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. Right?

Professional reviews

"Arielle DeLisle clearly differentiates the large cast of characters in this audiobook and the rainbow of feelings inherent in adolescent love. Seventeen-year-old Molly is headed for Crush #27--and none have ended in so much as a kiss. DeLisle's narration adds to the story's natural dialogue and honest emotions. She captures Molly's angst, which contrasts with her twin sister, Cassie's, confidence. Molly wonders if being sperm-donor twins is the reason she's overweight and less datable. As Cassie enters a more serious relationship with the beautiful Mina, Molly feels herself drifting apart from her twin and away from family. She's more concerned about hiding her first promising crush than joining the celebration of their mothers' wedding. The diversity of characters and crushes and the many views of individuation are well integrated into the story. S.W. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
