Tellulah Darling writes YA & New Adult romantic comedy because her first kiss sucked and she's compensating.
Sassy girls. Swoony boys. What could go wrong?
I am in love with this book. I literally got approved for it on NG about an hour before I dived in. Was just going to read a chapter, to take a break. Yeah, right. Simon hooked me in and pulled me under. Funny, sweet, sad - I keenly felt every bump and soar of this teen guy's life. His voice was bang on.
I was dying of curiosity to find the real identity of Simon's object of affection Blue, tense with worry over the Martin situation, and lost in painful reminiscence of the strengths and fragilities of teen friendships. And by the time things get into super "awwww" territory, I was a puddle. I don't think I've ever been so rooting for a book kiss to finally happen. Don't add this to your TBR pile - skip the pile, dive in and just start reading. Brava, Ms. Albertalli. Brava!
