Praise for this book

"What a joy this book was, found myself literally kicking my feet and screaming. Twelfth Knight is a firecracker of a novel, taking a well-beloved Shakespearean classic, gutting out its heart, and forming a fresh, compulsively readable story that is reminiscent of the best of the 90's movie teen cult classics. With charming nods to Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and a captivating heroine who always stands her ground, Alexene Farol Follmuth has composed an irresistible and heartwarming novel." - Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé

"Twelfth Knight is a smart, fresh, and heartwarming rom-com that any reader will enjoy!" - Nick Brooks

"A love letter to fandom and gaming culture. Twelfth Knight is a charming read which doesn't shy away from examining the fraught relationship between fandom, gaming, and misogyny. Vi and Jack encapsulate the perfect enemies-to-lovers romance; opposites in every way but sizzling with chemistry." - Adiba Jaigirdar

"Between the expertly executed slow burn romance, intricate world building, delightful grumpy-sunshine banter, and genuinely joyful cast of characters, Twelfth Knight completely stole my heart. Whipsmart, hilarious, fantastical, and downright swoonworthy, Twelfth Knight is the Excalibur of nerdy, feminist, YA romcoms." - Crystal Maldonado

"In Twelfth Knight, Alexene Farol Follmuth, much like that other writer who wrote that other Twelfth Night, beautifully reimagines a classic tale for the modern moment with tremendous wit, effortless grace, and laugh out loud jokes. Viola and Duke Orsino have never been better together. There is heart and humor here that exemplifies the very best of romance and comedy. There is wisdom here that surprises and salves." - Arya Shahi
