We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This by Rachel Lynn Solomon
Publisher: Simon & Schuster • Publication Date: June 8, 2021
We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This was my second Rachel Lynn Solomon book, and I now need to read all of her books because I just adore them! This is my first YA book by Solomon, a genre I don’t read regularly, but I never felt like I was reading a YA book with how great the storytelling was.
I loved Quinn the main character, she was so spunky and true to herself and not only was I rooting for her throughout the book, I want to be friends with her as well! This book tackles mental health and I thought it was handled very well and I like the open and honest conversations Quinn and Tarek were able to have about the struggles in their lives.
The diversity in this book was amazing. As a Jewish reviewer, it is always nice to see my religion reflected in a book, but like in Solomon’s other works we also meet Egyptian Muslim characters and Queer characters. I love that Solomon really builds this into the characters identities and it is more than just a passing mention.
Thank you to Rachel Lynn Solomon, NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for an advance digital copy in exchange for an honest review.
