This contemporary YA novel is also told in alternating points of view. It seems to be a 2020 trend. Anyway, I’m all there for it.
This cute story has the two main characters in a Meg Ryan/Tom Hanks You’ve Got Mail type situation. The twist is that their parents each own a competing burger joint in NYC. They are chatting together on a school-based app, neither knowing the other IRL or that they are both in an Epic Twitter War of tweets and memes against each other at night while attending school together all day.
I’d be shocked if someone doesn’t option this for a movie, it’s so adorable.
I gave it five stars on Goodreads. Publication date: January 21, 2020
