âHeart-fluttering, honest, and hilarious. I canât stop hugging this book.â âStephanie 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. âJulie Murphy, New York TimesÂ bestselling author ofÂ Dumplinâ
From the award-winning author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda comes a funny, authentic novel about sisterhood, love, and identity.
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 canât stomach the idea of rejection. So sheâs careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.
Then a cute new girl enters Cassieâs orbit, and for the first time ever, Mollyâs cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly's totally not dying of lonelinessâexcept 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.
