REVIEW: Tweet Cute by Emma Lord


"I really need to get my daughter a copy of this book."

"I know a ton of my students would love reading this."

These were the thoughts that I had on repeat once I got about a third of the way into the novel and could tell that my enjoyment was going to endure through the duration of the reading. Tweet Cute was very cute with more complexity than I think the name led me to believe. Don't get me wrong--it's sweet and funny and adorable, just like Jack and Pepper, but it also delved into the pressures students feel from school and family and social media and even their friends. I enjoyed how the journeys of our main characters paralleled each other in many aspects and how she resolved the conflicts that arose because of one less than thoughtful tweet and the exchanges that followed. By the end, I was happy with where each of these characters ended up and found myself wishing I could peep in on them one more time, just to see how they were doing. 

This was definitely not an angsty teen drama; Tweet Cute was clever and layered and sweet and the perfect addition to my classroom library.


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.
