Book Review: Today Tonight Tomorrow

This book came out yesterday and my preordered copy came early so I was able to read it yesterday! I am so glad that I was able to read it because I absolutely loved it!

Today Tonight Tomorrow follows Rowan Roth on her last day of high school. She has spent the last four years competing with Neil McNair, her high school nemesis. She is determined to beat him one last time before they go their separate ways. And because he has just gotten valedictorian over her, she decides the one way she will beat him is Howl, a scavenger hunt competition that goes all around their city of Seattle. But when they discover that a group of students are out to get them, they team up, hoping that they can wait until they’re some of the last players. But as the night goes on, they both discover that maybe they don’t hate each other as much as they originally thought.

This book has amazing Jewish rep! Rowan is biracial and Jewish and Neil is Jewish as well, and they had a lot of amazing discussions about identity that I could really relate to! They talk a lot about what it is like being one of the only Jewish kids at school and the various microagressions and Anti-Semitism they face, including one comment in the book that Rowan overhears about her. As someone who barely knows any other Jewish kids where I live, I could really connect to the discussions they were having about religion and identity.

Overall, the story is very predictable. You know going into it that it will be an enemies-to-lovers story and even the major plot twist I had predicted pretty early on. But this book isn’t really about the story. It’s about two people finding out that they had a lot more in common than they originally thought and learning to change their assumptions about each other, and Rowan changing her ideas of success in high school. It’s also a love letter to the city of Seattle.

There were also some amazing discussions about romance novels! Since Rowan is an aspiring romance writer, she faces a lot of self doubt because the people around her don’t take romance novels very seriously. I loved watching Rowan become more comfortable talking about her passion and it was really cool to see a book that was so positive towards other romance books!
