A debut YA novel about a throw-down battle for Homecoming King between a transgender teen and the boy he dumped last summer.
Jeremy Harkiss, cheer captain and student body president, won’t let coming out as a transgender boy ruin his senior year. Instead of bowing to the bigots, Jeremy decides to make some noise—by challenging his all-star ex-boyfriend, Lukas, for the title of Homecoming King.
Lukas Rivers, football star and head of the Homecoming Committee, is just trying to find order in his life after his older brother’s funeral and the loss of his long-term girlfriend—who turned out to be a boy. So when Jeremy threatens to break his heart and steal his crown, Lukas hatches a plot to sabotage Jeremy’s campaign.
But then the boys take their rivalry too far and jeopardize the dance for everyone. To save Homecoming, they’ll have to face the hurt they’re both hiding—and the lingering butterflies they can’t deny.
