Albertalli’s follow-up to Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda was just as good as the first book. The Upside of Unrequited focuses on Molly, cousin of Abby from the first book, as she deals with crushes and feelings of distance from her twin sister Cassie as Cassie starts her first real relationship. Molly decides that she needs to put herself out there in order to turn a crush into a boyfriend. Cassie pushes her towards hipster Will, but Molly can’t stop thinking about her co-worker, the nerdy, Tolkien loving Reid. It’s incredibly adorable and left me with a craving for edible cookie dough and mini Cadbury Creme Eggs.
