I was given the chance to read this book via the publisher granting my Netgalley wishlist. It’s the first time it ever happened to me, so thank you so much, St. Martin’s Press! 🥰
I requested for this book because of the promise of cutesy giddy slight love-hate romance between the two leads. Before I go further with my review, let me just say this: the book met my expectations.
In this story, we meet Pepper and Jack. Pepper is the smart overachiever and the daughter of giant fast food chain Big League Burger’s owners. Jack is the class clown who feels that he is overshadowed by his twin and he is the son of the owner of the deli, Girl Cheesing.
When BLB introduces a grilled cheese on their menu, Girl Cheesing called copycat on Twitter which began a Twitter war. Both Pepper and Jack have control on each company’s twitter account and they focus on trying to one up the other.
In the world where Twitter wars happening everyday, and brands being snarky and meme-addicted, this was such a fun book to read.
I love getting inside the minds of both Pepper and Jack, especially when they use the anonymous chat app, Weazel. Both Pepper and Jack were loving and responsible children and watching them learn more about each other while learning about themselves was such a great experience.
Though fun and cheesy, this book also hits serious notes like pursuing your passions, sibling rivalries, friendship, honesty, education, and deciding on your career paths.
All in all, this was a great debut for other Emma Lord. Congratulations! I cannot wait to get my hands on the final copy when it hits the shelves next year!
