Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

Sweet, fun, and all the right ingredients for a delicious read.

The Story

Pepper is an overachiever, straight A’s, follow-all-of-the-rules, perfectionist teen.  She is the ideal candidate as an ivy leaguer, with a resume to impress any college interviewer, cleverer tweets, and a way of making yummy desserts (Monster cake, need I saw more???).

Then there’s Jack (swoon).  The handsome identical twin who feels like he lives in the shadow of his perfect, popular and equally gorgeous brother.  Jack’s trying to pursue his own ambitions (which apparently no one knows about, or rather, knows he’s the brains behind it) without disappointing his parents.

But when Pepper’s mother’s fast food chain posts a tweet about their grilled cheese sandwich, Twitter war breaks out between Big League Burger’s and Jack’s family owned deli.  And in the thick of this twitter tirade are these two teens and how they both try to live up to their parents expectations while trying to maintain the integrity of their parents’ eateries.

My Thoughts

Tweet Cute was such a fun read.  The story is cleverly written with the best ingredients of an enemies-to-lovers trope, (I mean Lord is brilliant her characters names are Pepper and Jack: Pepper-jack), social media rivalry equal to Romeo & Juliet (any teen will be feasting on the Twitter rant between these two) including relatable teenage pressures, anxieties, and expectations set by their parents. 

Jack and Pepper are such enduring characters because they have the same real experiences, the same reservations and insecurities that any teen can identify with.  High School can be a battle ground where no instructions are included and these two make the journey to find out what they really want and who they want to be an irresistible one.

Hilarious! Adorable and a fresh new story of YA romance. I enjoyed every page.

Emma Lord is my new favorite author!
