Riley and Rachel have lived in the same house for eight years after Rachel's grandfather died. Riley's parents the Woodlawns decide one day to go to a self help seminar, which is needed for they are incredibly unhappy together. In the meantime,Riley and Rachel are having feelings for each other, but one is going to California, the other to college in New York. What to do?
Enter a mysterious stranger, who tells them to follow six simple steps, and they can toss those silly feelings out the window. But what if they can't? What if it is that four letter word-love?
Lillis has her trademark sense of humor, plus her inward eye shows how beautiful and awkward First Love can be in an uncliched way.Bravo!
The story in We Won’t Feel A Thing sounds like it may rehash familiar YA plotlines, but no. It’s utterly different and new. Dare I say, super fresh! (…No, I won’t say that because it’s true, but dang, I sound like a cheeseball.)
The characters of Rachel and Riley are also fantastic. I love that Lillis sidesteps any gender tropes with them. Rachel and Riley don’t play into gender roles. Like at all. It’s not, “Oh Rachel, is more of a guy and Riley’s kind of girly.” They’re simply people and it is so damned refreshing. AND, they’re people I like. I enjoy Rachel’s empathy with villains in her favorite series and her love of grammar. I love Riley’s talent of glass mosaics.
And honestly they’re kind of the cutest when they are trying muy, muy hard to stop loving each other. It only exacerbates their “symptoms,” and led to me being all “D’awwww.”

Rating: Definitely for maturer audiences at least 16+ (profanity, brief mention of drugs, innuendos, talk about sex with some crude words no graphic sex but if it was ever a movie it would probably be PG-13 as it never strays past that line.)
Side note that may contain a minor spoiler - Like I said I was hesitant to purchase this book because I'm not much of a fantasy reader (spells and such creep me out even the "good" ones.) There is a possible fantasy part in this book but the characters even question whether it could actually work. Also, it seemed more like it was the character's subconscious taking over at those sections especially, factoring what happened with the scientist. That could just be me making it work for me though. :)
This reminds me of the books I used to read in high school English class. I could easily see this book on the curriculum. In fact, while I was reading it, I was thinking up possible essays topics.
The best thing I liked about We Won't Feel A Thing was the scene descriptions. There's something different about the way the author writes them, something that seems sort of unconventional. Pictures just popped into my head and I felt like I was standing right there next to the characters.
I thought We Won't Feel A Thing was fantastic and J. C. Lillis' other book, How To Repair A Mechanical Heart, is going on my reading list.
Too cute! Seriously? Snort. Awwwww! Chuckle. Oh no! Sniff. Sob. Gasp. Giggle. Eugh! XD. ROFL! Oh... Yes!!! Sigh.
I've never read a book that made me feel so many different things in such a short space of time.
This is a wildly improbable, rather magical and entirely charmingYA romance. (If I've left out the Oxford comma, please don't tell Rachel.) Crazy comedy is complemented by rampant pathos, with a good dash of Lemony. True love is laboratory tested by a mad scientist. Wonderfully whimsical, the story spins merrily along, unreeling as irretrievably as the shiny magnetic tape from a cassette. How J. C. Lillis keeps her balance I will never know - but she does, perfectly. Richly spiced with everything from the stricter rules of English grammar (Lynne Truss comes to mind) to a Californian seaside dream and a surreal lakeside ceremony, this is a rare and amazing book, as richly rewarding as it is entertaining. The End Comes Too Soon, At The Perfect Moment.
