Product Details

Praise

“A smart, heartfelt teen romance . . . Magic.” —NPR

“Dugan returns to the sweet Sapphic vibes of Hot Dog Girl with this newest, about two girls with undeniable chemistry and one big obstacle to being together.” —BuzzFeed

“An empathetic, relatable love story, Some Girls Do might be Jennifer Dugan’s best novel to date.” —Bust

“Swoony romance with well-crafted multidimensional characters rarely seen in young adult literature, making for a fast-paced read you won’t want to put down . . . A thoughtful exploration of coming out and safety, a necessary conversation for those within the queer community.” —Culturess

* “Heartfelt and thoughtful . . . An entertaining enemies-to-lovers romance.” —Shelf Awareness, starred review

“Succeeds in its portrayal of serious issues coupled with the giddy adrenaline rush of first love . . . Dugan nails the young adult voice. Morgan and Ruby are fully realized and age-appropriately flawed.” —School Library Journal

“A nuanced sapphic romance that guides its heroines as they struggle with their identities and discover their voices. A quietly powerful addition to the canon.” —Booklist

“Dugan gives each protagonist a distinct voice and compelling point of view, and readers will sympathize with their challenges as they find their ways to love . . . A complex and poignant queer romance.” —Kirkus Reviews

A sweet novel that offers plenty of rough edges and no easy answers.” —BookPage

“An enjoyable romantic tale.” —Publishers Weekly

“Come for the joy of seeing the beauty queen get the girl; stay for the compassionate exploration of queer visibility in all its complexity. Some Girls Do is beautiful, necessary, and completely irresistible.” —Becky Albertalli, New York Times bestselling author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

“Earnest, wistful, romantic, and real, Some Girls Do captures butterflies-in-your-stomach, most-important-thing-ever first love and still finds room to explore the messiness of coming out and coming of age queer.” —Casey McQuiston, New York Times bestselling author of Red, White & Royal Blue
 
“Dugan’s best yet! Some Girls Do is bright and aching, with a beautifully rendered relationship at its heart.” —Rory Power, New York Times bestselling author of Wilder Girls

“Dugan delivers a story full of nuance, longing, and incredible growth. Some Girls Do is queer romance at its best.” —Isabel Sterling, author of These Witches Don’t Burn
