“The portrayal of found family and the threads of love and acceptance woven into this story make it a satisfying read with a hopeful ending. A textured and gratifying novel.” KIRKUS
No one knows Yami is gay, least of all her mum, and Yami intends to keep it that way . . . Until, uh oh, she’s falling in love again.
Yami prefers to be known for her killer eyeliner, not for being one of the only Mexican kids at her new, mostly white, rich Catholic school — or for being gay. So, after being outed by her ex-best friend before transferring to Slayton Catholic, Yami decides to lie low, make her mum proud and definitely NOT fall in love. The thing is, it’s hard to fake being straight when Bo, the only openly queer girl at school, is so annoyingly perfect. And smart. And cute. So cute. Told in a captivating voice that is by turns hilarious, vulnerable, and searingly honest.
