About this deal

So I thought if I gave you my cat, it would be this big gesture because you know how much I love him. We really saw both of our main characters come together through shared experiences and the feeling of having their lives turned upside down.

Lots of Gen Z relatable references throughout the story, which had me smurking a little every time I caught one which made reading a little more entertaining. I was a bit frustrated at the characters at times, especially when they arbitrarily had arguments or miscommunicated for no reason, but I really loved the plot and pets in this book. I found the plot of the story started off a little slow for my liking, but once we got into the details of the story I couldn’t put the book down. his inner monologue was everything, the way he canceled a party at his house because SHE NEEDED HIM? this book was nice, in the sense that they didn't have sex and i don't have to burn my eyes, but i think the lesson to take from this are that cute little moments, banter, or sex won't make up for plot-holes and character issues.When seventeen-year-old Bailey starts a new job at a hotel waterpark, she is less than thrilled to see an old acquaintance is one of her coworkers.

The writing was so quick witted, the scenes so heartfelt and the characters so authenticity teenagers, that it will likely be one of my favourite books of the year.what i legitimately disliked about bailey was how she valued a relationship with a random guy over her best friend's feelings.

charlie’s a creep and bailey reminds me of one of those kids that says her experience with ‘just dance’ deserves some kind of therapy. over the span of three years, they saw each other once or twice until one day they end up working at the same waterpark. She has a way of creating such interesting characters, taking a simple plot, adding a bunch of hilarious shenanigans and making it a 5 star read. Soon, what Charlie was hoping to avoid becomes a reality as Bailey starts to see him as not only a friend she can rely on in the midst of family drama—but someone who makes her hands shake and heart race. Now, Bailey and Charlie are still polar opposites, but instead of everything about him rubbing Bailey the wrong way, she starts to look forward to hanging out and gossiping about the waterpark guests and their coworkers—particularly two who keep flirting with each other.charlie remembered the little things about bailey, and he was always so so so sweet, caring, and supportive. Theo was a terrible character, Nekesa wasn't there enough and Scott's niece and daughter were mentioned once or twice. Their friendship was fantastic and I loved how it started to become more especially after the fake dating weekend. SPOILERS AHEAD - WARNING❗️❗️❗️ Also: Why did Aaron take Nekesa back if Bailey never took Zach back for DOING THE SAME THING?

Some of their early interactions felt a bit childish but they are children so look, it’s understandable. her internal conflict with her parents’ divorce and her mom’s new boyfriend were well done and i liked how everything wrapped up in that regard. By the second chapter I was pretty hooked because the internal dialogue and verbal exchanges between the characters was pretty realistic and often hysterical, in my opinion. spoiler* For real though, if someone was going to give me their pet that they loved more than almost anything, just to prove to me that they would never leave me.for someone who is literally constantly looking for even one comfort read in this cold, cold world, and for someone who constantly hates all of them, this was huge.
