Product Details


“Philips beautifully captures the sweeping sensation of first love . . . while also delivering an enchanting, sweet, modern fairy-tale that offers up an LGBTQ happily-ever-after (something we still see far too little of in pop culture).” —Entertainment Weekly

“A rare sort of romance that is cheesy in the best of ways.” —Publishers Weekly

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist meets Cinderella in this thoroughly modern romance.” —HelloGiggles

“Philips has created a realistic, not-overly-mushy, well-written romance . . . Refreshing.” —School Library Journal

“Philips’ tale of these two talented teens is not without its soap-opera elements . . . but romance fans will forgive all this and simply enjoy the story.” —Booklist
