ARC Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Abertalli Spoiler Free

The Upside of Unrequited is a quirky contemporary novel about seventeen year old Molly. She's the fat kid that has never had her first kiss and feels self conscious. This book is about her growing up to not only love herself but live her life to the fullest! Honestly this summary sucks but trust me, there is so much more to this book than what I just wrote. 

Moving on... 


I really enjoyed Abertalli's debut novel, Simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda but this book was just, wow. This book is seriously the best YA contemporary that I have read this year! The character is so relatable and the struggles that she went through were some that I could seriously relate with. But through her struggles, she isn't a sappy or pathetic. Her humor in this whole entire book was so hilarious I was just laughing throughout the whole book! 

The characters in this book are awkward, funny, cute and just what every other high school kid out there is like. Just like her debut novel, this novel also deals with LGBTQ and I also enjoyed reading about that because there aren't a lot of YA fiction out there these days that explore this topic. 

This is an ARC review so I can't say much but all I have to say is when it comes out, GO PICK IT UP! Like, don't even hesitate. You won't regret it! I give this book a solid 5/5 stars! Honestly, I am still in shock with how much I loved this book! I usually don't lean towards contemporary novels but this With that being said, this is a MUST read book! 

Check this book out when it comes out in April 2017! 

Thank you for reading my review!
