New from the author of Can’t Take That Away comes a sex-positive, fairytale-inspired contemporary YA that celebrates first love and self-acceptance.
Chase is a budding animator and hopeless romantic, but he’s plagued with the belief that he’s not enough for anyone. He’s recovering from an eating disorder and can’t quite figure out his gender identity. When Chase starts college, he has to navigate being away from home, finding his squad, and contending with his ex-best friend who is gunning for the same mentorship.
Then Chase meets Jack, a pragmatic poet who longs to experience life outside of his sheltered world. But Chase throws everything into question for Jack, who is still discovering his sexual identity, having grown up in close-knit conservative family. Chase will have to learn to love—and be enough for—himself, while discovering what it means to truly live.
This new swoony YA from Steven Salvatore is perfect for fans of What If It’s Us.
