Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Title: The Upside of Unrequited30653853

Author/s: Becky Albertalli

Publication Date: April 11th 2017

Publisher: Harper Teen

Synopsis:

“I don’t entirely understand how anyone gets a boyfriend. Or a girlfriend. It just seems like the most impossible odds. You have to have a crush on the exact right person at the exact right moment. And they have to like you back.”

What does a sixteen-year-old girl have to do to kiss a boy? Molly Peskin-Suso wishes she knew. She’s crushed on twenty-six guys…but has kissed exactly none. Her twin sister Cassie’s advice to “just go for it” and “take a risk” isn’t that helpful. It’s easy for her to say: she’s had flings with lots of girls. She’s fearless and effortlessly svelte, while Molly is introverted and what their grandma calls zaftig.

Then Cassie meets Mina, and for the first time ever, Cassie is falling in love. While Molly is happy for her twin, she can’t help but feel lonelier than ever. But Cassie and Mina are determined to end Molly’s string of unrequited crushes once and for all. They decide to set her up with Mina’s friend Will, who is ridiculously good-looking, flirty, and seems to be into Molly. Perfect, right? But as Molly spends more time with Reid, her cute, nerdy co-worker, her feelings get all kinds of complicated. Now she has to decide whether to follow everyone’s advice…or follow her own heart.

Becky Albertalli’s Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda was one of my favorite books of 2015 and I can’t wait to get my hands on The Upside of Unrequited. The whole premise sounds incredibly relatable and I just know for a fact that Becky Albertalli will definitely make this one helluva cute read!
