IF WE WERE US
By K.L. Walther
Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
A light-hearted YA rom-com novel for high-schoolers contemplating relationships, college, and adulthood. This dual POV story, set in a boarding school, focuses on Sage and Charlie, lifelong best friends.
During the course of the story, Sage falls in love with Charlie's twin—Nick. While Charlie, who is coming to terms with his sexual identity, falls for a family friend—Luke.
The alternating POV chapters in this story work well and allow for deeper character development, though their voices could have been a little more distinctive.
There are plenty of small plot twists and bumps to keep up the pace and ensure readers stay engaged and turning pages.
A fun summer read.
