YA Book Club!
'[A] super funny, joyful story that'll
have you reliving your high school prom days!' -
Reese's YA Book Club.
Liz has always believed she's too black, too poor, too awkward
to shine in her small, rich, prom-obsessed town. But
Liz has an escape plan to attend an uber-elite college, play in
their world-famous orchestra, and become a doctor.
But when the financial aid she was counting on unexpectedly falls
through, Liz's plans come crashing down . . . until she's reminded
of her school's scholarship for prom king and queen.
There's nothing Liz wants to do less than endure a gauntlet of
social media trolls, catty competitors, and humiliating public events,
but despite her devastating fear of the spotlight she's willing
to do whatever it takes to get to college.
The only thing that makes it halfway bearable is the new girl
in school, Mack. She's smart, funny, and just as much of an outsider
But Mack is also in the running for queen. Will falling for the
competition keep Liz from her dreams . . . or make them come true?
Becky Albertalli meets Jenny Han in a smart, hilarious,
black girl magic, own voices rom-com by fantastic debut talent,
