LAUNCH EVENT for This Is Why They Hate Us by AARON H. ACEVES

Friday, August 26th at 6:00PM EST - VIRTUAL & LIVE
17th Street Location

A Summer YA Love Story!

Join us for the HYBRID LAUNCH of This Is Why They Hate Us by AARON H. ACEVES, in conversation with BRIAN D. KENNEDY, the author of A Little Bit Country!

Enrique “Quique” Luna has one goal this summer — get over his crush on Saleem Kanazi by pursuing his other romantic prospects.

Never mind that he’s only out to his best friend, Fabiola.

Never mind that he has absolutely zero game.

And definitely forget the fact that Saleem is leaving L.A. for the summer to meet a girl his parents are trying to set him up with.

Luckily, Quique’s prospects are each intriguing in their own ways. There’s stoner-jock Tyler Montana, who might be just as interested in Fabiola as he is in Quique; straight-laced senior class president, Ziggy Jackson; and Manny Zuniga, who keeps looking at Quique like he’s carne asada fresh off the grill. With all these choices, Quique is sure to forget about Saleem in no time.

(Right?)
