Amazon ♡ Chapters ♡ TBD
Meg Cabot meets Glee in this breezy, hilarious, deceptively smart YA about privilege, pretense, and realizing that every story needs a hero. Sometimes it's just not you.
When her best friend Hannah comes out the day before junior year, Daisy is so ready to let her ally flag fly that even a second, way more blindsiding confession can't derail her smiling determination to fight for gay rights.
Before you can spell LGBTQIA, Daisy's leading the charge to end their school’s antiquated ban on same-sex dates at dances—starting with homecoming. And if people assume Daisy herself is gay? Meh, so what. It's all for the cause.
What Daisy doesn't expect is for "the cause” to blow up—starting with Adam, the cute college journalist whose interview with Daisy for his university paper goes viral, catching fire in the national media. #Holy #cats.
With the story spinning out of control, protesters gathering, Hannah left in the dust of Daisy’s good intentions, and Daisy's mad attraction to Adam feeling like an inconvenient truth, Daisy finds herself caught between her bold plans, her bad decisions, and her big fat mouth.
Why We’re Waiting On It
Dani and Jamie were both really intrigued by this book. The idea that the main character isn’t necessarily the main character, but a side character in someone else’s story is something that makes Jamie want to read this book right now. Jamie also thinks that the idea of privilege being put in check in a YA LGBT+ themed book is something that needs to be done a bit more and is really interested to see happen! Dani feels like she might also take things too far, so this book will probably be good for her… >_<;
