  • A cute YA read

    This was such a cute read. I loved Emma Lord's first book Tweet Cute so I was really excited to get an early copy of this one. You Have a Match was basically a 2020 retelling of parent trap, complete with some family drama, a summer camp setting and a prank war. I loved the two girls, Savvy and Abby and watching them overcome their differences and grow into their own. Plus Emma Lord lives up to her food queen status from Tweet Cute (I really wanted to try some of Leo's kitchen experiments, lasagna balls sound amazing). Also some great LGBTQ+ rep in the book which I loved. All in all, a great YA book and the perfect escape read for this year.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Heartfelt YA Novel

    This was a very sweet YA novel. There is romance, but it takes a backseat to the other plot points for most of the story. Truthfully, I would have liked for the romance aspect to have been explored more, but I understand why it wasn’t the main focus. I was very intrigued by the premise that a DNA test could lead to unexpected places and people. In You Have a Match, these results reveal long buried secrets and upend both Abby and Savannah’s lives. I appreciated how the story showcased the importance of families (both by choice and blood) and also friendships. I liked that the sisterhood developed at its own pace and didn’t just magically come together for Abby and Savannah. There is some typical YA drama (miscommunications and assumptions galore) that made the pacing feel a little slow and repetitive, but overall this was an entertaining and heartfelt novel. Audiobook Review Overall 4 stars Performance 4.5 stars Story 3.5 stars I enjoyed the narration by Eva Kaminsky and I thought she did a wonderful job voicing all of the characters uniquely. I didn’t have a problem differentiating between characters and her performance was fresh and also conveyed a lot of emotion. *I voluntarily read and listened to an advance review copy of this book*

  • Perfect summer read

    Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was SO EXCITED to be granted an ARC of You Have a Match! I loved Emma's first novel, Tweet Cute, so I was so ready to see what she would bring to the table next. You Have a Match was a unique family drama, with plenty of laughs and love along the way. There were so many twists and turns in such a good way. I could not put it down. This is my 4th book of 2021, and it's my first 4 star rating! The characters were all likable and relatable. I feel like i would have acted exactly like they did if I were a teen in their situations. The family dynamics were strong and in your face, which I find refreshing in a YA novel. Not many I have read has had the whole family front and center like this one. I want everyone to read this now, but it would honestly be a perfect summer read! Definitely recommend!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Wonderful characters and a lot of heart!

    I had a great time with this book. After enjoying Emma Lord's first book Tweet Cute, I was eager to give her work another try. I loved the description of this book so I had pretty high hopes going into this story. I was not disappointed and ended up finding this book to be very entertaining. Abby signs up for a DNA service along with her friend. Abby does not expect to learn that she has a sister out in the world that she has never heard about before. When Abby meets her sister, Savannah, they make a plan to go to camp together so they can piece together the secret behind Savannah's adoption. It turns out that she is going to the same camp as her crush and best friend, Leo, so she might actually figure out what is going on between the two of them. I liked Abby a lot. She wasn't perfect and she is dealing with a lot of things over the course of the story. I think that she handled things really well and she showed a lot of growth over the course of the story. Savannah is an Instagram star and seemed to be picture perfect at the start of the story. As the book progressed, we get to see the real Savannah and her flaws and she really started to grow on me. I loved all of the secondary characters that spent time with Abby and Savannah at camp. I think that they each added an important element to the story. I really liked seeing everything come together in this story. Abby and Savannah both learn a lot about themselves and their family over the course of this story. I thought that the bond that they developed felt very authentic. There was a bit of romance worked into the story which I thought added a wonderful element to the story. Each of the characters was dealing with their own issues and I thought that together this was a perfectly layered story. I would recommend this story to others. I thought that this was a fantastic story filled with wonderful characters, a focus on relationships, and a lot of heart. I wouldn't hesitate to read more of Emma Lord's work in the future. I received a digital review copy of this book from St. Martin's Press - Wednesday Books via NetGalley.

  • A delightful coming of age tale!

    Who knew a DNA test could reveal a family secret so big that nobody will be the same afterwards? When Abby discovers she has a sister that was given up for adoption before she was born, she's determined to not only know more about Savvy, but the reasons behind the lies. I enjoyed watching this story unfold, and was kept guessing what truly happened to cause the rift between families. Side note: I'm in a similar position and scared/excited to take the test, but this definitely gave the courage to move forward instead of always wondering "what if."

    Thanks for your feedback!
