Publisher's Summary

She’s All That meets What If It’s Us in this New York Times bestselling hate-to-love YA romantic comedy from the coauthor of Five Feet Apart Rachael Lippincott and debut writer Alyson Derrick.

Alex Blackwood is a little bit headstrong, with a dash of chaos and a whole lot of flirt. She knows how to get the girl. Keeping her on the other hand…not so much. Molly Parker has everything in her life totally in control, except for her complete awkwardness with just about anyone besides her mom. She knows she’s in love with the impossibly cool Cora Myers. She just…hasn’t actually talked to her yet. 

Alex and Molly don’t belong on the same planet, let alone the same college campus. But when Alex, fresh off a bad (but hopefully not permanent) breakup, discovers Molly’s hidden crush as their paths cross the night before classes start, they realize they might have a common interest after all. Because maybe if Alex volunteers to help Molly learn how to get her dream girl to fall for her, she can prove to her ex that she’s not a selfish flirt. That she’s ready for an actual commitment. And while Alex is the last person Molly would ever think she could trust, she can’t deny Alex knows what she’s doing with girls, unlike her. 

As the two embark on their five-step plans to get their girls to fall for them, though, they both begin to wonder if maybe they’re the ones falling…for each other.

Crushes & Self Awareness

Will the awkward and quiet high schooler be able to become the person she wants to be and have a chance with her crush at college? Will the confident girl with swagger be able to help and perhaps become a better person? This book is a wonderfully rich story of two young women struggling to know themselves, believe in themselves and have the confidence to be their true selves. Realistic, sweet, awkward, funny, heartfelt and full of truth. A great book narrated beautifully.

Low Key Mad…(not really)

So, let me preface with the fact that I LOVED the story. The character’s are so relatable you can predict facial expressions and sassy remarks before they happen. It closes the book nicely at the end. HOWEVER, I’m so mad cause I can’t keep hearing about their lives!!! Thank you! But how dare you!!! 😭😭

Absolutely perfect!

I never ever thought I'd describe a book as "sweet", let alone give it 5 stars. And yet, here I am giving a "sweet" story 5 stars. Everything about this story was just right - I mean absolutely spot on. No spoilers, but the premise, the relationship progression, the character development, everything was just so well done. One of the best I've read in a while, and just what I needed at an especially difficult time in my life. I just wish there was more time with those two at the end. But still. Highly recommend.

Cute love story

I loved the writing style of this book, each chapter switches between the view point of the two main characters. The characters felt genuine, but many times I found myself shaking my head at the naivety of the main character Molly. Regardless, it’s a beautiful coming of age LGBTQ+ story that I thoroughly enjoyed and recommend to anyone needing a lighter/feel good escape.

Magical Sapphic Love Story

Molly had no friends in high school except her mom. And now she’s at college, with the tweets of her forever crush guiding her toward a new magical future. A future of friends, college memories, and finally kissing Chloe.

Alex sees college as freedom. Alcoholic mom, absent father, bartending and scraping every penny until her mom demanded it for her next drink…and finally ready to prove to her on again off again girlfriend Natalie that is ready to mature and settle things down.

They’re not friends. But Molly is a mess and Alex has the street smarts and just maybe, the five step program to getting the girl. Or maybe they’ll realize what they’re supposed to want isn’t what they want after all. Maybe they’ll realize it’s each other they want instead.

This book was a sapphic magical journey, a coming of age story told in a way that really connected with me. It was perfectly worded, engaging, emotional and gripping. I giggled and I cried, sitting at my desk in my office, not even bothering to wipe away the tears. It was that good.

This is the perfect queer romance we’ve needed for a long time.

A great listen

Good story. I think Alex should have been a little older, even 2 years would have made her experiences make a lot more sense/believable but otherwise I really liked the characters/story etc.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

The characters were so relatable and lovable. The narration was great and suited the characters. This story was never slow and boring, and the love story was one of the best I’ve read. This is one of my favorite books!!

Love it

Fun and cute queer read. I wish it was longer. I think the story having a time span of three months instead of one would’ve been better.
