I was so excited to read this book after seeing the lovely cover, and it was everything I had hoped it would be (and more)! Never in my life have I flown through a book so quickly, while wanting to savor every last minute.
She Gets the Girl follows Alex and Molly as they embark on a dating scheme to end all dating schemes. Both of them have their heart set on another girl, but maybe just maybe they’ll find themselves falling for each other in the process (You’ll have to read to find out).
One of the many things I love about this novel is the popular tropes which are intertwined into the plot and then promptly flipped on their heads. For example, fake dating elements are included into Alex’s five step plan, but are not as traditionally executed as in the typical format. This made the story feel so much more fleshed out and real, while still preserving the cheesy and predictable moments I know and love. The charecters are another aspect of the novel which really shine through, and even if I wouldn’t act in the exact same manner, I understood , sympathized, and loved them all the same. This paired with the college campus environment created a unique and special YA romance.
Overall, I would highly highly recommend checking out for your next read (check trigger warnings of course)

this book was so incredibly amazing i loved it so much!!
first of all, the characters were so well developed and i actually related to them both.
i’m the beginning i wasn’t sure about the romance because i really liked the love interests but the story was written so well and it seamlessly fizzled into them having feelings for each other that i was really rooting for them.
another thing i really loved was how all the ends were tied beautifully with their mothers and other people. the sensitive topics were also handled well especially the aversion to celebrating your heritage, i found it to be so powerful.
overall this was such a great queer romance that’s everything i could ever want in a romance! it was really done so well and i love the fact that the two women who wrote this also had a similar love story <3
