The Upside of Unrequitted Love by Becky Albertalli

I loved Simon vs. The Homo Sapien Agenda and was really excited to read this book. I think the author is darling and everyone will enjoy this read. The book started slow for me and I had a hard time relating to the characters but by the middle I was hooked and fully vested in all of the characters and their various plots.

Amazon Summary
Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.
Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly's totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie's new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she'll get her first kiss and she'll get her twin back.
There's only one problem: Molly's coworker, Reid. He's a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there's absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.
