I received an arc of this book in exchange for an honest review. A big thank you to NetGalley and Chronicle Books for sending this to me.
I really wanted to love this book but it fell a little bit flat. Del is a 17 year old girl who is trying to balance the family owned business and life. Besides the cafe, she also left school because she was being bullied by a group of girls.
There was so much going on in this book. We had trouble with friends and family, past relationships, pinning for a new love, difficulties of coming out of the closet. There were so many plots but so little book to take each one on.
The romance between Del and her crush felt tacked on and rushed compared to the rest of the book.
This was a fun contemporary that sank under all of its storylines.
I gave this book a C
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
