Personal Opinion/Review #10: The Upside of Unrequited By Becky Albertalli

The Upside of Unrequited

I am on a huge contemporary kick this summer, there is just something about the warm weather by the pool with a super cute couple in undying love. This book was great for that purpose. The main character was totally relatable, at least to myself, and super cute.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because 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. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And 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 an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?

OMG, so the main character Molly is very relatable I don’t care what anyone says we all crush on so many people. I would hate to think if someone had counted the number of crushes I had in high school, heck even into my young adult life. I felt so nostalgic reading along with Molly’s summer life and all the mishaps and happy moments that took place along the ride. The writing style of romance and swoon is very similar to the style in the previous blog post I did about Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda, I do really enjoy Albertalli’s books and will continue to read all she puts out.
