I LOVED Molly! They way Albertalli portrays Molly is so relatable - Molly is just a young girl trying to figure herself out. She has insecurities about her body, many crushes on boys she believes could never like her back, she fights with her moms and her twin sister, and has to navigate the changes in her relationship with her sister as Cassie gets her first girlfriend. Molly also gets a job for the summer and meets a boy she can be herself around, but believes she has no feelings for him. As she finds herself thinking about him more and more and wanting to talk to him all the time, Molly starts to realize she might have been wrong.

The writing was so spectacular for all of these characters and I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times at how Albertalli can turn a phrase. This was such a cute story about first serious relationships and the ways in which families navigate the changes those relationships bring.
