Book Description

Genre: Young Adult Contemporary

Publishing Date: March 2, 2021

Synopsis:

A sweet and funny debut novel about falling for someone when you least expect it . . . and finding out that real life romance is better than anything on screen.

Emma is a die-hard romantic. She loves a meet-cute Netflix movie, her pet, Lady Catulet, and dreaming up the Gay Rom Com of her heart for the film festival competition she and her friends are entering. If only they’d listen to her ideas. . .

Sophia is pragmatic. She’s big into boycotts, namely 1) relationships, 2) teen boys and their BO (reason #2347683 she’s a lesbian), and 3) Emma’s nauseating ideas. Forget starry-eyed romance, Sophia knows what will win: an artistic film with a message.

Cue the drama. The movie is doomed before they even start shooting . . . until a real-life plot twist unfolds behind the camera when Emma and Sophia start seeing each other through a different lens. Suddenly their rivalry is starting to feel like an actual rom-com.

Review

Thoughts and Themes: When I started reading this book I was a bit concerned that I wouldn’t like it. It really did start off slow and the characters were not that loveable. I also made the mistake of reading other people’s reviews and so many of them focused on how the story revolved around the other character’s love lives so I was hoping those were wrong.

Once I got about halfway through the book though, I was invested and needed to know what would happen to each of them. I was glad that the book didn’t focus entirely on the other characters that were in the story and while we got their love lives, those needed to be included to progress the rest of the book.

I really liked how both of the girls feelings are all on the page and they are all over the place. I really liked the messiness of the whole story and them falling in love with each other. I thought that was my favorite part in this story. I loved the way both of their views on love change through the course of this book and how this book shows the different ways love can present itself to us.

Spoiler: Something I really enjoyed about this story was Emma’s reaction to her parents when she came out to them. I thought it was very realistic and it reminded me of when I came out to my parents, you expect a reaction and you kind of want a reaction because you build up to this moment so for them to dismiss it kind of hurts.

Characters: Throughout this story you get to meet the two main characters, Sophia and Emma along with some of their friends. I liked reading as Sophia and Emma both develop as characters both with each other but also on their own. I thought it was great to see the changes that they go through as they become more open with themselves and their families. I thought it was also good to see that they both were having their own difficulties with keeping things from their parents.

I liked that we got to meet some of the other side characters and get to know them. I thought it was great that they were included because so much of who Emma is really relies on how she feels about Kate.

While Matt is such a a-hole throughout the story, I really liked that he was included in this book. I thought his inclusion really showed the extent that a guy would go to when he doesn’t get what he wants. I can’t say much about this and what happens without giving away plot pieces but this is a great point that I wanted to make about this story.

Writing Style: The story is told in first person through both Emma and Sophia’s perspective. I liked that this book goes back and forth between these two characters because you get to see what each of them are thinking. I liked not only getting one side of the story but seeing them apart from each other and watching their development with their friends and family.
