#BookReview: It's Kind of a Cheesy Love Story by @laurenemorrill






Synopsis: A delicious love story with all the toppings, Lauren Morrill's It's Kind of a Cheesy Love Story is a contemporary YA rom-com about love, friendship, and pizza, perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli and Jenny Han.

After her mother gave birth to her in the bathroom of a local pizzeria, Beck Brix been given the dubious privilege of having minor fame, free pizza for life, and a guaranteed job when she turns sixteen—a job she unfortunately can’t afford to turn down.

Stuck with her geeky co-workers instead of taking Instagram-ready shots with her wealthy, photogenic friends, Beck finally realizes what she’s spent her whole life trying to hide: that Hot ‘n Crusty is a part of her.

Then disaster strikes the beloved pizza parlor that’s become like home, and Beck realizes that it takes losing something to really know what it’s worth.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review: This was a cute us vs them story about a girl who just needs to get by.  I liked the dynamics of the characters but felt that the entire rich vs. poor theme wasn't done very well.  Beck seemed like the kind of person who could be friends with anyone and she wouldn't change who she is on the inside because of it.  Which made her a very likable character.  I think that this one would be best suited to those who are moving into young adult books from higher middle grade.  As this is an easy. clean, story with all the pizza feels!
