Pepper goes to a private high school in New York City, where she’s lived since she was 14. Her parents own a fast food chain. She doesn’t feel like she fits in at her school and her mother has left her to be in charge of the company’s Twitter feed. Enter Jack. He’s a senior at Pepper’s school and his parents own Girl Cheesing, a deli. Girl Cheesing accuses Big League Burger of stealing their grilled cheese recipe. Let the Twitter War begin.
Tweet Cute could easily be pigeon-holed as a YA Rom-Com and left to teenage girls to read. If you did that, you would be missing out on a delightful book. It may be because I have kids that are about this age, but I loved the story. It has the perfect combination of snark and sweet. It’s a magic recipe. The characters are likable and well-developed. It’s a sweet story that discusses things that all teens and people can relate to – interpersonal relationships with your parents, peers, and sibling; misunderstanding a person’s motives; social awkwardness; and peer pressure. The story flows as easily as the banter between Jack and Pepper.
This was just the book I needed. It was light and sweet and refreshing. I thoroughly enjoyed it. And you will, too.
