A companion to her hit debut Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, Becky Albertalli continues to dive into teen romance and drama with an LGBT twist.

Molly Peskin-Suso has had 26 unrequited. Her twin sister Cassie falls hard and fast for a girl named Mina and tries to set her up with Mina’s friend Will. While Molly thinks he’s cute, she’s also falling for her coworker Reid. Now is her time to act on love, but which one?

You’ll quickly fall in love with Molly. She’s sweet and it’s hard to see her separating from her twin, but heartwarming to see her come into her own.

There are Simon references with Molly’s cousin being Abby Suso who makes appearances alongside Simon and Nick. It’ll make you want to revisit that novel as well.

Final say: Sweet if not fully solid. ★★★★☆
