review: pinch me by adena halpern

For all of Lily’s life, her mother and grandmother have advised her to marry an ugly man who treats her terribly! Although they never explained, Lily always dated men who fell into that category until she met a wonderful man named Gogo. After they elope, Lily discovers her family is cursed—Gogo no longer remembers her; worse, he’s unhappily married and never fulfilled his dream of becoming a doctor. Lily then sets out to break the curse despite the fact that no woman in her family has ever succeeded.

Pinch Me is a hilarious modern-day fairy tale. The conversations between the generations were fantastic and really made the characters come to life. The various struggles Lily faced as she tried to win back Gogo were very compelling, especially when she started questioning whether or not truly loving Gogo meant leaving Gogo to his current life.
5/5
