Signs Point to Yes by Sandy Hall is the kind of book that will make the reader long for summer days with its perfect fangirl of a main character and an amazing dramatic rivalry. If you are looking to hold onto summer for just a while longer, this book is one that is not to be missed!
Jane, a superstitious fangirl, takes an anonymous babysitting job to avoid an unpaid internship with her college-obsessed mom. The only problem? She's babysitting the siblings of her childhood friend and new crush, Teo.
Teo doesn't dislike Jane, but his best friend Ravi hates her, and is determined to keep them apart. So Teo's pretty sure his plans for a peaceful summer are shot. His only hope is that his intermittent search for his birth father will finally pan out and he'll find a new, less awkward home. Meanwhile, at Jane's house, her sister Margo wants to come out as bisexual, but she's terrified of how her parents will react.
In a summer filled with secrets and questions, even Jane's Magic 8 ball can't give them clear answers, but Signs Point to Yes.

REVIEW: Signs Point to Yes Sandy Hall
The story line for Signs Point to Yes has it all! A road trip, a cute summer romance, a search for a long lost father… This is the perfect book to kick back and relax with. While reading, I was totally wishing for summer to come back because this book is so summery. There is even a character who works at the pool! This book is so quick and so adorable.
Main Character Brings Spice to the Story
I really liked Jane’s character in Signs Point to Yes. She is a fellow fangirl who writes Dr. Who crossover fanfiction. I really enjoyed Jane’s character and found her very relatable. She takes on a babysitting job that winds up taking most of her summer, but even worse, she has to deal with Ravi, her nemesis who is always hanging around the house. Jane brings a lot of humour and entertainment to the book, and she adds spice to the story.
A Story of Rivalry and Revenge
Who doesn’t love and old fashioned story about rivalry and revenge? Jane and Ravi have a really interesting hatred towards each other because they see each other almost every day, even though Ravi doesn’t live with the girls Jane is babysitting. There is so much drama and the insults are so hilarious to read. The rivalry is so intense that the kids Jane is babysitting and their brother are constantly breaking up fights between the two. This rivalry really made Signs Point to Yes more funny and upbeat.
Signs Point to Yes is a cute, summery read with a loveable main character and a humorous rivalry. I definitely recommend this book to fans of Morgan Matson/Katie Finn, as it has that same light and adorable summer feel. This is the perfect book to bring back summer!
