PositivePureWowSeeing two LGBTQ leads not struggling with their identities—one so fully supported by her family that at Hanukkah dinner her parents practically beg to be introduced to her girlfriend—felt great and refreshing. (Still, I\'d wished we had gotten to see more of their queer identities outside the relationship. There are no other queer celebrities or friends in the book, for example.) ... We need more lighthearted, wholesome queer stories, and Something To Talk About certainly helps fill the gap. No two queer love stories mirror each other, but Emma and Jo’s is a sweet one worth talking about.

PositivePure WowThe writing feels urgent and realistic, like dipping into an acquaintance’s group text with their closest friends where they hold nothing back ... While it’s tough to sympathize with Roxy, this makes her increasingly desperate and dramatic letters even more intriguing ... Why is she so annoying and why can’t I stop reading? ... A highly memorable cast of characters...and fast-paced, laugh-out-loud scenes...make The Roxy Letters a worthwhile escapist read.
