Review: Textrovert by Lindsey Summers
Summary from Goodreads.com
Publication Date May 2, 2017
It’s bad enough when high-school senior Keeley grabs the wrong phone while leaving her small town’s end-of-summer fair. It’s even worse when she discovers that the phone she now has belongs to the obnoxious, self-centered Talon and that he’s just left for football camp … with her phone. Reluctantly, the two agree to forward messages for a week. And as Keeley gets to know Talon, she starts to like him. Keeley learns there’s more to Talon than the egocentric jock most people see. There’s more to Keeley, too. Texting Talon, she can step out of the shadow of her popular twin brother. Texting Talon, she can be the person she’s always wanted to be.
Sparks fly when the two finally meet to exchange their phones. But while Keeley has been playing a part online, Talon has been keeping a secret. He has a different connection to Keeley — one that has nothing to do with phones, and one that will make their new relationship all but impossible. Knowing what she now knows, can Keeley trust him? And can love in the present erase mistakes of the past?
Review: This was a cute super quick read. I loved Keeley and Talon's chemistry throughout. I also love that it explored the notion that what we show others of ourselves isn't who we are, we are split in two between who we are expected to be and who we want to be. I felt bad for Zach and maybe he can get his own story, with or without Claire. And Nicky too, maybe with Zach? Just thinking! Looking for to more by Lindsey.
