I went into this book not knowing what this was about, so I didn't expect anything at all. I relate to Molly a lot with her social anxiety etc. so it was interesting to see how she approaches romantic relationships. The leads had way more in common than I thought, I think this story taught me to give a chance to people who are very different from me and to not be afraid to dig deeper. Oh and I love that most of the characters we see are queer and there's no homophobia about it!! As a lesbian I sometimes feel pressured to fill in a particular type, so it was refreshing to read a book where the characters are so different but yet share the same identity😌 I also appreciate that this book adresses serious problems such as alcoholism and one's relationship with their cultural heritage etc. and isn't just a sweet read (sweet reads are fine, but I very rarely like them). Overall, it's a nice book and a quick read too, as I binged it in a day😅
