Simi comes from a long line of matchmakers in India. As her sophomore year begins, she and her best friend Noah, who is gay, are looking for a way to make their mark at their New Jersey high school. They decide to try out the matchmaking app created by her older brother and use their school's student body as the test group. Initially, all goes well. The app becomes very popular and, on a personal level, Simi soon has two possible love interests. But when a spiteful classmate discovers that her former boyfriend has found someone new, she targets Simi and Noah for vengeance, hurting them both in different ways before getting her comeuppance. While it's sometimes easy to predict what will happen to the main character next, this eventful story rolls along at a good pace. Bajpai, who grew up in India and lives in the U.S., creates a strong, sympathetic portrayal of Simi and her close-knit Indian American family. Many readers will enjoy this engaging first-person narrative, which ends with a promising romance. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
