69: The Antidote for Everything

The Antidote for Everything by Kimmery Martin

Kimmery is a local Charlotte author, which is such a delight to read. I also watched part of her Stay At Home Book Tour with Anne Bogel earlier this quarantine which prompted me to put this eBook on hold from the library.

I’ve got a lot of thoughts on this book, most of which I can’t write here because it would be so controversial. The main plot is that Jonah, a gay man, treats many patients in his primary care practice who are transgender and the clinic he works for doesn’t like people with either of these lifestyles.

So they set out to destroy him by firing his patients and then firing him. In the midst of all of this someone is stealing drugs from the clinic, the person doing it lets everyone believe it’s Jonah.

Then we have Georgia, his best friend, and the narrator of this story. She’s offended that they’re firing some of her patients too and that this is trying for her friend. I wanted to like her through the whole book, but she makes some terrible decisions. She’s not really the saint or the hero of this book. This made it a compelling read, but hard to root for the guy who’s being discriminated against because he and his best friend do some terrible things to “make everyone see it their way.”

Nonetheless, it’s still ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

There’s also a romance in this book, but closed door.
