We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This by Rachel Lynn Solomon
My name is Elizabeth. I love reading, and my favorite book is My Sister’s Keeper. I am in the 8th grade and enjoy dance.
We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This is a story about Quinn Berkowitz and her journey through finding herself and also finding love. Quinn’s family owns Borrowed & Blue, a wedding planning business. Her parents expect Quinn to go to college in Seattle, learn all about business, and then work full time for B&B. Quinn doesn’t know how to tell her parents that she doesn’t want to study business, especially because she doesn’t know what she would like to study instead. All Quinn knows is that she is not interested in wedding planning for the rest of her life. Quinn also grows closer with Tarek Mansour, the son of the catering company B&B uses for most weddings. Quinn learns a lot about herself and love throughout this story.
I enjoyed We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This a lot, and I enjoyed that it was relatable. Quinn is a pretty awkward character, and the way she handles her experiences reminds me of most teens. I also enjoyed that there was a crossover between the story of Quinn and Tarek, and also two characters from another novel by Solomon. I think this crossover helped me enjoy this book more. I also enjoyed that Quinn was able to find herself, and even though her parents were expecting one thing out of her, she was able to find something she loved and spend time doing that. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet story about finding yourself.
