The author of A Little Something Different brings you the most adorkable romance ever.
Jane, a superstitious fangirl, takes an anonymous babysitting job to avoid an unpaid internship with her college-obsessed mom. The only problem? She’s babysitting the siblings of her childhood friend and new crush, Teo.
Teo doesn’t dislike Jane, but his best friend Ravi hates her, and is determined to keep them apart. So Teo’s pretty sure his plans for a peaceful summer are shot. His only hope is that his intermittent search for his birth father will finally pan out and he’ll find a new, less awkward home. Meanwhile, at Jane’s house, her sister Margo wants to come out as bisexual, but she’s terrified of how her parents will react.
In a summer filled with secrets and questions, even Jane’s Magic 8 ball can’t give them clear answers, but Signs Point to Yes.
Signs Point to Yes is an adorable, or adorkable as the summary calls it, young adult contemporary romance. If it is starting to get cooler where you are, Signs Point to Yes is the perfect book to have you feeling like you are back in summer. Or, if you are like me, it is a great book for any time of the year.
Jane is a high school girl just trying to figure out what she wants to do next with her life. Instead of going to work at a college, like her mom wants, Jane signs up to be a nanny for a neighbor and their little girls. I loved that Jane didn’t know what would come after high school for her. I think a lot of times in books we see characters that knew exactly what they wanted out of life and were laser focused on it. Which is great! I was like that. My mom said I knew I wanted to be a lawyer in middle school, but the vast majority of 16 years olds do not know that. Jane is a great role model for them.
Teo happens to be the older brother of the girls that Jane is babysitting. Jane and Teo used to be good friends, but Teo’s best friend Ravi hates Jane. In fact, he calls her his mortal enemy. I thought this strange triangle dynamic was hilarious. (and no Ravi didn’t have a crush on Jane.)
Signs Point to Yes was such a fun read. Teo and Jane were great characters and super cute together. Sandy Hall did an excellent job writing realistic teenagers, with realistic teenage problems. And it was a fresh and fun romance to boot. I highly recommend it fans of young adult contemporary.Ready for the 'most adorkable romance ever'? @BookBriefs reviews Signs Point to Yes by @iamsandyhall @SwoonReads Click To Tweet
