I swear when it comes to writing friendship stories, Emma Mills always knocks it out of the park. What I love about Foolish Hearts is that this is a story about an unlikely friendship through boy band fandom.

Claudia and Iris do not seem like the kind of people who would be friends, but when Iris and her girlfriend Paige suffer a nasty break up, Iris is forced to work with Claudia to work on a school paper, as well as the school production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. However, one day while working on said project, Claudia learns that Iris loves TION (or This Is Our Now), a boy band that takes over every inch of her bedroom wall. They begin to foster a friendship through their love of TION, and it is adorable.

What I love about Emma Mills' books is that they are very genuine, her heroines very believable, and it's always chock full of humour and heart. I adored the characters in this story, I loved the building of Claudia and Iris' friendship, and I loved all the feelings this book gave me. Even the romance between Claudia and Gideon was adorkable. I just loved everything about this story and the cast and I just found myself in such a happy state of mind while I was reading this book.

Reading an Emma Mills book is like comfort food. It's happiness and fun, and I just love what she does with her characters. Much like This Adventure Ends, I feel like Foolish Hearts is just such a memorable read, and I will continue to support Emma Mills if she continues to keep writing fannish, fluffy, contemporary novels.

This book makes me want to read the author's other titles, so I think it's definitely a winner! All the characters are dynamic and the humor works. It does fall into a couple of tropes, but it doesn't linger in them long enough to present too much of a problem.

I completely adore this book. It read it super fast. I will say I feel like one of the characters is unnecessarily rude. There's no explanation or reasoning that I took from the story to support why she's that way towards everyone . And the main characters love interest wasn't my favorite, however i did really like seeing our main character make new friends and grow into herself a little more.

Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills is about Claudia, a teen who goes to Prospect-Landower School for girls. She has lots of friend's, and has a tendency to eavesdrop on others. When she is caught eavesdropping on the schools ‘it-couple’, she is in deep water.
I thought that Foolish Hearts was a great LGBTQ YA novel. It included not only LGBTQ characters, but showed how society reacts to them. This book was also very comedic and written very well. I actually read the book in 1 day! I would recommend this book to any teen who needs a good, romantic laugh!
