The Upside of Unrequited

Becky Albertalli

From Albertalli (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, 2015) comes a funny, authentic novel about sisterhood, love, and identity. Seventeen-year-old twins Molly and Cassie are inseparable despite being wildly different. Dark-haired and plus-sized, Molly has always felt inferior to her confident sister Cassie who is blonde and slender. But when Cassie, a lesbian, begins dating Mina, Molly suddenly feels cast aside. Although she’s had 26 crushes, Molly has never had a boyfriend. Cassie hopes to change all that by having her sister date Mina's best friend, Will. But Molly is more interested in her sweet but geeky co-worker Reid. Facing rejection for the 27th time, she'll have to choose between the boy she actually likes and the one who seems ideal.
