Rachel Lynn Solomon knocked it out of the park again with this one! This is the third book I have read by her and none of them have been rated below 4 stars. She does a great job discerning between YA and adult, and I appreciate that about her. If you want a good love story with all the steam, reach for The Ex Talk, but if you want something sweet, go for one of her YA books.
Here are four things I loved about this novel:
1. The diverse cast. Solomon has no shortage of different backgrounds, religions, or lifestyles in any of her books.
2. The mental health representation. As someone who struggled with depression, it’s always nice to see yourself in a character and to feel understood.
3. The reappearance of two characters from Today, Tomorrow, Tonight was brilliant! It was nice to catch up with them and see how they are doing.
4. This book touches quite a bit on the MC’s parents separating and how that effected her. I thought this was such a brilliant thing to have represented in a YA novel since so many kids/teens go through this.
The one thing I didn’t like about this book…I can’t share, because it’s a pretty serious spoiler. But it wasn’t anything major! and I still loved the reading experience overall. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me!
