Saoirse has sworn off love. Kissing cute (preferably straight, thus unavailable) girls is fine because it can't lead to a whiplash-inducing, heart-wrenching breakup like she already went through. But when she meets Ruby, who suggests a summer romance full of magical moments and with a definite end date, that seems like another way to avoid certain heartbreakâhopefully. Smyth's love-flecked debut is a meet-cute drawn out in the style of Jenny Han's To All the Boys I Loved Before (2014), and the moments are just as sweet and cinematic as YA rom-com fans will expect. But beneath this frothy surface, Saoirse is grappling with her mother's early-onset dementia and what that diagnosis could mean for her future mental health, as well as her family as a whole, that makes the novel stand out. Being asked to plan ahead when the promise of any future seems so tenuous is a fascinating position in which to place a character, and Smyth captures the resultant osculating fear, anger, grief, and hope perfectly. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
