My rating: 2 of 5 stars
so, i do love dork (but not complete) dork leads. but adam and gen did not quite do it for me. mainly it's him and his wanting what's best for her at her doing. it sounds right and should have felt right unless you wonder further why he had to be the one to bring about such moments. And it’s not the little june cleaver moments that had me squinting if I was actually reading what I was reading, because it’s choice, right? Rather it’s the insecurity in her that's later contradicted by how sure she could be in other aspects… that’s what felt off.
the bit about family not knowing her was good an interesting take though because here family in fact doesn’t know best. However, in their place is scientist overachiever man!. why do i hate that fact? why, when later she's all sorts of better than before. maybe, no, surely, it's because she could have become all she eventually became withouthim. at least that's what i hope would have happened.
