Really enjoyed the characters and setting of this book. It was the era I love but in a way.. modern enough for me not to get bored after the first hundred pages.

Simon has a major emotional flow up but Daphne stays pretty much the same.

i can’t help but be a little disappointed after watching the netflix series first and watching so many scenes and characters i have come to love not even be in the book

usually it’s a case of there’s more scenes in the books that get forgotten- but not in this case

i still enjoyed daphne and simon’s storyline and had a wonderful time reading it

Cringe. Feels like Jonaxx or any other Filo writers with cliche plots made it. The show is better.
