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.

"Heart-fluttering, honest, and hilarious. I can’t stop hugging this book." (Stephanie Perkins, New York Times best-selling author of Anna and the French Kiss)

"I have such a crush on this book! Not only is this one a must read, but it's a must re-read." (Julie Murphy, New York Times best-selling author of Dumplin')

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?

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.

The reader is AMAZING

First of all, the reader - I love her voice - it's so uplifting and not at all monotone, she changes per character but it's not obnoxious or like she's trying too hard, I honestly wish she read every YA book on audible.

The story is cute and very teenage-y which kinda takes me back in time. It's a sweet book filled with awkward main character who is sweet and nervous and different looking and just looking for love.

It's really a feel-good book I think everyone can relate to.

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.

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

Surprisingly boring

This is my least favorite Becky Albertalli novel. I loved Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and Leah on the Offbeat, but this was surprisingly boring.

no pizazz

I honestly I couldn't get very far. It didn't have the pizazz. I may try again later but upon the first listen I wasn't impressed. Narrator did well though.

Becky Albertalli knows how to write a book!

I bought this book after reading and falling in love with Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. I really connect with the Molly. Being the fat girl and always feeling weird about never having a boyfriend or girlfriend. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I have said the exact same things as Molly in so many situations. Can’t wait for Becky Albertalli’s newest book. I’ve already pre-ordered it!

Seriously give it a chance

So I wasn’t quite sure about this book, but the fact that it takes place in my area and it’s something I can relate too on many levels, it’s amazing. I loved the story and I found it funny and hoping and yeah a little predictable but in a good way. I loved it. I don’t get hooked to much but I’m hooked on this. I wish we got a little more into some of the characters but it’s all good.

Please give it a try. The reader is also amazing.
