Tweet Cute has to be one of the most memorable contemporary YA romances I've read in a long time. Every page of this book was a delight. Charming and funny don't even begin to do the book justice.

We've all seen the social media "feuds" that Wendy's likes to get in on Twitter. The concept of this book here is the same, but only much much cuter and more romantic. Pepper and Jack handle their parents' businesses' social media account. They also happen to go to the same school in NYC. I found both Pepper and Jack to be well-layered and well-developed characters. Pepper is a smart and hardworking young woman who is very determined about the future she wants. She has had a few struggles with fitting in after her move from Nashville. She still misses Nashville and the life that she had there. Jack is an equally smart boy with some amazing coding skills, who often feels shadowed by his brighter, and more attention-attracting twin, Ethan. I liked how throughout Tweet Cute these characters remained true to themselves. The tweet wars and the attention could have easily gotten to their heads, but you also get to see their sudden social media popularity affects them. I have no doubt that many readers will fall for Pepper and Jack along the way and root for their growths and happiness.

The romance played out so beautifully too in Tweet Cute. While also feuding with each other, pulling each other's legs in real life (JK that's more of Jack's thing), the two have been chatting on an anonymous app that Jack has created. So, there is definitely a lot going with these two and their connection and friendship felt authentic. Their banter and chemistry was excellent. I promise you're going to swoon! I'm most certainly going to be revisiting them in the future. I also genuinely loved the entire secondary cast in Tweet Cute. Sure they all have some bumps, but they are all entirely relatable. I particularly enjoyed the bonds that Pepper and Jack shared with their respective families. Tweet Cute also tackles a few themes relevant to teens and adults seamlessly, including the pressures and uncertainties that one can feel regarding the future.

If Tweet Cute is representative of the kind of books that are releasing in 2020, then we're all in for a treat. It's such a wholesome and feel-good book. It will certainly leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy, and eagerly anticipating whatever Emma Lord releases next.
