My Thoughts 

When I read the synopsis for this, I was irresistibly reminded of Never Been Kissed - the 1999 Drew Barrymore rom-com (which I remember fondly, in spite of its obvious faults) and because of that, I wanted to read this. 

Despite being someone who loathed every day I spent at my high school and hasn’t been to a class reunion once since I graduated a few decades go, I really do enjoy a fun reunion story now and again (Simon Pegg's The World’s End!!!) so, that added to my interest in reading Ellie Is Cool Now.

And I’m so glad that I did, because this was such a fun, touching, and humorous read 😍.  I adored the writing and humor in this; it elevated an already entertaining story premise. 

Thank you to Forever (Grand Central Publishing) and NetGalley for the DRC!


Meet the girl who’s “Most Likely to Make Everything Worse.”

TV writer Ellie Jenkins worked her butt off to put her nerdy, outcast teen years behind her. So there’s a certain delicious irony in that she works for a hit show about popular high school kids when she was So. Not. Cool. And now she’s been offered the promotion of a lifetime—if she attends her reunion. But Ellie’s memory of High School Hell isn’t nearly as traumatic as the reality . . .   

No one at the reunion is what Ellie expected. Not her ex-best friend, who still has the ability to see right through Ellie. And not her secret crush, who has only gotten hotter, sexier, and way more complicated. The only way she’s going to survive this whole weird ordeal is by fixing her bad high school karma, kissing the boy who got away, and getting the hell out of Ohio for good. But Ellie’s discovering that in real life, she can’t just rewrite the script.
