Product description


"The story intricately explores the teenagers' quirky relationships and the notion of what it takes to feel comfortable in one's own skin. Sophia's character is authentically geeky, and readers will empathize with her anxiety."

"Neuroatypical characters, nerdiness, social anxiety, intelligence, and magic make this book stand out among other contemporary romances."

"Readers struggling with social and personal interaction issues, awkwardness about fitting into their community, and uncertainty about where their future may take them will embrace this novel"

"Excellent character development of the protagonists (Sophia and Elsie are 'brown girls' of South Asian descent; Joshua is white), their diverse group of friends, and their families (Elsie's brothers, especially, are a hoot) makes the romantic relationship just one among several satisfying story strands, and witty dialogue keeps pages turning." --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
