Publisher's Summary

From the award-winning author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda comes a funny, authentic novel about sisterhood, love, and identity.

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can't stomach the idea of rejection. So she's careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie's orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly's cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly's totally not dying of loneliness - except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie's new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she'll get her first kiss, and she'll get her twin back.

There's only one problem: Molly's coworker, Reid. He's a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there's absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?

Perfect light reading

This is a charming book that I thoroughly enjoyed. It has a wonderful ending and a fantastic narrator. If you're looking for something to escape the stresses of life, this is the book for you.

Just Ok

I had high expectations for this book after Simon, which I adored. That's why I have a difficult time expressing my opinion on this one. It took me a really long time to get into it, and while I'm thankful that I didn't end up returning the book, I can't see myself recommending it to anyone. Some of the issues discussed, like growing apart from friends and family when dating, was something I could relate to, but it felt like the theme was only partially developed, or like it was put on the back burner only to be haphazardly "solved" at the end. I don't know, perhaps I need more time to digest my feelings on this book. But I can't help but feel.....underwhelmed.

Not as enjoyable as I expected

I was excited to read this book after I read the summary of it and I was anticipating it for so long that the moment it was released I bought it right away .. sadly I did not enjoy this book as much.. Molly's character is so boring, although I related to her in a lot of situations but she is just so weak willed and I didn't see any character development in her through out the book, I think the diversity overload is what making people hype about it .. but there were some cute moments nonetheless
The narration is what kept me pushing through the book and finish it because the narrator was amazing and she had a wide range of voices, so yeah I don't think I can recommend this book to my friends

Loved it

This is my first book I’ve listened to on Audible and I love the narration. I felt everything that went on in the book. Becky Albertalli is an awesome author. Can’t wait for more. (Will be listening to more books on here)

Perfect.

The moment I started listening to this book I knew I was going to love it. At the end of the book, I wasn't wrong. As a 26 year old woman I was able to relate to Molly and her struggles. This book touched a part of my heart and I want to listen to it again and again. I would highly recommend this book.

Cute

This is such a cute story filled with layers you wouldn't notice until you really pay attention.

Cute first love story

I wish this book existed when I were in high school. It does a really great job of covering social pressure, families, and just the insecurities of being a teenager. I really appreciated the diversity in families and characters in the book. On top of all of that, it's a really cute first love story.
