A TOP 10 RAINBOW LIST BOOK

William C. Morris YA Debut Award nominee Carrie Mesrobian delivers a "raw, sympathetic coming-of-age story [that] uncovers the messy, painful, yet vitally important process of self-discovery" (Booklist, starred review) when a high school senior comes to terms with his attraction to both his girlfriend and his male best friend.

It took Will Caynes seventeen years to have his first kiss. He should be ecstatic...except that it was with his best friend, Angus, while they were both drunk and stoned. Will's not gay, but he did sort of enjoy whatever it was he felt with Angus. Unsettled by his growing interest in Angus, Will avoids his friend and even starts dating a sophomore, Brandy. When he's hooking up with her, he's totally into it, so he must be straight, right? Then why does he secretly keep going back to Angus?

Confusing as Will's feelings are, they're a welcome distraction from his complicated home life. His father has started drinking earlier each day when he should be working on never-ending house renovations. And his mom--divorced and living in a McMansion with her new husband--isn't much help, unless she's buying Will a bunch of stuff he doesn't need. Between the two of them, neither feels like much of a parent--which leaves Will on his own in figuring things out with his girlfriend and best friend. He loves them both, but deciding who to be with will ultimately hurt someone. Himself, probably the most.

Review:

Mesrobian once again employs a fearless and honest tone. Her portrayal of bisexuality is thoughtful, and realistic. The respect with which Mesrobian speaks to her teen audience adds weight and validity. A great addition for most libraries, and perfect for older teens looking for nuanced and realistic fiction. --School Library Journal"

In Will s unapologetic voice, Mesrobian s raw, sympathetic coming-of-age story uncovers the messy, painful, yet vitally important, process of self-discovery. A unique, imperative novel. --Booklist (starred review)"

Pitch perfect, raw, and moving. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Mesrobian s second novel is brutally honest and unsentimental. A rare examination of bisexuality in fiction for teens. --Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)"

Arresting and raw, Mesrobian s deft prose cuts to the quick, shining a light on the limbo so many of us feel-both inside and out-assuring us that we are not alone. --Aaron Hartzler, Lambda Award finalist for Rapture Practice"
