I received a copy of She Gets the Girl by Alyson Derrick and Rachael Lippincott
 from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Although it took a little bit of time to get fully invested in Alex and Molly's story, once invested it was impossible to put this book down. 

Both Alex and Molly were relatable in one way or another and their experiences growing closer together helped with character growth. Although the story only takes place over the course of about a month, the character growth is profound and not trivial. I would love to have seen more both of them making more friends though. I also enjoyed the pacing and progression of the story. 

Overall I recommend this book to anyone looking for a relaxing, relatable read.
