“The Love Hypothesis” by Ali Hazelwood. Reviewed by Solano County Teen, Jan Howa

Solano County Library Teen, Jan, reviews "The Love Hypothesis"!

Book: The Love Hypothesis

Author: Ali Hazelwood

Reviewer: Jan Howa, 10th Grade

A twist on the fake-dating trope featuring two intelligent, attractive scientists. Olive, determined to ease her friend’s guilt of falling in love with her “ex-crush,” kisses a stranger (under dire circumstances of course). From there stems a series of events, situations, and occurrences, heart-felt and filled with the dreamy touches of love and the escalating motion of discovering one’s feelings. Through struggles with self-love and worth, dependence on academic validation, and other very-much real problems we face today, Hazelwood spins a bubbly romance together,  one where you’re unable to put it down. The Love Hypothesis is full of spunky and ever-entertaining dialogue and prose along with characters who are full of life.

This was a fun and great read! I definitely believe adults and teens would be interested and enjoy The Love Hypothesis as well. At times, especially when we are burned out, we need a break and take time for ourselves: this book is exactly that. I definitely enjoyed my time reading this book and would definitely recommend it!
