I loved this. A lot.

This book was advertised as having a similar feel to This Is Us, and it delivered. Jessi should know better than to start fake-dating her ex, Luke, who hates her, just to make Luke's dying mother happy. "Should" being the operative word. She finds it impossible to resist being pulled back into the Cohens' world. Told in a split timeline, the reader follows Jessi both before and after the horrific event that ripped her relationship with the Cohens apart.

Before: When Jessi was seven, the Cohens be

I absolutely loathe love triangles where a character is torn between two siblings, but the synopsis of this book had me in tears so I'll guess I'll give it a shot!

Jessi hasn't had the best childhood, with her barely function depressive mother and avoidant father, but she still had a family- The Cohens, a family that chose her. Watching Mel, the best maternal figure she has, slowly wither away had been the absolute hardest thing for her. But now, a year later, something even worse has come to pass. Torn between missing the people she once thought of as her family, and the guilt that k

Thanks to the publisher for providing an eARC of Some Other Now in exchange for an honest review.

I honestly think that the "This Is Us for teenagers" comparison ruined this book for me. It's not bad. It's a little cliche and predicatble and its protagonist read as incredibly self-centered and annoying, but its all in all a decent story and Everett's writing is so wonderful that it saves it for me.

The Kissing Booth would probably be a better comparison if you removed the com part of romcom.

Reminded me of Kissing Booth (Netflix film), but then slightly less cliché. I was really annoyed by the main character at times. Her inferiority complex and self sacrificial behaviour really annoyed me at times. But then I read a very early draft of the book, so it might be different when it comes out. Either way, I enjoyed reading it a lot.

This book made me feel the entire range of emotions - sadness, joy, pity, dread, and most importantly, hope. It tugged at my heartstrings and had me tearing up at times, simply because of how relatable and well-written it was.

I'll remember the book for years to come.
