Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 March #2
    Halle is an online sensation. Using the pseudonym Kels, she has amassed a following with her Twitter charisma and popular One True Pastry blog, where she pairs cupcakes with book reviews. Nash is also a well-known presence online, thanks to his weekly web comic series—and rumor has it that Kels and Nash are an item. Ha! With her parents spending a year in Israel, Halle and her younger brother move in with their grandfather. Unexpectedly, Halle meets Nash IRL, and she is panicked to reveal that she (#reserved #shy) is actually Kels (#confident #outgoing). When Halle gets absorbed into Nash's circle of friends at school and temple, it becomes harder to confess who she is, especially once Halle and Nash become a couple. With humor and compassion, Kanter's debut is fun to read with its texts, DMs, posts, and angsty narrative. As online and IRL love and personalities clash, Halle must learn to be herself. Kudos to Kanter for featuring Jewish teens and telling a sweet story that also examines the blurring of online and real lives. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
