I absolutely loved the book and the greatest cherry on top was being able to hear it read by Allison and Gaby. I either saw an interview or podcast where they talked about how time consuming recording the audio for the book was, but my goodness was it worth it! I already appreciated the complexity of the characters as I read it on my own the first time but being able to hear them, as the authors, give voice to the characters showed just how clever, sarcastic, and funny they (Allison/Ava, Gabby/Gen) truly are. It touches on subjects like mental illness and sexuality in a way that I haven't seen other books do before so just listen to this book y'all.

I was nervous that because it is told as a series of texts that the audio version wouldn't translate as well, but looking at reviews I gave it a shot and I'm glad I did. I think hearing it gave a lot of feeling and nuance I wonder if I would have missed or interpreted differently without their inflection. There was so so much I loved about this book, the way many kinds of love/relationships were shown, the descriptions of each girl exploring what they want and need from the people in their lives as they grow up, the deep beautiful friendship that they both value, the fact they both make such terrible mistakes that of course an 18 year old would make, and yet it is so throughly sweet and funny through the whole thing. Both narrators have their own voice, so I never had to wonder even for a moment who was talking.
