I Think I Love You

Emma believes in big romantic love, Sophia believes that love is fake and only ends in heartbreak. They hate each other.

This story is about Sophia coming home from a year abroad and entering into a friend group that has lived on without her. To make it worse, her relationship with Emma is just as strained and bitter as ever. Emma who finds out about a film competition through her school that could help with her film career, rallies her friends to join her. Until Sophia comes in and ruins it all. With a healthy dose of matchmaking and scheming, I Think I Love you contains wonderful amounts of romcom tropes and while the relationships and action might be predictable, it doesn’t change how cute and heartwarming it is.

I loved that the friends’ lives were not dropped off or forgotten, I love that the parents had a prominent role, and I love that it was messy and cute just like love is. I think there is a good use of setting examples of good and bad behavior and how to confront people, and I think this book addresses a lot of things that young readers are experiencing. But I think the most special thing about this book is that it’s for the queer kids who just want to see themselves reflected in the media they consume. A book about a proud bisexual girl is unbelievably amazing and it deserves to be read by all of the out, in, and questioning people.
