The Hating Game meets Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by way of Morgan Matson in this unforgettable romantic comedy about two rival overachievers whose relationship completely transforms over the course of twenty-four hours.

Today, she hates him.

It’s the last day of senior year. Rowan Roth and Neil McNair have been bitter rivals for all of high school, clashing on test scores, student council elections, and even gym class pull-up contests. While Rowan, who secretly wants to write romance novels, is anxious about the future, she’d love to beat her infuriating nemesis one last time.

Tonight, she puts up with him.

When Neil is named valedictorian, Rowan has only one chance at victory: Howl, a senior class game that takes them all over Seattle, a farewell tour of the city she loves. But after learning a group of seniors is out to get them, she and Neil reluctantly decide to team up until they’re the last players left—and then they’ll destroy each other.

As Rowan spends more time with Neil, she realizes he’s much more than the awkward linguistics nerd she’s sparred with for the past four years. And, perhaps, this boy she claims to despise might actually be the boy of her dreams.

Tomorrow…maybe she’s already fallen for him. 

Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon was pretty good most of the time, but it's really hard for me to completely get into a book when I don't like the main character very much. In this case, Rowan was that character. She was selfish, superficial, and petty. Her friends deserved better. Neil deserved better. I loved Neil to bits though. He was smart, interesting, funny, and heaps more believable of a character than Rowan. I wish the story had been told from his point of view. I enjoyed the scavenger hunt. That's such a fun idea. I wish we would have done something like this when I graduated from high school. This was a good book to help pass the time, and I suppose with the coronavirus self isolations and quarantines going on right now, most of us need something to help pass the time. I liked the premise. I typically love enemies to more stories. Lots of people have enjoyed this one, but it wasn't for me this time. With that being said, the author's own bio states that the girls and women she writes about are "sometimes unlikable". In that regard, it was a success. 

The ARC of Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon was kindly provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley for review. The opinions are my own.

Rachel Lynn Solomon writes, tap dances, and collects red lipstick in Seattle, Washington. She is the author of the YA novels You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone, Our Year of Maybe, and the forthcoming Today Tonight Tomorrow. Her debut adult romantic comedy, The Ex Talk, will be published in spring 2021.

In high school, Rachel sang and played keyboard in an all-girl band, and she was once part of a group of people who broke a Guinness World Record for the most natural redheads in one place.

She has written for newspapers, produced a radio show that aired in the middle of the night, and worked for NPR. Currently she works as a freelance editor. Rachel has been a Pitch Wars mentor since 2014 and currently serves on the Pitch Wars leadership committee.
