“We aren’t alone, I say quietly, liking how the words fit around my lips. If this is the impossible universe, then I hope tonight was the good sort of impossible. I want to believe.”

As we all know, retellings usually disappoint me. They do the original no justice and I’m left wanting to kick the book into outer space, but this book right here changes everything. It took the original story a step further and added Con flare to the picture. It has all our nerd-girl hearts on overdrive.

I wasn’t expecting to feel a deep level relatability with this one, maybe a quick fangirl freakout but nothing to this magnitude. I might have felt goosebumps rise up my arms and a few tears fall on my precious arc copy.

From page one, you instantly connect with Elle and feel what she feels. The torment from her stepsisters and stepmom, the heartache from losing her parents at a young age, and the fandom she lives and breathes on.

The twist text communication between Elle and Darien was absolute genius on her part and I tip my hat to you. Everything seemed to fit into place perfectly and I wouldn’t change a thing.

If you want an emotional roller coaster of feels, secret texting, sabotage, and epic cons, then this story is for you. Hell, who am I kidding? Everyone should read this. This is not your typical retelling!

“I might not be there and you might not be here, but I’m glad to share the same sky with you. Maybe we should start looking up together.”
