Summary of the Book:

From Lambda award–winning and acclaimed author of Girl Mans Up, M-E Girard, comes a stand-alone sex-positive coming-of-age story about a teen named Baylee who’s torn between her heart and her hormones as she navigates her feelings for her best friend, Freddie, and new friend, Alex. Perfect for fans of Fat Chance, Charlie Vega.

Sixteen-year-old Baylee has never been kissed, but she wants to do way more than that. She’s had a huge crush on her gorgeous best friend and neighbor, Freddie, for years, but since she doesn’t look like the type he normally dates, the judgmental voice in her head tells her he’ll never see her as more than a friend.

Then Baylee meets Alex online and she starts to fall for this sweet, funny barista who likes her just as she is. But when Freddie makes a move on Baylee and a virus shuts the world down, Baylee will find herself torn as everything starts happening at once and she navigates the messy waters of love and desire. It helps that she’s observed her friends’ relationship drama, so she knows exactly what mistakes not to make . . . right?

M-E Girard delivers a rich, honest, boundary-pushing story about a girl exploring her desires.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I read the blurb around this book and it is not something that you see in books all that often. I was excited to read it and when I got my hands on it I started to read it right away. Baylee had a guy friend that did not look at her like she wanted. Then she had the sweet Alex who wanted her just the way she is. I so wanted to love this book and the stance it took, but the more I read I just did not really like the way it went. Baylee changed and not for the better she went about all of it the wrong way. I did not like the ending of the book either.

My Rating of the Book: 2 Stars
