Staff Reviews

Becky Albertalli's sophomore novel absolutely dazzled me. THE UPSIDE OF UNREQUITED is a pitch-perfect tale of what it's like to feel out of place and left behind as your friends (and family) pair up. Smart rom-coms are my jam, and Becky Albertalli is a master. I think I loved it even more than SIMON VS.!

"Heart-fluttering, honest, and hilarious. I can't stop hugging this book." --Stephanie Perkins, New York Times bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss

"I have such a crush on this book Not only is this one a must read, but it's a must re-read." --Julie Murphy, New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin'

From the award-winning author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda comes a funny, authentic novel about sisterhood, love, and identity.

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can't stomach the idea of rejection. So she's careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie's orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly's cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly's totally not dying of loneliness--except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie's new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she'll get her first kiss and she'll get her twin back.
There's only one problem: Molly's coworker, Reid. He's a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there's absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.
