It’s been a week since I finished Tweet Cute by Emma Lord and I’m still thinking about it.
I used to read YA contemporaries all the time and then I sort of just stopped. (I also discovered my love of YA fantasy + reading more adult fiction) so that may be part of it.
But after NetGalley + Wednesday books sent me an e-arc (advanced readers copy), I fell in love with this genre again.
Tweet Cute is a YA contemporary that follows Pepper and Jack, two teens who are basically part of the Upper East Side in New York but feel like they don’t fit in. Pepper’s parents are the creators and owners of a large restaurant franchise and Jack’s parent’s run a small ma and pa deli.
When the big restaurant chan comes out with a new grilled cheese sandwich that is almost exactly the same, name included as the one at Jack’s family deli, he unintentionally starts a Twitter war. Pepper and Jack decide to keep up the Twitter war (since they are the ones running the accounts) because it’s been good for business. They also start to become friends in the process.
Tweet Cute was hilarious, heartwarming, and loveable. I loved Pepper and her love for baking. I felt for her when her mom kept pushing to keep things going on Twitter, even though they had a hired social media manager who should have been doing the job. I loved watching Pepper and Jack fall for each other in real life and over the chat, they have anonymously on the app Jack created for their school.
If you love You’ve Got Mail, I think you’ll love this book. It was sweet and so much fun.
I loved it so much that I bought an actual copy with my fun money this month!
The story goes fast and if you’ve been looking for a lighter read, I definitely think you should check this one out! Read more about Tweet Cute in this post!
