How I Found It.’ Once Upon A Book Club
In a letter to the reader, I know that this is a love story between two Jewish teens who are on the precipice of deciding on their future endeavors. Otherwise. I know very little about what is in store for us, so without further Ado, I will see you all with the first gift!
“I’m poking a simple gold stud through one earlobe when the envelope catches my eye.”Today Tonight Tomorrow, page 7
Honestly, I have the exact same earrings in silver on at the time of writing this, so I will definitely be incorporating these into my fashion!
I’m not going to put a quote because that is a lot to write, but you can see it all on the gift. Fun fact: my 7th grade teacher made us write notes to our future selves and in that letter I 1) said I should go to Princeton because, as A Cinderella Story taught me, that’s where princesses go (barf), but 2) was convinced that my brother shouldn’t marry my sister-in-law (which thankfully was ignored, and now I am a proud aunt). All-in-all, an interesting memory lane to walk down.
“He glances back at me, and with a sweet smile, I dive forward to yank off his armband.”Today Tonight Tomorrow, page 94
Okay, let’s catch up for a minute. Rowan had a life plan for when shegraduates high school. But when nothing goes to plan, especially when her archenemy, Neil McNair wins valedictorian. with the final senior scavenger hunt looming. Rowan is determined to win her last hurrah.
Why am I obsessed with bandanas? The world may never know. But, I am a happy Elizabeth!
“I grab his arm to look at his watch.”Today Tonight Tomorrow, page 284
I got a WATCH?!?! It is a very beautiful, but simple watch. However, it is hard to adjust, so while I can put it on, it does pinch a little bit.
As for the story. Rowan learns that a group of the seniors are trying to knock her and Neil out of the scavenger hunt, she teams up with him to win. But as Rowan said, opposites are more similar than they think, and quickly they get all caught up in their feelings.
“With that, he reveals the gift: a tub of Philadelphia with a red ribbon around it….”Today Tonight Tomorrow, page 351
I saw this gift very briefly when I was scrolling through Instagram and was sure it was a candle. Let me just say, very happy to be wrong on this one. Also what does it say about me when I immediately thought about putting my wine in it? Pandemic hits hard.
I loved this. To have an opportunity to write about something that all of us have felt (feeling like you didn’t do everything you wanted to) and add in a personal twist (stereotypes and general feeling of being the other) and add in a romance is essentially *chef’s kiss*. All in all, I absolutely enjoyed myself. I am going to rate this a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
