When I started reading this book, I was in the middle of the biggest reading slump ever. This was fresh, fun, cute, and got me through my reading slump nicely.
Some of the teenage drama scenes that would've usually made me cringe were surprisingly enjoyable for me. And it was really fresh to read main characters in a YA book who were serious about their education, ambitious about their life goals, and knew what they wanted to pursue!
Great, fun read. Can't wait to read more from the Author.
Pepper has to take control of her mom’s massive food chain (BLB) twitter account whilst barely juggling her school duties. Enter Jack, and his twin shadow, Ethan who work at their family’s deli. However, when BLB apparently ”steals” Jack’s grandma special grilled cheese recipe, Jack and Pepper start a cheese and banter war on twitter. All is fun and fair until their war goes viral.
Unknown to Pepper and Jack, they are also forming another friendly-romantic relationship on an anonymous chat app Jack built. As this battle on Twitter gets more personal and the anonymous app could reveal Pepper’s identity, even these two rivals can't ignore their awkward affection for each other.
This might be my favourite YA contemporary read so far!! This book had a practical storyline that was so easy to understand (my twitter account is not functioning though😂). The characters!!!! I loved Pepper-Jack!! The side characters were fantastic as well. This was a fantastic debut.
3.5 Stars Tweet Cute is the perfect modern teen romance story set in a Gossip Girl style Manhattan school. Pepper's family owns a large chain restaurant and Jack's a small New York deli. After some accusations of a stolen recipe a Twitter war ensues between the two brands. The premise is interesting and the plot is very week written with a lot of witty moments, pop culture references, and great pacing. However, after the Twitter plot dies down the book loses momentum, mixing a bunch of other conflicts that don't land as neatly. At the end I was a bit over some characters that just had terrible personalities (*cough Pepper's mom, Jack's dad, and Ethan *cough). But overall this was a just a sweet read. I liked it, I just didn't love it.
I LOVED this - so much fun and exactly the uplifting, sweet, funny and wholesome read I was looking for during lockdown. It's got lots of great YA tropes but never felt cliched, and is fresh and fun without ever feeling cringy. The Twitter battles, the baking & the clean romance combined to make a book that made me feel so much better after reading it than I did before (and made me really want to try baking Monster Cake). I bought it on my Kindle but will be buying a physical copy because I want to be able to see this book on my bookshelf! And I'll definitely be pre-ordering Emma's next book, YOU HAVE A MATCH.
