Tweet Cute, two teens battling it out in 280 characters or less. A stolen grilled cheese recipe dictating the entire plot. Each time I read this book, I fall more in love with the characters and the format. 

The plot follows Pepper and Jack, who go to school together and also fight each other using corporate accounts on Twitter. When Pepper’s Big League Burger steals Jack’s family grilled cheese recipe, they begin their spat, all while bonding in real life, commiserating about their crazy lives together. 

Pepper is a girl from Nashville who is living in New York with her mom, who runs the massive fast food chain, Big League Burger. Her dad is back ‘home’ in Nashville, and her older sister at UPenn. Pepper is finally finding stable footing at her elite private school she moved to Freshman year, Stone Hall. Senior year for her is hectic and crazy, with the swim team, college, the intense curriculum, and now, trying to run a corporate Twitter account for Big League Burger.

Jack can’t escape the feeling that he isn’t enough. His identical twin, Ethan is the beloved “golden twin” according to Jack. Jack’s family runs a deli that features a famous Grilled Cheese sandwich, Grandma’s Special, but Big League Burger steals it, down to the ingredients.

One of the best parts of this book is the engaging format. I really like that we get to see both points of view between Jack and Pepper, and that helps with understanding their actions. Pepper and Jack are both very lovable and relatable characters, and they’re very cheery and light, and fun to read. The whole Twitter spat they have is filled with memes and comedy, keeping everything playful.  

I highly recommend this book to many readers. If you like romance and realistic fiction books, then I think this book is for you. It’s a young adult book for teens. The characters are hilarious and fun to read, constantly cracking jokes and playing around. The format is easy to follow and unique. And the plot is just so ridiculous and serious at once, revolving around a grilled cheese, but it’s so much more. I rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars, and I really hope that the author will write some more books, because this one was great.
