The Written Review
Unless you've been under a rock for the last four years, everyone knows Rowan and Neil hate each other.

It all started with a clash in class, then spiraled into student council elections and next thing you know, anything thing that could be construed as a competition because a life-or-death battle for Rowan and Neil.

When Neil is named valedictorian, Rowan finds herself filled with...emptiness.

Y'all, I have been anticipating this book since it was originally pitched as a "YA mix of the Hating Game + Dazed and Confused" and I am SO HAPPY TO SAY that this was exactly what I was hoping it would be and honestly just an all-around perfect YA contemporary for me. I laughed, I teared up, I SWOONED. It has my favorite trope (enemies to lovers) set in one of my favorite cities (Seattle) and it was just so perfect in every way.

Rachel Lynn Solomon's Today Tonight Tomorrow is a precious love letter to the city of Seattle, as well as a celebration of first love.

Sticky sweet in every way, I absolutely adored this High School Romantic Contemporary.

It's the last day of Senior year, and Rowan Roth wants nothing more than to beat her archenemy and academic rival, Neil McNair, one last time.

The two have been in a brutal competition with one another since the start of high school, coming in first and second at almost EVERYTHIN

I want to wrap it in softest blankets, treating it chilled Chardonnay and strawberry cheesecake ice cream. ( that’s how I show my kindness to my loved ones. But of course my Chardonnay treat is limited with one glass😆)🥂🍨

This was the sweetest, smartest, most entertaining and also most thought provoking, brilliant novel and I can honestly say this is so far my favorite young adult reading.

It reminds you of Mindy Kalling’s Netflix series Never Have I Ever’s frenemies

So much to love about Rachel Lynn Solomon's new book, Today Tonight Tomorrow .

Neil and Rowan have been bitter rivals all four years of high school. From an essay contest freshman year, they’ve battled over everything—grades, SAT scores, pull-ups in gym class, college acceptances—they even had to be student council co-presidents. They constantly taunt and torture one another, and Rowan is hoping that today, the last day of high school, she’ll be named valedictorian over h

Rachel Lynn Solomon's first two books were hard hitting, bitter sweet books so when I learned that her newest one would be light & fun, I was ready.
It did not disappoint either! This book takes place in a day and is fun and romantic and gives you all the Seattle vibes! It made my 10 things I hate about you heart so happy.
Also I Love how Solomon weaves the Jewish faith into each one of her books. I don't know nearly enough about the Jewish faith and I always appreciate learning more.
A fun boo

this book made me realize even more what a shitty high school experience i had and how much i missed. sometimes i either got too caught up in the moment, or i didn't get caught in the moment at all. but yknow, i'm a college sophomore now, and i can't go back. i can only look back at my memories, at the people i met and the people i lost. i can look back at the laughs, tears, and smiles i let. at the exams i cheated on, tests i didn't study for, homework i ignored, activities i wasn't a part of.

okay. this was really cute.

like actually maybe too cute.

like i'm in pain.

Update: this beautiful and amazing gem of a book is out now.

An exquisite book that manages to convey so many beautiful feelings at once. Today Tonight Tomorrow has a delicious format usually seen in movies, where all the events happen during the final day of high school for Rowan Roth and Neil McNair.

In the four years, they both have been attending the same school they have been rivals competing for everything, from grades, a position on the student council, science projects, and most recently

Opposites attract is my favorite trope, so it made sense to start there. Because, of course, the thing about opposites: they always have a lot more in common than they think.
Rowan Roth has a lot of things happening on her last day of high school. Will she be named valedictorian, or will that honor go to her arch rival and nemesis, Neil McNair? There’s the Howl, a game for the graduating Seniors that’s one part Senior Tag and one part scavenger hunt around Seattle. She also has plans to go to a b

Well meaning and progressive, but très boring and cheesy. I stopped when baring of the soul and crying started.

Why are these romcoms never funny?

This should have been a slam dunk for me ~ enemies-to-love, Seattle setting, and a YA rom-com. As it stands, I'm having a hard time finding things that I really liked. Mostly, it was was mediocre to frustrating for me.

I was immediately bothered by the personality and attitude of the heroine. From experience with one of my favorite tropes, I know that first impressions and character personalities can shift, but I never really warmed up to Rowan or her personality. I had liked Neil more, bu

this piece of work had me putting my hands to my chest, screaming, rolling around and literally falling off my bed. everything, every single part that constitutes this book was perfect.
the story is based on rowan, a hard-working girl who deeply loves romance novels (same) and who is a writer. she has spent her entire high school years competing with neil; a quirky, intelligent boy. we are able to witness how their relationship begins with banter and turns into something more, something even bett

This was such an unexpected cute read that got me out of my head into a fun scavenger hunt and an enemies to friends, to lovers, read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Definitely one that will take you away, give you a good time and both relate and grow to love these two way overachievers that almost missed out on something great.
So glad I too, took a chance, dove in and had a great, heartwarming time.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm delighted to announce that I've found my favourite YA Contemporary Romance of this year, or maybe of all time!!

Since I've read the synopsis of this book, I was
excited to read it, also the cover and title were so complementary to each other, I kind of had an instinct that I'll like it. But well, I loved it!!

Also I would like to share this quote from the book-

I confess that I was a little sad when I learned Rachel Lynn Solomon wasn’t going to be writing more YA books that dealt with serious chronic illness. She does that so well and I was looking forward to the next one. That said, this rom com with two graduating seniors who have a serious enemies-to-lovers vibe going on was simply adorable. McNair and Rowan have competed in everything all throughout high school. Every assignment. Every school club. Every attendance award. They are so wrapped up in ...more

this book made me so SOFT

Today Tonight Tomorrow takes place in just one day and that makes everything just feel so magical. Somehow the author manages to fit everything in that time period - we get to know the characters, see their inner struggles, see them develop, feel their chemistry, root for them, cry with them and laugh with them.
I LOVE stories that happen during just a day and they are extremely hard to do right, imo, but this one was perfect.

I loved this so, so much. It's difficult to pull off a book set entirely in one day, but Rachel Lynn Solomon knocked it out of the park with this. The romance and the character growth felt perfectly developed within the limited time frame. Plus, the premise of this book was just so much fun-- a scavenger hunt around Seattle where two archnemeses have to pair up as they grapple with high school coming to an end AND their confusing feelings for one another? *chef's kiss* In many ways, this book is ...more

I’m hard-pressed to name a contemporary book I’ve loved more than this one so far this year. Wow.

If you want a sweet enemies to lovers story layered with the bittersweet moments of leaving what you know behind to venture onward to new adventures AND some mega self growth, look no further.

This book was a delight in every way. I dare you not to end up falling in love with Rowan and Neil!

Highly recommended!

So much fun & feeling squeezed into one day! Solomon's characters are always so well rounded, and it's no different with this contemporary romance. A short time span (~1 day), graduation season, and huge rivalry lead to so many silly things & really intense emotions. ...more
