Book Review: Minor Dramas & Other Catastrophes

Books are my go-to pleasure these days. It’s really tough out there, and reading is my solace. One novel that helped me at the very beginning of this period is Minor Dramas & Other Catastrophes.

5 stars

Genre: Contemporary fiction


  • Immersive world
  • Full of heart and humor


  • An incident at the end might be too dramatic for some readers

A compulsive read. I loved this book about the mamas and dramas happening in this particular high school. The teaching world felt really authentic in this novel. Liston Heights is a well-drawn community, and I particularly enjoyed swapping viewpoints of the different characters affected by the unfolding events. MINOR DRAMAS also highlights the positives–and negatives–of using technology and how it influences both adults and adolescents. I really admired West for depicting the intricacies of family relationships and providing a look into the self-awareness of youth today.

A fun but also thought-provoking read–excellent!
