Publisher's Summary

After an embarrassing loss to her ex-girlfriend in their first basketball game of the season, Scottie Zajac gets into a fender bender with the worst possible person: her nemesis, Irene Abraham, who is as beautiful as she is mean. When the damage sends Irene's car to the shop for weeks' worth of repairs, the girls are forced to carpool for the foreseeable future. 

Their rocky start only gets bumpier the more time they spend together. But when an opportunity presents itself for Scottie to get back at her toxic ex (and climb their school's social ladder at the same time), she bribes Irene into playing along.

Delightfully cute!

This book was so cute! Sometimes you just want a lighthearted, easy-to-read, uplifting sapphic book, and this truly fit the bill. We stan open and honest communication in this house. This book had it all: excellent friend dynamics, non-traditional but supportive family dynamics, and a relationship (after all the fake dating stuff) built on patience and vulnerability. I hope that any teens who read this come out of it understanding that if they want to have a successful relationship, those hard conversations are the way to start.

I LITERALLY CRIED

I absolutely loved this book, I was excited for it to be released because I loved “late to the party” another one of Kelly’s books and this was even better than I expected. I cried multiple time because there are so many important messages in the story and it’s tender a beautiful and it will forever hold a special place in my heart!

SO FLIPPIN’ CUTE!!

This was such a fun time! I loved so many of the characters that were presented and the dynamic of our romantic leads is so good and I loved the way there was a lot of healthy communication between them that they develop and what they’re going through emotionally.

My only grievance really is that there are audio issues with the book RIGHT at the romantic climax where the audio just cut in and out. Like it wasn’t a huge amount of audio lost and it might also just have been a problem with how my app downloaded. It just REALLY had the worst timing to drop the audio....

EDIT: I tried re-listening again and have concluded that it's an Audible App problem. Not the file!

Kelly Quindlen's third outing is another success.

I could not stop listening, Ms. Quindlen made me fall in love with sapphic romances with Her Name In The Sky, and the love affair continues here.

Teen drama

I liked it more than I thought I would. It was a teen/YA romance, with all the requisite drama. There was an underlying complexity in the writing that made it all work. The MC was frustrating in her emotional handwringing, but it seemed like an accurate portrayal of teen romance. And both characters displayed a level of maturity that was honestly refreshing. Really well done.

A high school romance that hits all the cliches in almost all the perfect places

I really enjoyed the premise of this book, after all I’m a simple gay, when I hear a sapphic book about a cheerleader and an athlete with an enemies to lovers trope, I HAVE to read it. At that point it’s out of my control! However, I do have some gripes about the story and characters. First of all, right off the bat, I found Scottie to be really frustratingly arrogant and unaware of the emotions of the people around her, BUT I do really approvals the character development I will admit. It’s what brought it up from a 3 star to a 4 star. Another thing is it did drag a little longer than necessary at certain points purely because judgements of certain characters were sometimes questionable but it wasn’t completely ruining it for me, so at least that was nice. Maybe it was on brand for high school students so maybe it’s just me thinking that.

Now onto the romance: it was so sweet when they starting getting closer and their journey from enemies to lovers itched that special spot in my cheesy heart. You can tell which moments that they start changing their feelings towards each other and it’s so adorable, and if you love grand gestures, you mayyy want to pick this up, but you didn’t hear that from me!

Story wise it’s relatively what you’d expect (surface level, at least) of a 2000s high school rom com of a cheerleader and a quarterback, except now it’s sapphic, feminist, emotionally truthful, and has basketball instead of football. If you want something that speaks to your inner cheesy teenager self, you should give this a try.

Exactly what I needed

The author did a great job of not making the main character always in the right however when she was wrong she was still reasonably likable. I also ended up falling in love with the side characters. I wanted a light book to listen to while I worked and it was perfect! I listened to it, in one day on the ride to work, during work and then riding home and then again after dinner. I needed something light, cute and a little cheesy at times. There was one moment where it kinda sounded like then narrators were switched or maybe the narrator just started in a different tone but it was only a moment before I was swept into the characters again.

She Drives Me Crazy is the teen romcom I wanted

I haven’t read a YA book in years. Not because they’re less than but because when I graduated high school in 07’ the well of lesbian characters in YA was pretty dry. I quickly jumped in to lesfic in college and never looked back, luckily teens today have a bit more variety.

She Drives Me Crazy by Kelly Quindlen is everything my inner teen girl loves, full of juicy high school drama and made up of some of my favorite tropes. Enemies to lovers with a side of fake dating, give it to me. However, the highlight of this book for me is the non-coming out story. Both of the main characters are comfortable with who they are in their sexuality. That’s not to say their sexuality doesn’t play a large part in the story, or is ignored by the other characters, but it’s not the main story. She Drives Me Crazy gives us a slew of diverse characters led by two strong young women I would have wanted to be friends with and been to afraid to talk to. Now excuse me, I need to go reclaim my childhood and research Queer YA authors.
