"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"--… (mere)

Pepper is a driven private school student who moonlights as her mother's social media expert for their family's "Big League Burger" food chain. Jack is her sometimes clownish classmate who works at his family's local deli. When Big League starts offering a new grilled cheese and Jack recognizes it as one of his family's specialties, an all-out Twitter war begins with the two teens behind the keyboard. However, neither teen realizes that they are also secretly texting each other via an anonymous app for students at their school ... and they are revealing more of their true selves here than with anyone else.

So one of the first things I noticed about this book is that it feels so heavily based on the main premise of the play "The Shop Around the Corner" (later made into a film of the same title and then remade into the musical "In the Good Old Summertime" and finally again as the movie "You've Got Mail"). I think it's great to re-visit the story once again with new technology, but I am NOT a fan of how that source material is never really acknowledged. Granted, the argument could be that many rom-coms have a similar storyline, but this one felt too close not to be given a mention.

That being said, this book is actually much more than a romance. The two teens are dealing with family issues, thoughts about colleges and careers, and school friendships/relationships. In fact, it often felt like these plotlines and themes were more of a focus than the romantic tension. No doubt teens will find many of these aspects relatable; especially the struggles the characters have with balancing academic achievement with a social life; looking at the huge stretching yawn of life before them and trying to decide what to do with themselves; and trying to find where they fit in.

The characters were generally believable, interesting, and likeable. However, I really did not care for Pepper's mother and felt that the revelation explaining her behavior seemed a little too late to make up for how much I had already disliked her. She seemed to have no concern for her daughter's well-being beyond how it could help out her business model, instead of focusing on hiring competent staff to do the job. Of course, the relationship between Pepper and her mother (as well as other family members) was, as mentioned, a big part of the story so there's a logic to this; I just didn't think it was handled as deftly as it could have been.

In terms of diversity, there are a few elements here. Pepper is the child of divorced parents; her closest 'frenemy' at school is Asian American; Jack's twin brother is gay; and Jack's family struggles with money, especially compared to their wealthier classmates. It is not perfect, but at least attempts were made.

The audiobook was read by two narrators, one for each of the protagonists. I really enjoyed hearing from both Pepper's and Jack's perspectives, and I also think it highlights important facts for teens without being didactic -- there is often more to the story; things posted on social media still need to be taken with a grain of salt, as context matters but isn't seen in soundbites or 140 characters; and even images and videos can be manipulated easily.

As a side note, the many descriptions of food, whether its breakfast sandwiches at the family deli or Pepper's baking creations, will likely make your mouth water. I know I kept craving grilled cheese while reading this book!

Overall, this book was just the right amount of lightness and realness to be a compelling read that I didn't want to put down until I knew how it would all turn out. ( )

I truly adored this book. So many YA romance books build the tension to lead to the assumption that a kiss will solve all problems, but this book did not take the easy way out of the crazy chaos it created. I loved the mistaken identities of a school app combined with the catty twitter battle on top of the casual not-flirting at the swimming pool. It came together so well and I was grinning through my favorite parts (which was mostly the entire book). I want to read this again in a few months so I can catch the references I missed, which I'm sure were plentiful. ( )

So this is Emma Lord's first book and I'm very annoyed that her second book doesn't come out until January. ( )

Normally, I don't like YA romance novels, but this one was an exception. The book consists of many conflicts, each of which were addressed and had a closure (and a proper one at that!). The characters are highly intertwined in the digital world, and both their digital presence and IRL presence are wonderfully fleshed out.

Also, now I have a craving for decadent food. ( )

Two teenagers, two business Twitter accounts and one very public argument about grilled cheese.

Pepper and Jack see each other in class and cross paths training at the pool, but they don’t know about the other’s family -- Pepper’s owns a burger franchise, while Jack’s runs a New York deli. When Pepper and Jack discover just who they have been at war with, they decide upon rules of engagement: “No taking it personally. And no holding back.” Meanwhile, like something out of You’ve Got Mail, Jack and Pepper are still unaware that they have been regularly, pseudonymously, chatting on a school-based chat app.

This was a lot of fun -- super cute and full of Pepper’s passion for baking, Jack’s passion for the deli, complicated-but-ultimately-supportive family relationships, and references to internet culture.

I like how the story explores the strengths, the pressures and the problems of social media, as well as of teenagers having responsibility to represent a business and of having a family business. Pepper and Jack have different perspectives to their parents regarding social media: Jack’s dad is uncomfortable with online attention; Pepper’s mother recognises the potential of Twitter but doesn’t realise how much time and effort she is asking Pepper to give, nor how such tweets could damage their brand.

In another case of different perspectives, their school principal is concerned about bullying on a chat app, while the students see the app resulting in support groups and positive new connections. The reality isn’t as black-and-white as either side sees it.

There’s a lot packed into this novel (which might explain why I’ve spent so long trying to string sentences together and and yet still have not finished writing this review!). There’s an argument to be made that maybe one would be able to better taste each of the ingredients if this sandwich hadn’t been stuffed so full. But I’m not going to make that argument -- I was entertained.

[...] after we expanded nationwide, the marketing team decided that Big League Burger’s Twitter presence was going to go the way of KFC or Wendy’s -- sarcastic, irreverent, fresh. All the things that Taffy, bless her overworked, Powerpuff Girl heart, has no experience with.
Enter me. Apparently in the vast arsenal of useless talents that aren’t going to help me get into college, I am really good at being snarky on Twitter.
