"A smash hit for teen romcom fans wanting a queer read-alike to Jenny Han's To All the Boys I've Loved Before." --School Library Journal

"Full of humor and tenderness, this contemporary YA will satisfy readers looking to swoon." --Buzzfeed

"The modern voice and humor S.J. Goslee brings to the story keeps this tale-as-old-as-time fresh and new . . . If you're looking for a novel to fill the To All The Boys I've Loved Before-shaped hole in your heart, this is the book for you." --Camille Perri, author of When Katie Met Cassidy

"The queer rom-com is on the rise, [and] this embodies everything that makes a good romance . . .

I really wanted to read this, it just sounded so cute. I finally got my hands on it, and the first few chapters were very confusing. I'm so happy I kept reading. This book was amazing and so adorable! The romance was not who I thought it was going to be originally, but it's ok, I enjoyed it more. Yes this book was kinda predictable, but I loved it! The characters were wonderful, the romance great, and I laughed many times while reading this. This is now one of my favorite books! So glad I picked this up! Giving it 5 stars.
