In all seriousness, this book is too good to be true. Two girls, Saorise and Ruby, falling in love during a summer due to a falling in love montage like they have in all of the rom-coms. What could go wrong?
The book is fun and sweet and I love Ruby more than any other. Along with the romance there is a strong family aspect which I loved.
Overall, it's just a very VERY good book. 5 out of 5, literally perfect, stars.

Between healing, battling decisions of whether or not to attend Oxford, the strained relationship with her father, a sick mother, and a new girl in town, Saoirse is a character ...more
Folks...this was so heartwarming. I went in thrilled to find a goofy f/f romcom, and discovered instead something very sweet, poignant, and fun, that was full of personality & energy. And it also had one of my favourite things which is teenagers written like teenagers (even if that sometimes requires no parent apologies to happen).
Saoirse was a joy. An infuriating joy, but I ...more
