Warning: this book is addictive, invigorating and a genuinely heartfelt and beautiful expression of love between two humans who couldn't come from different worlds. All you need to know is to stop scrolling, stop window shopping and buy this asap! In case you need a bit of a nudge:

One fandom convention, complete with costumes, dyed hair, tattoo's and loud crazy parties between events. One teen beauty pageant, evening gowns, high heels, staged choreography and one college scholarship on the line. These events aren't even on the same planet as far as both groups are concerned so what happens when they collide and frenzied anxious pageant girls meet the fandom who couldn't care less about the noise and interruptions the collision has on the pageant girls

I read this all in one night. Then read it again before writing my review. I cannot express how incredible this story is, nerd love, desire, passion, talent, and an unlikely mutual attraction make this absolutely impossible to put down.

The One True Me and You is an absolutely amazing story. We get to follow along as Tegan a devoted pageant competitor who happens to be gay, a fact she feels she has to keep a secret from the masses until the scholarship is awarded in fear of losing everything she's worked for. Enter Kay a spunky fanfic author attending the convention with a few friends Kay is unsure of where she falls on the gender and sexuality spectrum but is determined to find out, and this convention is the perfect time to try asking people to use they/them while and exploring the possibility of being with a girl.

The story is told in alternating points of view from Kay and Tegan respectively. We have the immense delight of experiencing both sides of exploring your identity and a new relationship, the eagerness, the doubts, the chemistry. This is the first book I've come across that embodied the insecurities and confusion of exploring yourself and another person, as well as the first novel I've read that uses they/them and Remi K. England did a beautiful job of crafting the prose so it seems like the most natural, beautiful thing in the world, which is exactly the message that needs to be heard loud and clear by every human being. '

Im not sure its possible to explain the magic of this book, how much I needed it, and why it's perfect, I will be telling every person who will listen about this book and I cannot wait for my own physical copy to sit on my shelf so I can pull it down often to reread over and over because this is exactly what every reader is going to want to do with this one.

Five our of Five stars!

This is a girl meets enby YA story that takes place at a hotel hosting both a teen beauty pageant and a Sherlockian-ish con. To me, it was a little like reading fan fic without knowing the jargon or really, anything about the canon the fic’s based on but I enjoyed the book’s energy and message all the same. I liked that it sidestepped the predictable Beauty and the Geek trope and focused as much on the support each girl got from their friends as on the new relationship itself. Also, between the pageant competitions and cosplay events I got so swept up in all the activity I found it hard not to keep turning the pages to see what was going to happen next.
My thanks to Goodreads Giveaways and the publisher for an arc to review.
