From the author of Love, Simon ( Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda ) bestselling YA rom-com queen Becky Albertalli, comes a new novel about daring to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight in love, life and, yes, theatre.
Contrary to popular belief, best friends Kate and Anderson are not codependent. Carpooling to and from theatre rehearsals? Environmentally sound and efficient. Consulting each other on every single life decision? Basic good judgment. Pining for the same guys from afar? Shared crushes are more fun anyway.
But when Kate and Andy's latest long-distance crush shows up at their school , everything goes off-script. Matt is talented and sweet, and Kate likes him. She really likes him. The only problem? So does Anderson.
Turns out, communal crushes aren't so fun when real feelings are involved. This one might even bring the curtains down on Kate and Anderson's friendship.
Praise for Becky Albertalli:
'The love child of John Green and Rainbow Rowell' Teen Vogue
'Worthy of Fault in Our Stars -level obsession.' Entertainment Weekly
'Heart-fluttering, honest, and hilarious.' Stephanie Perkins, author of Anna and the French Kiss
