    2.5 stars I listened to this on audiobook and I loved the narration by Amin El Gamal. His voice is so pleasant and he really brought the characters to life. The story itself was just ok for me. It definitely felt summery, which I liked, and it did have some cute moments. I can't say I liked Harry that much.

His relationships with other characters felt superficial at times, but at least I liked one of them and I was interested to see how the story would end. The screenplay chapters were kind of hard to follow and they were just taking me out of the story, so I started skipping them halfway through.

    “…and there’s nothing wrong with wanting to be around someone who feels familiar and makes you feel loved.” I picked this up because a young person in my life picked it up at the library and I wanted to know what she was reading. The cover art is very “summery” and I could see why she was taken in. She was smarter than me. She abandoned it 40 pages in. I finished it. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND is sloppily executed.

The cover art is very “summery” and I could see why she was taken in. She was smarter than me. She abandoned it 40 pages in. I finished it. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND is sloppily executed. In the Forward the author insists he is mimicking the rom com movie genre with this book. The problem is is that as a writer he is not skilled enough to pull that off. What we get is clichéd, trite, and poorly written and developed. It is a young adult book, I get that I’m not the target audience, but just because it is a YA book does not mean that it should feel like a teenager wrote it as well. A few quotes: • “I don’t spend too much time imagining what could be, though. I mean we only really have what is.” • “You can go off and see it all-whether you’re running to or from something-but eventually you realize home is pretty special.” • “Sometimes people come into our lives for a little bit, but they don’t stay for a long while…or at least not forever.” My biggest problem with this book is that a 12/13 year old might like it. The world it creates is not something I want someone of that age thinking is okay or realistic. This novel is about being obsessed with body image and pop culture, normalized underage drinking depicted as okay and consequence free, and social media obsessed nitwits. Not for me, and I hope not for most.

Harry wants to escape Citrus Harbor and go to USC to become an academy award winning screenwriter. But he had botched his SATs, thanks to a broken heart. And so he’s left with winning a writing competition as his last chance in putting together an impressive college application, and he only has about three weeks to finish his submission. It’s already hard enough coming up with a great plot twist, he doesn’t need the distractions caused by the return of his still charming ex and meeting the cute new guy to make it even harder. And though he’s determined not to let them divert him from his goals or risk his heart getting broken again, both boys are definitely not making it easy. The perfect summer read, indeed. I loved the cast of characters: Harry, Grant and Logan, of course, but especially Harry’s little sister, Lottie. She was such an adorable little hellion. Also, there’s a minor character named Foster that I would really love to read more about. Now what makes a young adult book great is good character development. These kids are still figuring things out, and they’re bound to make mistakes and sometimes even repeat them. But that’s all right. What matters is that they learn from their mistakes and become better people as a result. And Robby Weber did a good job of doing that to these characters. When it comes to love triangles, I always pick a team, so I always end up disliking the romance or even the story as a whole because, of course, the main character would still spend time with the other team, and I’d be gritting my teeth throughout the scene. But surprise, surprise! The love triangle here wasn’t like that at all, and I didn’t dislike it one bit. I couldn’t pick a team, even if I wanted to. I liked both love interests and I was equally drawn to both of them, Grant with his charm and confidence and Logan with his sweetness and sincerity. And Robby Weber kept me guessing and invested about who it was going to be for Harry upto practically the very end. I didn’t have to experience the comedown from the climax, and I loved that! Also, there’s Harry’s screenplay, the story of which is told alongside his own. It was such a lovely addition to the book. I would have given If You Change Your Mind a solid 5-star rating if it weren’t competing against my life-changing favorites. Nonetheless, I had a great time reading this book and I really liked the characters. It’s highly recommended, and I’m excited to read Robby Weber’s future works.

His dreams are slightly dashed, because after a bad "breakup" with Grant, a boy he wasn't actually dating, his grades have fallen. USC film school is notoriously hard to get into, but homeboy makes it sound like he's trying to go to Stanford pre-med. Chill. He meets Logan at the country club his family frequents. Logan is a newbie in town that has just started to work at the club. His fellow employees have hazed him. Quaint. Harry invites Logan to a party. At said party, Harry gets mad at Logan because he thinks he is leading his girlfriend on. Logan laughs, and explains he isn't into women. I want to throw Foster in here, because he is one of Harry's former hookups that likes to affectionately call him Kensy, but mainly because he's a breath of fresh air. Meanwhile, Harry's bff Hailey is being cheated on by her boyfriend Justin. Everyone knows, including Harry. When this ends up blowing up in his face, a huge fight ensues. The disgusting thing about this is Justin/Hailey were trying to win Best Couple in their high school yearbook. Did you throw up a little? I did. I won't pretend I don't understand the teenagers' plight just because I'm twice their age now. I remember exactly how it was. This ended up being a cute story. There are just better ones.

In this, you will meet Harry, Grant, and Logan. Harry just wants to escape Citrus Harbor but has to jump over one last hurdle before he can. Since he completely messed up his SATs, he has to focus on winning a writing competition so that his college application to USC stands out from all the rest. Unfortunately, things don't go as planned because he is still trying to nurse a broken heart and might be falling for a new guy too. Even though I'm not a huge fan of love triangles, this somehow worked for me. I think it's because I could easily ship Harry with whoever. I wasn't on one person's team this time around and just wanted the kid to be happy. They were all still trying to figure things out so I couldn't really get mad at the mistakes they were making. I did get a little annoyed but that's bound to happen. In the end, I'm so happy that I came across this book randomly. Not disappointed by anything that happened and secretly can't wait to get my hands on another one of Robby's books. Seriously, I volunteer as tribute.

    This book is the perfect summer read. Set in sunny Florida at the summer break, it's about Harry who wants to become a famous Hollywood screenwriter and who is struggling with his love life. It's so refreshing to have a main character who, for once, is not deeply introverted and riddled with anxiety.

Set in sunny Florida at the summer break, it's about Harry who wants to become a famous Hollywood screenwriter and who is struggling with his love life.

He's not exactly an extrovert either, but whereas in almost every other YA book the main character is secretly pining for their crush the whole book long, Harry has problems on a completely different level. There are at least three guys interested in him and he has a hard time sorting through his feelings for them. In the preface the author writes about how he grow up loving rom-coms, but also the lack of gay ones. So he decided to write one himself. I'm glad he did, because this a really great one. It's such a pleasure to read and the world really needs more of that. Books, where people are just gay and it's not the main theme, where people are gay just like others are straight. This book is an amazing debut and I really hope to read more from Robby Weber in the future. I really would like to see this book on screen. Heartstopper has just been released on Netflix and having such a huge impact. We're all desperate for uplifting queer content like this. So, Netflix, please pick up this one. I'm begging you. 🏳️‍🌈 Happy Pride Month everyone 🏳️‍🌈

The book is paying tribute to famous rom-coms, with multiple references of them and uses most of the classic tropes, including the most prominent one: a love triangle.

The book is paying tribute to famous rom-coms, with multiple references of them and uses most of the classic tropes, including the most prominent one: a love triangle. Harry is dealing with a lot this summer: after his grades plummetted last year when his boyfriend Grant moved away without even bothering to tell him in person and left him heartbroken, his last shot for getting accepted to his dream university for screenwriting, USC, is winning a screenwriting competition this summer. Problems: a) he hasn't finished his script, b) Grant is back in town, c) he befriends charming Logan, and might be feeling things for him. Usually, I'm not the biggest fan of love triangles, but in this case I make an exception, because it was obvious with whom Harry had the best chemistry and the healthiest relationship, thus I could read the scenes with the "other one" without rattling my teeth most of the time. Robby portrays the insecurities and indecision of teenagers very accurately, who have to make life choices at such a young age without even knowing what exactly they want. He also captures the summer holiday vibe perfectly, with the surfing, the ocean, the beach club. I loved the little ABBA cosplaying of the Kensington siblings (although I expected more ABBA in this book judging from the title to be honest), and the little sister Lottie was a scene stealer. I also liked Foster a lot. The best friend on the other side, Hailey, was the character I was invested the least. All in all, this is a book that will make you smile and an exciting first novel by Robby Weber!

TW: cheating ex (side character), side character with Alzheimer's, vomiting A main part of this book is a love triangle, something I find so tiresome, ALTHOUGH there's more like 4 love interests... kinda? I do appreciate the authentic portrayal of what it's actually like to crush on people in high school, and how it's less about the commitment and more about who is paying attention to you at the moment. And another positive for this book is that it's about queer joy! The sexuality is simply there, not a source of conflict in the story. There's also a superhero screenplay that somewhat parallels the events of the story running between chapters because the main character wants to go to screenwriting school (I think?), but I was so bored by those sections. It made for too many characters and felt like an addition made after the editor told him it would be fun. It definitely could be fun! If it wasn't like a half-baked cake with a soggy middle. I genuinely remember very little else from this book, except the single POC is the best friend character and that it takes place in Florida. Really wished I liked this more because I love Robby's content, but there are only so many "TSwift"s I can handle. ETA: The chapter titles referencing romcoms was my favorite part of the entire book 🤭 Thank you to the publisher for the early copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

Even though I've spent 3 days of my life reading it, I can't tell you anything that happened. It was all completely unremarkable. The characters were bland, the love interests were irritating, and the structure was a disaster. Seriously, who approved the screenplay segments?? They were horrible.

    This was a cute and fun summer read! The romance/love triangle plot line was entertaining and the main love interest was a complete sweetheart. This is full of humor, pop culture references and summery vibes. This was a pretty light-hearted read and solid YA romance!

    ARC provided by the publisher via netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This was a pretty painful read for me, I want to start off by saying that I feel like this book is targeting a pretty niche audience and It really just wasn’t for me. I didn’t really get most of the pop culture references. Even though I don’t usually reach for a lot of romcoms I can usually get through them and appreciate the genre when it’s done well, sadly this one missed the mark for me.

Even though I don’t usually reach for a lot of romcoms I can usually get through them and appreciate the genre when it’s done well, sadly this one missed the mark for me. I also found the screenplay parts at the end of each chapter to be really obnoxious and it took me out of the story at the end of EVERY chapter. Love triangles can be either really great or really bad and I think that generally is determined by how good the characters are. Harry is a really boring main character and we really don’t get much of his personality through the entirety of the story, what you get from the synopsis is pretty much all you’re going to get in terms of development. He isn’t likeable and his decisions are questionable at best. The love interests in this story also have very little development, who they are when you meet them is pretty much who they are at the end of the book. Story wise it’s very generic and we don’t even get prominent side characters or any real progression to a story because there isn’t much more than the romance and forced comedy.

I felt the author did a great job developing layered characters, who have the room to grow, make mistakes, and learn from them. I love when books have extras like Harry’s screenplay! I also really enjoyed each chapter being the name of a famous movie. While the book is being promoted as a love triangle, and I guess it could technically be one, I think the story is much deeper and really shows the maturity of these boys while so young.

I liked that he had such a strong idea of what he wanted to do after he graduated! I also enjoyed Hailey, Lottie, Milly! I can see what drew Harry to Grant even though he is kind of douchey, I think overall he’s not a bad person! Logan was the perfect amount of awkward, nerdy, confident, and cute!

    Heads up: this review is one massive abba Joke, this may not be suited for pun haters. If You Change Your Mind was a book that seemed really fun. Even the cover was a super trouper. From the romcom and Abba references to the fun story I was the first in line. But mamma Mia, after reading a few pages in I could predict every plot line. The main character was young, sweet, seventeen, and even though he wasn't looking for a king, he knew any guy could be that guy.

Even the cover was a super trouper. From the romcom and Abba references to the fun story I was the first in line. But mamma Mia, after reading a few pages in I could predict every plot line. The main character was young, sweet, seventeen, and even though he wasn't looking for a king, he knew any guy could be that guy. He decides to take a chance on this guy visiting from out of town for the summer and possibly his ex in a casual love triangle hoping one of them will take a chance on him. Honestly I felt the stakes were put to the test and failed. We hear things are happening but the author doesn't lay all his love on the character's emotional stakes, rather we get something that feels fun but just a filler read. There were fun moments and as a whole it was enjoyable. But it is true, and everything isn't new, and all I've learned is this was a beat for beat romcom that was way too predictable for me to get invested in the romance or any subplots. Honestly, the only thing that made me feel bad for the main character was that he lives in Florida, and of course he wants to go to LA because he's made up his mind it must come to an end. In conclusion, thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing. Thanks for all the joy they're bringing. Who can live without it? Me, in all honesty it was fine but I didn't feel I gained anything out of this.

    Thank you to Harper Collins for sending me an ARC! I just finished this excellent book! A gay love triangle written like a classic rom-com - “If You Change Your Mind” had me going through all of the emotions (it even brought a tear to my eye at the end 🥲). A must for your summer reading list! Place a hold at your library or pre-order now! ☀️

    I've been looking forward to this one, this cover is so cute and I love the title from Mama Mia. Love triangles can be kind of tricky to do, but this one was pretty well written and I wasn't always sure who Harry would end up with. There was a dark horse I thought might have a chance too, so I was even more excited to see how things would go. This is definitely a fun summer romance and made me wish for a beach to hang out and relax. I also thought Harry's relationship with his sisters was also s I've been looking forward to this one, this cover is so cute and I love the title from Mama Mia.

Harry does make mistakes throughout this that are frustrating, but he's only seventeen and has a lot to learn about life. The ending is cute and more hopeful than happily ever after, which felt realistic and right for the story. I'm happy I read this and I hope Weber has more books coming!

    So when I picked this up, I was looking for a fun summer romance with some Mamma Mia vibes! It was mostly pretty light on the Mamma Mia vibes, but the summer romance was definitely heavy. I guess it would be technically a love triangle, but I think it's pretty clear early on who is the better of the two options for the MC, so it was a love triangle I was fine with! As for our lovely MC, Harry, I adored him. Though I think it would've been great to go deeper into him about certain things, I ultima So when I picked this up, I was looking for a fun summer romance with some Mamma Mia vibes! It was mostly pretty light on the Mamma Mia vibes, but the summer romance was definitely heavy. I guess it would be technically a love triangle, but I think it's pretty clear early on who is the better of the two options for the MC, so it was a love triangle I was fine with! As for our lovely MC, Harry, I adored him. Though I think it would've been great to go deeper into him about certain things, I ultimately enjoyed him a lot. I also adored our love interests too. Grant and Logan are great love interests and offer different things. Though one of them definitely has my heart a teeny bit more than the other, I actually liked both characters and felt like it made sense why Harry would've liked them to begin with. My only issue is that I would've liked to have a couple more scenes of Harry and Logan alone doing something that connects them more deeply. I think the same could be said for Hailey, Harry's best friend who didn't really feel like his best friend for the majority of the novel to me. His friendship with his coworker Agnes felt more interesting to me and I would've liked to have seen more of that than the side story with Hailey and Justin. Still, I really enjoyed this novel and liked seeing the growth Harry went through in one summer. He's a romcom lover who is so against the very idea of love at the beginning of this, but transforms into who he is by the end of it. Definitely would recommend this book if you love summer, sweet romances, soft cinnamon roll love interests, and romcoms. This book felt like pure summer, sunshine, and romance in a book and I am so pleased I read it! Thank you so much to Inkyard Press for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review!

    Let me just start by saying that I loved this book. This was a fantastic debut novel by Robby Weber. These characters were all thought out so well. I also loved the snippets of the script that Harry was writing throughout. I had all the feels while reading. But the love story is it’s on rom-com for the ages. Adorable characters and amazing writing. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

    This was such a cute debut. Easy and fun to reset. You can definitely tell Robby loves his rom coms which is part of the charm of this book. And as someone who lives in Florida I could easily imagine all the things these characters were doing.
