Publisher Description

From the award-winning author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda comes a funny, authentic novel about sisterhood, love, and identity. “Heart-fluttering, honest, and hilarious. I can’t stop hugging this book.” —Stephanie Perkins, New York Times bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss

"I have such a crush on this book! Not only is this one a must read, but it's a must re-read." —Julie Murphy, New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin’

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly's totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie's new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she'll get her first kiss and she'll get her twin back.

There's only one problem: Molly's coworker, Reid. He's a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there's absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.

A TEN star read!

“Sometimes, I’m a confusing person to be “

Molly Peskin-Susko is growing up, and she doesn’t understand why she seems to not be as good at it as her twin Cassie is. She feels as if she should be further along. And she’s sad, and she’s 17, and she’s on medication to help her with that. She and Cassie might be twins but that relationship is changing with Cassie’s new relationship... and her best friend moving...and now her mothers are getting married... and there’s this guy who’s about to become crush #25(?)…

This is the summer of rebellion, and, if you take it as it comes, it may not be as bad as it starts out to be.

After reading Albertalli’s “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda”, I quickly found this book, and as much as I adored Simon I wanted to hug Molly and tell her that it will get better. If I could, I’d give this book TEN stars. One of the best reads of 2018 so far. 5/5

New favorite

Just after reading the sneak peak, I could tell this will be a great book. There is humor on every page alongside cold truth. And! Connections to Simon Vs. how much better can it get?

The moment when you read the dang book and one of the characters is exactly like you. I swear it’s like the author took the character off of me- even the name’s the same. (•_•)

Good book though! Got me hooked.
