Chemistry Lessons – Blog Tour and Book Review

Welcome to the Chemistry Lessons blog tour!


For seventeen-year-old Maya, the equation for happiness is simple: a dream internship at MIT + two new science nerd friends + a perfect boyfriend = one amazing summer. Then Whit dumps her out of the blue. Maya is miserable until she discovers that her scientist mother, before she died, was conducting research on manipulating pheromones to enhance human attraction. If Maya can finish her mother’s work, maybe she can get Whit back. But when her experiment creates chaos in her love life, she realizes that maybe love and loss can’t be understood using the scientific method. Can she learn to trust the unmeasurables of love and attraction instead?

Chemistry Lessons was such a fun read, and I really enjoyed the science aspect of the story. I feel like it’s not too technical to put off any readers who dislike or don’t understand science, but still intriguing enough to keep those of us that do wanting to know more about the technical side of the experiment.

Maya goes through a lot of hilarious “oh my gosh is this really happening” moments throughout the course of the book. I found myself cringing at how she handles some of these situations, but it was so relatable.

I think Maya’s intentions for starting her experiments are really flawed, but I loved that it helped to ring her closer to her late mother. I give Chemistry Lessons 4/5 stars.
