    I'm so grateful that I got the chance to read an early copy!!

    This is an adorable novelette about two Jewish girls bonding over fanfiction and fanart *swoons*. It's full of everything I love to read in F/F stories. I'm sure people are going to adore this one. Shira is a wonderful and clever writer and everything she writes includes female characters that are so relatable and funny. I could read about Clara and Danielle for a long time and I miss them already.

    I heart this adorable f/f romance so much. It's sweet like my favorite rugelach, and the pace felt exactly right to me. I love how deeply Jewish it is, and all the details about art and yarn, and the kitty. The zaftig MC Danielle is exactly who I would fall for, too. And I really liked the way the characters are connected to community, liked the way they joke with each other, share a fandom. it just feels so...cozy. Exactly the comfort read I needed today. The first kiss moment was super swoony

The first kiss moment was super swoony for me as a fat activist. Loved it. It feels whole as it is, but I would totally read a longer book about these two.

    This was such an adorable novella! A perfectly safe, comforting feel-good f/f piece featuring two Jewish women. There is so much love for knitting, fandom, colors, cats with attitudes, and the occasional pun. It's nerdy, it's sweet, it's funny. I think I grinned almost the whole time watching Clara and Danielle bond with each other.

    Plus - have you seen the title? Have you seen the cover? Perfect!

    "If I'm stuck on my planet," Danielle pointed out, "I'm gonna plant flowers there."

    So good.

    So adorable. So honest and at times raw. So healing.

    This is a short-but-Very-sweet novelette about precious, creative, clever girls growing closer and bonding over art, yarn nerdery, and healing past traumas. So, like, everything I love in a book, even if I don't know the first thing about yarn or yarn accessories - but the writer clearly does/has done the research. And the romance is so good that eve

And the romance is so good that even the yarn-uninitiated like me can get a lot of enjoyment out of it.

    The narration is light and quick, and the interactions are natural and endearing, with the whole thing paced so well that you could probably get through this in an hour or so even if it were longer. (I did in one sitting, wasn't able to stop.) Also, there is a tuxedo cat named after the Phantom of the Opera, so 5 stars are basically assured here. And the title is a pun. I had no chance.

    Highly recommended. So very much. If you want a little bit of warmth, catharsis, and a lot of warm fuzzies, please pick this up. It feels like a sweater right out of the dryer, knit with a lot of love.

    This book was so sweet.

    FINALLY GUYS. I FINALLY FOUND A BOOK WITH A CHARACTER I CAN IDENTIFY WITH.

    This book is about two Jewish girls falling for each other, one of them identifies as a lesbian, and the other as bisexual and .... You have know idea how hard it is to find a bi Jewish girl in books .... It's the first time for me, and it makes my bi Jewish heart so damn happy.

    It's so satisfying to read a book about Jewish people, so so so satisfying. Like at some point Danielle says she can't live

    It's so satisfying to read a book about Jewish people, so so so satisfying. Like at some point Danielle says she can't live without pickles and that's a Jewish thing : we're obsessed with pickles. Or when Clara says nobody actually likes matzo and when I'm like 'Beg to differ, I do.' It's my culture, and some people may think it's just little things, but I needed those little things.

    This novella is not a sparks fly romance and I would say falls into the cute category.

    In general, I felt some distance from the story and it ended up being an okay read for me.

    The characters are likable enough but the plot meanders some, drawing our attention to things that probably aren't necessary (along the lines of yarn dying, clean up, and meeting with some friends). I was left waiting for the meat of the story to kick in (i.e. more interactions between Danielle and Clara)...which it does,

I was left waiting for the meat of the story to kick in (i.e. more interactions between Danielle and Clara)...which it does, it just takes awhile and ends up being on the shorter side.

    That said, a cuteness, sweet romance factor is there in a very G-Rated sort of way, minus Danielle's penchant for swearing like a sailor. There's a nod to fan fiction and fan art that I enjoyed. And, I'm not crafty or Jewish so I was on the outside looking in as the author introduced me to knitting, yarn dying, and kosher foods.

    I liked that the elements in the story were unique and that Danielle is a full-figured protagonist...I just wish it was told in a tighter more succinct way with more interactions between our two lead characters...that, or the story could've been longer, fleshing out the romance and characters more.
