This was a really cute read. I really enjoyed it and the characters relationship was so cute. It did have me tearing up in parts but it was such a good read and worth the hype.

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.

Listened this on Spotify as an audiobook.
Why you should read this book
  • It's a cute coming of age novel 
  • Sapphic love story
  • Not just relatable characters but also relatable relationships
  • A lot of pop culture references i really enjoyed
  • Realistic examples of black culture and LGBTQİA+ struggles

Why I didn't give it 4 stars
I just knew the ending before even starting the book and you will quess right too. I felt like things happened so fast while listening even though I don't really think they did. There were not enough scenes that make me get excited or happy. 
To be honest, generally the only thing i want from a Y/A romance is to make me happy and squealing or excited. This book didn't do that much but i would still recommend it.

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
