About this deal

However, the main reason i didn't give this a higher rating was bc of the stupid third act conflict 🙈🙈 I swear, the unnecessary drama gave me a headache. Charlie and Bailey meet each other randomly a few times during the course of their early teenage life.

Because in the scene mentioned below she's in the kitchen to eat breakfast but in Colorado she apparently doesn't? I loved the beginning and the focus on divorced child syndrome and how kids feel in these situations as well as how it influences the mistrust kids have in the future. Lots of Gen Z relatable references throughout the story, which had me smurking a little every time I caught one which made reading a little more entertaining.i guess i understand why bailey wanted to do what she did, but i think she definitely could've gone about it better (by, ahem, communicating). I loved watching the friendship build between Charlie and Bailey and how they interacted with each other. Bailey and Charlie keep close track of the romantic progress of others while Charlie works to deflect the growing feelings he’s developed for Bailey. Charlie’s cynicism didn’t mix well with Bailey’s carefully well-behaved temperament, and his endless commentary was the irritating cherry on top of an already emotionally fraught trip. they are literally so cute, from the prequel i knew i was going to enjoy the book, but wow i did not expect to love it the way i did!

picture taking one of those trope booktok videos and dropping it into a PR blender and you have this book. The characters were so much fun to learn about, and I really liked having the dual perspective from Bailey and Charlie. in the beginning of the book he tries to come off as cool and different for not following laws but to me that only made him annoying. I found the plot of the story started off a little slow for my liking, but once we got into the details of the story I couldn’t put the book down.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I know I’ve sounded super down on this, but there were times I thought Charlie and Bailey had such cute interactions and were really great for each other. Soon enough feelings between Bailey and Charlie begin to develop with the help of some “fake dating” but Charlie has a secret.

By the second chapter I was pretty hooked because the internal dialogue and verbal exchanges between the characters was pretty realistic and often hysterical, in my opinion.

It's rare that I plow through a book and almost devour it, but in this case, I couldn't help myself. SPOILERS AHEAD - WARNING❗️❗️❗️ Also: Why did Aaron take Nekesa back if Bailey never took Zach back for DOING THE SAME THING?
