#BookReview: The Quantum Weirdness of the Almost-Kiss by @amynoelleparks






Synopsis: Caleb has always assumed that when she was ready for romance, Evie would choose him. Because he is her best friend, and he loves her, and he has almost kissed her 17 times... 

Seventeen-year-old Evie Beckham has never been interested in dating. She's been fully occupied by her love of mathematics and her frequent battles with anxiety (and besides, she's always found the idea of kissing to be a little bit icky). But with the help of her best friend and her therapist, Evie's feeling braver. Maybe even brave enough to enter a prestigious physics competition and to say yes to the new boy who's been flirting with her. 

Caleb Covic knows Evie isn't ready for romance but assumes that when she is, she will choose him. So Caleb is horrified when he is forced to witness Evie's meet cute with a floppy-haired, mathematically gifted transfer student. Because Caleb knows the girl never falls for the funny best friend when there's a mysterious stranger around, he decides to use an online forum to capture Evie's interest. Now, he's got Evie wondering if it's possible to fall in love with a boy she's never met. 

Told in the alternating voices of Evie and Caleb, THE QUANTUM WEIRDNESS OF THE ALMOST KISS is a YA romantic comedy, sure to satisfy fans of Jenny Han, Rainbow Rowell and Stephanie Perkins.

My Review: This friends to lovers, first loves story was wonderfully adorable!! I loved that we got to see both sides of how everyone felt it made it well rounded and just so cute!!  I loved all the banter and inner feelings that each character had.  I loved how Evie was created with anxiety and panic attacks. It just made her feel real as well as dealing with real life issues.  I think teens that have the same illness will enjoy how this was portrayed and will see themselves in her. Calab on the other had was a boy that shows you that guys can be sensitive and so adorable.  Side characters were amazing and cute and I just couldn't get enough of them.   

Overall this one hit all the points in the overly adorable story category.
