    It's so many love stories, but those are the only stories.

    This book is really sweet, but beware to those with anxieties about love or self-perception. I found myself really identifying with our narrator, Molly, and maybe cried a few times when her emotions were getting really amped up. Her story is one that is fun and easy to read when you're in the mood for every possible version of sappy love story through the starry eyes of seventeen. I wish there had been a little more plot than finding a boyfriend, especially a plot that I couldn't have found the conclusion to in the basic summary of the book available on Kobo, but this really was a joy to read. Would recommend to my students; am hesitating to recommend to anyone else.

    The Upside of an Amazing Book

    This book, like Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, was a story full of sweetness and smiles; of happiness and sadness; of sad rawness and happy reality. The Upside of Unrequited is another book written to make one smile, to bring a voice to marginilised communities. Its author, Becky Albteralli, does this very well. There is a realness to her books, a relatability to her characters, that make the stories so easy to read and follow along with; leaving you rooting for more. The Upside of Unrequited tells the story of Molly. A Jewish girl; an overweight girl, a girl who is losing touch with her twin sister and her best friend. Her sister, Cassie, gets into a relationship with another girl (Mina) and from that moment on, the two start drifting apart and Molly isn't sure she's happy with what is happening between her and Cassie. It is a story of romance, of siblings slowly drifting apart and of how someone can get lost in the negativity of their self-image. It's a novel that made me smile several times (the Lin Manuel Miranda reference had me literally almost squealing in the train and don't get me started on when Simon showed up). The novel made me sad a couple of times. In the end, I'm incredibly glad I read it. I would give the world to get more stories written by Becky Albertalli.
