Goodreads Synopsis: Courtney “Coop” Cooper
Dumped. Again. And normally I wouldn’t mind. But right now, my best friend and source of solace, Jupiter Sanchez, is ignoring me to text some girl.

Rae Evelyn Chin
I assumed “new girl” would be synonymous with “pariah,” but Jupiter and Courtney make me feel like I’m right where I belong. I also want to kiss him. And her. Which is . . . perplexing.

Jupiter Charity-Sanchez
The only thing worse than losing the girl you love to a boy is losing her to your boy. That means losing him, too. I have to make a move. . . .

One story.
Three sides.
No easy answers.

Find on Goodreads and Amazon.

I was so excited to read this book, the synopsis makes it sound like it’s a polyam book as well as queer. Sadly that is not the case and this book was a massive disappointment. Not only was it polyam baiting, it was also biphobic and just plain annoying.

At first I really liked the story. Coop is a good narrator and a good friend. I liked him a lot. He’s in love with his best friend Jupiter even though she’s a lesbian, but he’s always very respectful of that and is just a good friend to her.

Sadly this book went downhill. It’s broken up into the POV’s of each of the three characters, which was not great in my opinion. I didn’t like either girl’s POV as much as I liked Coops. And like I said, the book was VERY biphobic and baited the idea that the three would end up together. That is not the case.

I am very upset that this book ended the way it did. I honestly didn’t even manage to read all of it but had to skim the last bits. In the end I gave it 2 stars on Goodreads and I say, skip this read. It’s not worth your time.
