Signed, sealed, delivered... While spacing out in Chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favorite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk, and added a message to her. Intrigue! Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters -- sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she's kind of falling for this letter writer. Only who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery, and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can't always be spelled out... Kasie West brings irresistible wit, warmth, and sparkle to this swoon-worthy story of love showing up when you least expect it.

This book is cute with a capital cute.

WHAT I LIKED: The characters, they weren't very, like, out there or anything but they felt very real,and very true to real life. Everything about them seemed like something, or someone I can actually see, and feel. They felt real. So A plus.

The letters: I was a total sucker for the letters, the secrecy--the whole secret admirer vibe. It made me swoon, and I was just as excited to see who the other person was, as Lily was.

Isabel: She was never catty, or overly pushy. She wasn't the standard best friend that seem to jump into the pages of some of these novels. She was supportive, even when she might not have wanted to be. She was a true friend, and I can get with that.

Her family: Aww, man they were so dysfunctional--but they were stars of the show. Her brothers--were so, brotherly. Her Mom and Dad were funny. I kind of wish there was more of them in the story.

Discovering who the letters were from: This was the cutest part of the book, the reveal. I don't want to get into it because it feels spoiler-y but it was the cutest of cuteness. I really liked how it all concluded.

I don't have any dislikes or qualms, I was happy-and in a cuteness coma--no complaints here!

A nice addition to any YA contemporary lovers shelf.

Be yourself, even when you don’t fit in!
Two teenagers who both felt like something was missing in their lives and expressed themselves through the words of their favorite bands.
Discovering who the letters were from was the cutest part of the book. Despite everything she had learned about her anonymous pen pal from his letters, Lily couldn’t get past her own prejudices against him. She struggled to find herself, while he was the exact opposite of her. I really liked how it all concluded.

This book is an enjoyable read that will make you smile the entire way through :D My only complaint is that I didn’t want it to end.
I wanted more!
Good Points
There was a lot of highs and lows and I followed along the emotional rollercoaster with Lily.

So at first when I got this book from Owlcrate, I wasn't sure if I wanted to read it. It sounded okay but then again I'm not that into contemporary reads. I had just read The Lovely Reckless though and wanted another super easy read. That's what I consider all contemporary reads, easy. There isn't much to world building to them and no new words we've never seen before. They they are the kind of books, I can just lose myself without struggle.

This one took me a little while to get into. Our main character Lily... she's really stuck in her own head. She's kind of selfish sometimes and maybe just a little to mean at times. So I didn't like her much till the end when she started to get better. She started to see the world as it was not through these mean colored glasses.

Cade on the other hand is actually a lot better than her and he's got problems too. That is something I will give this book, the characters are real. No one is too perfect. So the author did a great job. The writing is nice. The plot is pretty dang cute and simple, easy to follow. Overall, a fun read.
