Social distancing came easily to Reagan. Maybe a little too easily. She’s always liked people better from afar. But Reagan doesn’t want her grandpa to be alone for Christmas this year—he’s already spent too much time on his own in 2020. So she heads back to her hometown with a dish of holiday Jell-O salad, hoping they can have a little normalcy. Hoping it will be safe…

She isn’t expecting to run into the boy next door. Mason is all grown up now. He’s considerate. He’s funny. He doesn’t mind how prickly Reagan is—he maybe even likes it. And it makes Reagan feel like her defenses are falling. She needs her defenses, doesn’t she? In a time when six feet is close enough, how long can they keep their distance?



Rainbow Rowell is the award-winning #1 New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, Landline, and the Simon Snow trilogy. She lives in Omaha, Nebraska, and loves every kind of Jell-O salad.


My review for Eleanor & Park
My review for The Prince and the Troll


REVIEW:
I don't know what I was expecting when I saw a Jell-O mold on the cover and read the title, but it wasn't what I got. Probably a good thing though. 
This is a COVID romance of sorts. We are living in this unusual new normal time and the story was appropriate for the events with wit added to it. I actually laughed out loud three or four times. There were moments that were cute, and moments that stuck home. 
I really appreciate the authors' writing. She just has a way of telling a story that makes a reader want to hear it. This little story was no exception! I also loved how she incorporated her own surroundings in the story. I haven't read a story with a Nebraska backdrop before. It was cool for me. I like to armchair travel.
Anyway if you haven't read anything by this author, which I highly doubt, start with this little ditty. You will enjoy it too!


4/5

  1. I've had a few of her books on my list for a few years but haven't read them yet. Your review convinced me to add this too.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
