Review Not Here to Be Liked by Michelle Quach

Emergency Contact meets Moxie in this cheeky and searing novel that unpacks just how complicated new love can get…when you fall for your enemy.

Eliza Quan is the perfect candidate for editor in chief of her school paper. That is, until ex-jock Len DiMartile decides on a whim to run against her. Suddenly her vast qualifications mean squat because inexperienced Len—who is tall, handsome, and male—just seems more like a leader.

When Eliza’s frustration spills out in a viral essay, she finds herself inspiring a feminist movement she never meant to start, caught between those who believe she’s a gender equality champion and others who think she’s simply crying misogyny.

Amid this growing tension, the school asks Eliza and Len to work side by side to demonstrate civility. But as they get to know one another, Eliza feels increasingly trapped by a horrifying realization—she just might be falling for the face of the patriarchy himself.




This story follows  Eliza, an Asian American teen who hopes to become the editor in chief of her school newspaper.Eliza didn't grow up to me from the beginning I needed some time to like her and understand her.

“And that, friends, is how lady justice find herself straddling the patriarchy atop a well-made bed”

The romance between Len and Eliza was cute, I really liked Len!I loved the concept  and the writing was very good that you want to read more and more.
