Twins hit the milestones of childhood together...losing teeth, double digits... Molly thought relationships would be the same, but at 17, her sister has had summer flings and makeouts, and Molly has had 24 unrequited crushes (25 counting Lin-Manuel Maranda, but he's special).
Molly feels like she's falling behind, especially when Cassie announces she has a girlfriend and their moms' announce they're finally having the wedding the law never allowed. Molly determines to stop playing safe with her heart and make a move... but on who?

From the award-winning author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda comes a funny, authentic novel about sisterhood, love, and identity.
Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can't stomach the idea of rejection. So she's careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.
Then a cute new girl enters Cassie's orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly's cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly's totally not dying of loneliness--except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie's new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she'll get her first kiss and she'll get her twin back.
There's only one problem: Molly's coworker, Reid. He's a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there's absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.
