Technically my second read of this book but it was definitely an enjoyable read
Gabi and Liz's relationship was the best thing out of the book in how when you think about it it's quite complex
When I first got this book I got it cuz I heard everyone saying it was good but didn't realize it was a queer book so that surprised me in a good way
Overall look forward to reading more of the authors books

It doesn’t take much for a book to make me cry, ESPECIALLY if it has strong sibling ties, but this one has be tearing up again and again and again. One of the best YA books I’ve ever read.

This book was a complete delight. The protagonist, Liz Lighty, faces real and heartbreaking challenges but the world turns out to be just a little bit kinder than we might often experience it to be. The concept of a prom-obsessed town was a clever setting for this coming-of-age, first love story.

This book was alright. It was all over TikTok last year, and I honestly think I was expecting more, it felt like The Hate U Give, which makes me think I'm not the biggest fan of contemporary novels, they feel way too big on pop culture references and trying to appeal to this generation. 
I loved Jordan in this, he was so respectful to Emme and her struggles and accepted Liz even after she had pushed him away for so long.
Spoiler Freaking Gabi I knew was a bad sign, she was too good to be true
 
I could've gone without reading this one, but oh well, the more you read the more you know
