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.
Why I’m Excited:
I loved Simon and the Homosapian’s Agenda and it was easily one of my favorite books from last year.
Granted, we’ve only had the one book from Becky until this one, but I have hope that this one will be just as good as Simon and give me a whole new set of characters to love.
Molly sounds like a great MC that readers will be able to relate to and connect to their own lives and struggles and I can’t wait to see how her story pans out.
