"Viola Reyes is annoyed. Her painstakingly crafted tabletop game campaign was shot down, her best friend is suggesting she try being more 'likable,' and her school's star running back Jack Orsino is the most lackadaisical Student Body President she's ever seen, which makes her job as VP that much harder. Vi's favorite escape from the world is the MMORPG Twelfth Knight, but online spaces aren't exactly kind to girls like her--girls who are extremely competent and have the swagger to prove it. So Vi creates a masculine alter ego, choosing to play as a knight named Cesario to create a safe haven for herself. But when a football injury leads Jack Orsino to the world of Twelfth Knight, Vi is alarmed to discover their online alter egos--Cesario and Duke Orsino--are surprisingly well-matched"--… (mere)

While Shakespeare's play serves more as a reference point than plot framework, this YA enemies-to-lovers romance is completely delightful on its own merits. ( )

All Vi Reyes wants is to be respected, and in the game Twelfth Knight, where her avatar is Cesario, she is. But in her offline life - her ConQuest game with her best friend Antonia and a bunch of dudes, at school where she's the student body VP but does everyone else's work - she's frustrated and angry.

Jack Orsino is a football legend, a running back who can't wait to clinch his senior season and then swan off to Illyria - but an injury in the first game of the season sets him on an unexpected path. He starts playing Twelfth Knight as DukeOrsino, and meets Cesario there - but he doesn't know it's Vi.

*Spoilers*

In exchange for Jack "doing his job" as president, Vi agrees to find out from his girlfriend, Olivia, why she has been distant lately, and eventually, Olivia reveals she fell for a girl last summer, and might have feelings for Vi as well. Vi doesn't return the feelings, but the two remain friends.

As Vi and Jack begin falling for each other, Vi's twin brother Bash (Sebastian), who's into band and theater, urges her to tell Jack the truth, but Vi delays, even trying to get Bash to play Cesario in a Twelfth Knight event at school. Eventually, Vi comes clean, and Jack forgives her.

A really fun twist on Shakespeare's Twelfth Knight, with a Black Orsino, Latine-cued Viola and Sebastian, and Muslim Olivia. It goes deep into the world of gaming and also football - a unique combination!

Quotes

...I don't actually need to be liked. What I want is to be respected... (Viola, 100)

"There's a version of your life where you do other things. Infinite versions. And when you make a choice, you cast off one possible outcome, but then, I don't know - ten more pop up in its place. And you just keep going like that, choosing a path and watching new paths branch off in front of you. Even if the old ones disappear behind you, it doesn't have to be sad." (Vi to Jack, 162)

...if I'm the kind of person who is never allowed to get angry, then Vi is never allowed to be sad. (Jack, 201)

Sometimes it feels like there's a cliff-edge, the right moment for the truth, and you either pull yourself back from it or you sail headfirst into a crevasse. (Vi, 209)

She's this fingerprint on who I am and what I do and where I go... (Vi, re: Antonia, 267)

I got close to Vi without knowing she had a window into me that I've never had with her. (Jack, 277)

From the Acknowledgments: "Writing this book was like passing a kidney stone." ( )

Viola's maintenance setting is annoyance. She's ultra-organized and anyone not like that is fodder for contempt and harsh words. She knows how unlikable she is, but when her suggested campaign for her tabletop gaming group is met with a less than enthusiastic response from the other players, including her only real friend, she withdraws into an online game where she plays as a male because of the prejudice against female gamers.
In her real life, she is becoming increasingly frustrated by the lackadaisical attitude of the student body president who's also the top player on the football team. When he's injured and football's off the table for a long time...maybe for good, he starts playing the same game. Neither is initially aware that they've teamed up to complete a series of challenging online quests, but the more they play, the more of that growing camaraderie seeps into their prickly real life relationship. The romance that ensues is uneven and messy, but great fun to follow. ( )
