Not to be #dramatique but I whole-heartedly believe this is the best book I’ve ever read in my entire life. I loved it so much. I can’t remember what about it initially piqued my interest but the blurb on the back sold me when I first looked into it. A young half-Mexican son of the first female president of the United States falls in love with the Prince of Wales in a enemies-to-friends-to-lovers fashion straight out of a fanfiction. I was like… damn, Casey McQuiston has my number? And it delivered. It is beyond good, the characters are good, and oh my God, that plot.
This book made me laugh out loud more times than I can count and even made me cry more than once. One of those times was me bawling in a Sam’s Club parking lot while waiting for my girlfriend to return with toilet paper. People saw.
I’m aiming to keep this spoiler free and short but for the sake of total transparency, if you do want to read this book you have to be prepared for some heavily implied but not totally explicit R rated scenes.
I am looking forward to Casey’s next book - which I hear is about lesbians - and to following the rest of her career because her relatable writing style and well put together story have sold me for life. What an amazing debut novel!
