Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming ― mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger’s massive Twitter account.
Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in Pepper’s side. When he isn’t trying to duck out of his obscenely popular twin’s shadow, he’s busy working in his family’s deli. His relationship with the business that holds his future might be love/hate, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma’s iconic grilled cheese recipe, he’ll do whatever it takes to take them down, one tweet at a time.
All’s fair in love and cheese ― that is, until Pepper and Jack’s spat turns into a viral Twitter war. Read More.
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I love this book so much. It’s currently middle December and last night I finished Tweet Cute by Emma Lord and I absolutely loved it. It stayed up till past 1am reading this last night, even as my eyes were more or less half closed with sleep and stinging like crazy. I could not put it down!
There were so many things that I loved about this book, starting with the characters. Pepper and Jack were both so well written and bursting with personality. I loved them both as individuals but also it was so fun to read their interactions. So much banter!
I really enjoyed the writing style. This is told through alternating perspectives of both Jack and Pepper and it’s all written in first person. This can get confusing sometimes, especially for me who always forgets to look at which characters head we’re in at the start of the chapter but Tweet Cute was so easy to follow, again because Pepper and Jacks voices were so distinct.
I sadly had to put this book down around 20% in due to school/exams and all that fun stuff and although it had been a good 3 weeks since I’d last picked it up it was so easy to pick up where I’d left off. I actually ended up reading the rest of it in one night.
The plot itself was so much fun. A whole story around twitter wars and grilled cheeses! This is what I need more of in my life. I also loved the amount of meme content and gen Z humour. I am but a lonely teen who loves a good meme.
Something I really, really appreciated about Tweet Cute is how there’s a sort of rivalry between two girls and in this we see a great friendship blossom from that.
There’s also so much more to this story then I was expecting like the consequences of a parents divorce, familial expectations, the stress of school, etc.
Probably my favourite aspect of this book is how mature Jack and Pepper are and how they communicate. They don’t take things personally when it comes to the Twitter war, they acknowledge when they maybe overstep, they don’t get angry over silly things and best of all there’s no unnecessary drama or arguments. All of this is something I loved. There was no reason for me to be frustrated or feel the need to cringe at the characters actions like sometimes happens in ya romance novels and that really added to my enjoyment and reading experience.
Overall I absolutely loved this book, it’s a definite new favourite and I want to buy a physical copy as soon as it’s released. I highly, highly recommend this book!!!
