#49 - The Upside of Unrequited
The Upside of Unrequited - Becky Albertalli

Another important book, with a strong and beautiful message. The storyline was really simple, no big drama (well, teenager drama) and not a lot of action, it was just a story about the life on an ordinary girl, who has a not so ordinary family. Molly has two moms, one twin sister and one baby brother, who people claimed is not really her brother because they don't share a mom, just a donor dad. Molly also thinks people would not say he is not her brother, if he was white like her. You see: many diversity in this book. And It was so great to read about this family, who is not conventional, but is so great. This is not a conventional family because it does not enter the mold of what most people think a family represents. But for me, it is the most typical family there is because it is full of love, and it's what a family should be. 

Molly is also your typical teenage girl: she does not seem to lover her body really much, she thinks she is weird because she has not kissed a boy yet and she has issues with her sister. She is struggling to find herself and she is asserting herself more and more every day. She is such a lovable character! 

This was a cute book with a strong message. For me, the most important thing in this book was that love is what matters the most. I definitely recommend it!

Putting Childish Things Aside
Cole's Surrender - Marie Rochelle

I was in a mood to read this since I was looking for a good interracial romance. I have enjoyed this series, although it's been years since I read Boss Man. It's not perfect. The writing needs some extra tweaking. It's serviceable and a little forced at times. But it's also very charming and Cole and Lauren are a good couple. Lauren is a sweet girl. I loved her and I wanted the best for her. It's hard when people are used to seeing you a certain way and they can't get outside of that when you grow up.

Cole's a bit of an idiot and he knows he. He knows he threw away a good thing. Now he wants to convince Lauren they belong together. Lauren should have moved on, but she hasn't. She still loves Cole just as much as she always did. But she's not going to put herself in the same emotional danger zone with him. It's going to take some serious convincing on his part, if he can get his head straight and acknowledge what he really wants.

I loved seeing the couples from the first books. Fancy and Headley are friends with Lauren, but also Fancy is Cole's best friend. She is the voice of reason and gives Cole some truths he needs to hear, although he's reluctant to listen. Max and Troy are settled down and very happily married. They want to help their friend be happy too. Cole feels left out because they have families and he doesn't. Although he always thought that wasn't what he wanted anyway. He's come to realize that they have real lives and not just playboy lives. That gets old after a while. As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:11, "When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me." That's what Cole has to do.

It's true that this wasn't as good as the first two books, but it's very enjoyable. I liked seeing Lauren get the man she loved, and for Cole to realize what he wanted was something he had almost thrown away.
