A delicious love story with all the toppings, Lauren Morrill’s It’s Kind of a Cheesy Love Story is a contemporary YA rom-com about love, friendship, and pizza, perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli and Jenny Han.
After her mother gave birth to her in the bathroom of a local pizzeria, Beck has been given the dubious privilege of having minor fame, free pizza for life, and a guaranteed job when she turns sixteen—a job she unfortunately can’t afford to turn down.
Now she’s stuck with her geeky co-workers instead of taking Instagram-ready shots with her best friends (and her epic crush).
But maybe the pizza people aren’t all bad. Maybe that pizza delivery guy is kind of cute. And maybe there’s a way to make this Bathroom Baby thing work for her. Because when disaster strikes the beloved pizza place that’s started to feel like home, she’s going to need a miracle—one that might even mean bringing her two worlds together.

Why 5 Stars you say?
- It is exactly what it promises to be – adorably cheesy. I haven’t read a YA in such a long time that I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did.
- With the cheese comes the very fluffy and sweet. It was a very fun, quick read that was adorable. I enjoyed it immensely.
- Beck is a very sweet character. I really love the growth she had – something you really only find in YA & NA books – so I guess I will have to go on a bit of a binge.
- I thoroughly enjoyed the characters at the pizza place. The characters were easy to fall in love with and grow attached too and the antics during dinner shifts were fun.
- The relationship dynamics are very well written. Lauren Morrill very expertly wrote Beck’s interaction with her different social groups.
A really fun, sweet book – I really enjoyed it.
