The Upside of Unrequited Review

Review by Amber

Molly has had many crushes – twenty-six, actually – but she is too bashful and uncomfortable in her own skin to believe any of them could like her back. Her twin sister, Cassie, is a social butterfly, and her new group of friends includes Will, a cute boy who might be Molly’s first kiss and reciprocated crush. At the same time, she works with a boy named Reid, a fan of Tolkien and Renaissance Faires, who makes her laugh and is easy to be around. Molly has to decide what is more important to her: Will’s conventional looks and societal expectations, or being herself and taking a risk. This fun book by the author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is relatable, funny, and almost impossible to put down.
