“A little sweet, a little sharp.” —Booklist, starred review High school nemeses fall in love in Kelly Quindlen's She Drives Me Crazy, a queer YA rom com perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli and Casey McQuiston.After an embarrassing loss to her ex-girlfriend in their first basketball game of the season, seventeen-year-old Scottie Zajac gets into a fender bender with the worst possible person: her nemesis, Irene Abraham, head cheerleader for the Fighting Reindeer.Irene is as mean as she is beautiful, so Scottie makes a point to keep her distance. When the accident sends Irene’s car to the shop for weeks’ worth of repairs and the girls are forced to carpool, their rocky start only gets bumpier. But when an opportunity arises for Scottie to get back at her toxic ex—and climb her school’s social ladder—she bribes Irene into an elaborate fake- dating scheme that threatens to reveal some very real feelings. From author Kelly Quindlen comes a new laugh-out-loud romp through the ups and downs of teen romance, perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli.

"i had many mixed feelings about this one. it was highly predictable & i did not like scottie whatsoever. irene was lovely though. also i guess it was supposed to be funny but it was very unfunny & scottie’s attempts annoyed me :( i also feel like the towing thing was way too coincidental, & tally was super toxic to the point that i did not understand scottie’s hurt over her. it was just ok. ⭐️1/5⭐️ from me, i’m not sure if this is worth a read. if irene narrating i would’ve liked it a lot better. finished 1/1/22"
