[REVIEW] Upside of Unrequited

First off, I would love to say that this is one of my favorite books that I have ever read. Such a sugar sweet romance with many heart wrenching, jealously driven, and homey moments. It’s a great read for anyone just getting around 16/17. That graduating age and moving on to the next parts of life.

The story revolves around Molly, who’s twin sister Cassie falls for a girl named Mina. The two go through many emotions and love quips to find out who they are to each other and their way in love.

Oh no’s

I hated that most of Molly’s actions were jealousy driven. I understand it was her character but to me it was a bit much.

I also believe that the sleepover they had with the boys was totally unrealistic. Especially since both their moms were home. I would never have a huge sleepover with boys and girls and just not check on them all periodically through the night.

To be honest, those were the only problems I had with this book!

Yay’s

I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved this book. It begins with introducing a character with two moms and a lesbian sister and I thought it was just a story using sexuality as a plot. Boy, was I wrong. This book has the perfect amount of representation and explanations for how love and jealousy works. This book went in depth with the changes that happen not only to us but also to people around us.

 I loved Reid’s character! He was my favorite person in the whole book. Every scene he was in, made me so happy. I also loved Mina and Cassie and their relationship together. The buildup and how they are as a couple was written so beautifully. This book had me reminiscing of the early times in my relationship. Ah, young love.

A few quotes I was a fan of:

“WHAT’S UP, CHEESECAKES? I’M JUST GOING TO STARE AT YOU FOREVER.”

Pg. 156

“Late bloomer? Mo, you’re seventeen.”

Pg. 314

Altogether, I absolutely suggest taking the time to give this book a quick read. It will give you the feels to the max, man.
