Book Review: Someone Just Like You by Meredith Schorr

I thoroughly enjoyed Meredith Schorr’s new book, Someone Just Like You. It’s a nemesis to lovers story where childhood rivals Molly and Jude’s families are organizing a joint anniversary party for both sets of parents, who have been neighbours and best friends for all of their married lives. The older siblings have only tasked Molly and Jude with one mission: to secure a venue for the party. Surely they can get along long enough to do that, right? Wrong! In no time flat, both are back to their teenage ways of

pranking each other in a hilarious battle of one uppery. My favorite element of the book though, is that Molly and Jude are unknowingly dating each other’s doppelgängers, and as their siblings not so subtly point out, they've been doing so for years. There is so much to smile about while reading this book—Beatles puns, Hart of Dixie references, and of course, a happily ever after that really feels earned, both in the romance aspect and in each of the main characters personal lives. Pick this one up if you love childhood friends-to-enemies-to-lovers, forced collaboration, and fun side characters. Thanks to NetGalley and Forever for the early copy!
