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.
Synopsis from Chapters.Indigo.ca
I recently read Simon vs. the Home Sapiens Agenda and immediately fell in love with Albertalli’s storytelling. I was excited to start reading The Upside of Unrequited to read her style again, and found that I really enjoyed Molly’s story. I thought it was just a really cute love story and enjoyed every character that Albertalli introduced to us!
What I Thought:
Overall, this was a fun read but I just didn’t connect with it the way I anticipated. The storyline was fun and I still love Albertalli’s work (I can’t wait for Leah Off the Beat to come out!), but this didn’t connect with me the same way her other book did. I am hoping that we hear more about Molly and Cassie in other books, because I’d love to know how their lives are going!
FINAL RATING: 4/5
Hi, I'm Alexandra! I love reading (largely YA fiction, but sometimes I'll read "adult" books), playing board games, Nutella, and binge-watching TV shows on Netflix with my husband.
