My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I loved the heck out of Felix Ever After and had high hopes that Meet Cute Diary would enrapture me like Felix did. I was so wrong.
Noah is the most condescending and entitled character I have ever read. He is truly unlikeable, and I tried REALLY hard to find some redeeming quality. He is snobby and super-judgmental, and maybe that’s what being 16 years old is all about? However, I waited and waited for some growth or self-realization when it came to his brattiness, but it never came. There usually is some awareness and adjustment in character development as a story progresses that make the terrible parts of the character bearable. Not in Meet Cute Diary.
Devin would have made a better MC. Noah knows who he is and is confident in his identify. Devin goes through enough self-discovery that eir book; would have been a better story. E’s much more likeable; eir story would have evoked a heck of a lot more empathy from me.
I do have to mention that I was pleased by the quick ace rep.
