Tweet Cute

A fresh, irresistible rom-com from debut author Emma Lord about the chances we take, the paths life can lead us on, and how love can be found in the opposite place you expected.

Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming ― mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger’s massive Twitter account.

Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in Pepper’s side. When he isn’t trying to duck out of his obscenely popular twin’s shadow, he’s busy working in his family’s deli. His relationship with the business that holds his future might be love/hate, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma’s iconic grilled cheese recipe, he’ll do whatever it takes to take them down, one tweet at a time.

All’s fair in love and cheese ― that is, until Pepper and Jack’s spat turns into a viral Twitter war. Little do they know, while they’re publicly duking it out with snarky memes and retweet battles, they’re also falling for each other in real life ― on an anonymous chat app Jack built.

As their relationship deepens and their online shenanigans escalate ― people on the internet are shipping them?? ― their battle gets more and more personal, until even these two rivals can’t ignore they were destined for the most unexpected, awkward, all-the-feels romance that neither of them expected. - excerpt from Goodreads.

Tweet Cute by Emma Lord is about two teenagers that is caught up in the twitter war and little did they know there's more to it at stake than they realise. I like how the story centers around our current digital age, even though I'm not caught up with the Twitter jargons or memes , anything related to the current social media norm, I was not lost in the book. The social media is a unique touch to the story, an aspect that helps bring out a side of the characters. The POV is between Pepper and Jack which is always a fun bit in a rom com setting, both individual have really different struggles that stems from the twitter war. Their actions varies when interacting with others and I love how they slowly grow in family relationships and also discovering a path for their lives. I love it when they interact with each other, it's the motivation for me to keep reading on. Supporting characters kinda influences their reactions and decisions because in a teenager's life, peer pressure is the strongest as well as competition.

I would say at certain points, the plot is super interesting and certain incidents are there to boost the story and move it forward. Overall, it's enjoyable and super adorable. Drama is not the main essence of this book and given the nature of their school and the class of people that goes to this school, it's no gossip girl level drama. It is pretty mild actually, more realistic I would think.

Without a doubt this was a quick read, with emphasis on relationships and growth that matters. A slice of life is the genre that I would relate it to. The setting and the premise was fun, I could picture New York in my head through the author's eyes. Those enjoy books from Jenny Han, Morgan Matson and Stephanie Perkins will certainly be entertained by this as it's the same vibes. This books brings back fond memories of young love and high school crushes back in the day for me.
