Today, Tonight, Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon:
This book is not just a book, and it is so many more things than just a romance novel. It is a message for every high school senior, and adventure quest, an enemies-turned-lovers story, an unexpected romance, and a new standard for all the books, but especially romance novels.
This book threads the needle between feminism and morality. The two leading characters in the book are Rowan and Neil. They both team up to win their school’s last traditional scavenger hunt for seniors. When the game begins, it becomes more than just a game.
As normal humans, to whom we all can relate, Rowan and Neil have hearts with wants, failings, desires, and insecurities. Rowan is our hero as we flip the pages and read about her role as an aspiring valedictorian, friend, and daughter who struggles to balance all the parts of her life.
