Cassandra in Reverse: A Reese's Book Club Pick
About this deal
Holly Smale is an author that I was already familiar with having tried some of her young adult contemporary romance novels. I found her writing a ton of fun and seeing a this was an adult romcom that also mixed in another genre when I love books that mix genres I couldn’t help but get excited. The incredibly great part to this new series for me was finding that an autistic lead was at the front of this story and I couldn’t help but be enamored with it. This one turned into just what I hoped, a ton of laughs along with a lot of character growth as she finds herself and navigates the world so I couldn’t help but to enjoy it as I read along. I’ve spoken to you about this on multiple occasions— Cassandra, look at me when I’m talking to you.

If only I could time travel and experience this story for the first time again!” —Beth Reekles, USA Today bestselling author of The Kissing Booth All magic comes with a price, though, and for years the sisters have been separated. Esther has fled to a remote base in Antarctica to escape the fate that killed her own mother, and Joanna’s isolated herself in their family home in Vermont, devoting her life to the study of these cherished volumes. But after their father dies suddenly while reading a book Joanna has never seen before, the sisters must reunite to preserve their family legacy. In the process, they’ll uncover a world of magic far bigger and more dangerous than they ever imagined, and all the secrets their parents kept hidden; secrets that span centuries, continents, and even other libraries . . .There was just too much going on, and I don't think these new plot elements/themes complimented each other.
There’s only one problem: Harriet is the definition of awkward. Can she transform from geek to chic? I love that Cassie doesn't immediately use this power for any of the stereotypical time travel things like getting rich or averting catastrophes. No, she uses it in hilariously mundane ways: I fall asleep on the tube and end up in Walthamstow. Undo .

A Note From the Publisher
Then, she spends the majority of the book trying to re-establish her relationship with her boyfriend. That got boring fast.
