can be better and help those in vulnerable positions. In the wave of #MeToo, we need to raise up voices like Zelda's, not only to bring awareness, but to help young boys to realize that doing nothing is the same as doing wrong. Jake's storyline was particularly heart-warming, and I believe facilitating that change in our future generations is how we move forwards. ( )
