Tweet Cute

Length: 358 pages

Genre: YA Contemporary

Rating: 5 Stars!


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. Little do they know, while they’re publicly duking it out with snarky memes and retweet battles, they’re also falling for each other in real life ― on an anonymous chat app Jack built.

As their relationship deepens and their online shenanigans escalate ― people on the internet are shipping them?? ― their battle gets more and more personal, until even these two rivals can’t ignore they were destined for the most unexpected, awkward, all-the-feels romance that neither of them expected.

My Review:

Okay so I am a sucker for light-hearted YA romance books and this was P E R F E C T! I have recently begun a bad habit of starting new books just before I’m about to sleep and not being able to stop reading. I read this book in about 24 hours, I just couldn’t put it down! Tweet Cute has a sort of frenemies to lover trope and it is told and explored in the best way.

The book is told from both Pepper and Jack’s point of view, which is one of the first contemporary YA books that I have read to do so. I really enjoyed experiencing the story from both perspectives as it made me feel more connected to the characters. Over the course of the book, Jack and Pepper grow and evolve from their stereotypical and constricting descriptions. The characters are complex and are relatable. As both Pepper and Jack are the children of business owners, there is a set-up for a bit of “No, that’s your dream, Dad”, but in Tweet Cute, the parents (at the end) appear to be understanding and accepting pretty much straight away.

One of the things that drew me to this book was the idea that whilst they were having the Twitter war and arguing in person, they were also speaking to each other anonymously. Whilst I was reading Tweet Cute, it gave me similar vibes of one of my favourite YA contemporary books that I can revisit over and over again, Alex, Approximately by Jane Bennet. Although it is something that has been done before, I knew I was going to love it and I did!

‘But I have to remind myself that Pepper is still the enemy, insanely flavoured milkshakes and memorable smirks and lingering handshakes aside.’

Ah honestly, this book makes my heart melt. The slow-burning romance between Jack and Pepper kept me reading as I wanted to know what happened asap. Obviously, there are a few obstacles thrown their way to prevent them having an easy time but the good thing is that none of the issues are serious, they don’t make you stop and think, well hang on, if person A has done that, then do they really deserve to be with person B.

I could not get enough of this book. 100% recommend to those who want a quick yet heart-warming read.

Keep reading
