Description: 

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?

I liked this book. It’s been my bathroom book, if you know what I mean.
DO you know what I mean?
I mean, I keep it in my bathroom so when I…you know…I read. I got so sucked into this story, though, that I was in my bathroom for five hours straight.
Now I can’t feel my legs.
But it was worth it. Counting down the days until I get to watch Love, Simon because I also loved that book and can’t wait for the movie. But I’m actually going to the theater to see that movie with my book club. I’m not watching it in my bathroom. I don’t think my book club would enjoy that.

This book was cute – it was exactly what I expect from YA and that is perfect!

While there is some LGBT theme in it like the authors last book, it is more of an accompanying theme, not the theme that drives the story. This book is more about body image and confidence. Our heroine, Molly, deals with being an overweight teenager and self-sabotaging herself because she is always assuming the worst. Also, because of her insecurities there is a lot of storyline based around how someone in her shoes views relationships. All very interesting and well written.

My favorite YA trope makes an appearance: lists. Seems like YA characters are always making lists. Molly doesn’t let us down as she gives us a list of her crushes.

Speaking of YA tropes – YA books always seem to make teens sound more sophisticated than I remember being and more sophisticated than I feel now (I’m looking at you, John Green!). With this book I think the author did a good job of making the teenagers seem more realistic in their dialogue.

If you are a YA fan, this has to be on your list. If you enjoyed Simon, you won’t be disappointed.

As soon as I saw Becky’s name on the cover, I knew it was going to be something I would read, so I went into this not knowing anything about it.

Love love loved Molly. She’s smart and insecure and funny and unsure. I don’t think I’ve ever identified with a MCs inner monologue as much as I did with her. Cassie and Mina and Reid and the rest of them were all fabulous, but this is 100% about Molly and Becky portrayed that perfectly.

I’m a huge fan of positive and present parents and Nadine and Patty were some of the best. I enjoyed the family dynamic, even the shitty parts.

Sure, there were parts that were wildly overdramatic, but there’s also a line about being 17 and feeling like everything is either the end or beginning of the world. And that couldn’t be more accurate. I say it’s overdramatic because I’m an adult now. {SOBSOBSOB}

Overall, it was sweet and heartbreaking and fluffy and such an amazing book. It’s exactly what I wanted to read.

**Huge thanks to Balzer+Bray and Edelweiss for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**

4.5/5. I think I even liked this a little bit better than Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda??? Molly is such a lovely character that I could relate A LOT to and her family was all kinds of adorable. The cast of this book is really diverse (Molly’s family is mixed-raced and she has two moms, her sister is a lesbian, there are multiple Jewish characters, a pansexual character, etc. etc.) and it just seems very aware of current feminist and social issues (for example, there’s talk about how virginity is a social construct). I think it dealt with issues like fatshaming in such a relatable and nuanced way (Molly has a grandma with whom she generally has a good relationship, but who continuously makes snarky remarks about Molly’s weight). For me personally, this was also one of those books that made me constantly think “Oh, someone else thought/worried about these things? I thought I was the only one!” I guess it’s one of those books that can make you feel a little less alone in your own head. And aren’t these always the best kind of books?!

Oh I adored this book so very, very much. It was relatable, refreshing and Molly’s character was everything I wish I’d had in a book growing up. The diversity and representation of so many different types of people was fantastic. It makes me so happy that so many people will be able to see themselves in some way in this book. I loved Becky Albertalli’s writing style, it was such a comfortable read and I can’t wait to read more from her in the future! I couldn’t recommend this more highly. The Upside of Unrequited is definitely one of my favourite reads of 2017 so far!!
