Summary (from NetGalley): 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.
Review: This book was so cute, light and fluffy. This book is written in alternating perspectives between Jack and Pepper; two seniors with an unknowing rivalry that have what seems like 3 different types of interactions/versions of their relationship.
In regards to the Twitter rivalry, this started out as fun and I enjoyed the puns but it got cumbersome and repetitive. I mean, I get that the title of the book is Tweet Cute but I didn’t expect it to take up so much of the book.
It has themes of:
- sibling rivalry
- following your passions/career paths after high school
- family drama
It’s interesting to read books nowadays about how teenagers go through high school and battle with their internal monologue of what to do with their life afterwards. I wish I was more into reading during the latter half of my high school years to get all these different perspectives.
Super cute, corny at times but overall enjoyable and much needed after a heavy read. It also made me really want a grilled cheese!
