I give the first half of this book 4 stars and the second half 5 stars. The first half is delightful, but it isn't until the second half that it becomes un-put-down-able. Great characters, great story, witty writing. The book could easily have existed without a romantic subplot, but it was a very sweet romantic subplot nonetheless.

New favorite book???? New favorite book!!! Like maybe this is actually my new reread and Red White & Royal Blue can take at least a short break (we'll see though, I have already read it three times this year). This book was just so joyful, so sweet, so full of hope and so relatable in its journey from sadness to a life of color. I want that for myself. This book gives me something to dream about.

See content warnings for discussion of fatphobia in this book, though.

This book made my heart melt. And then it carefully put my heart back together. What a delightful book.
