An ode to late bloomers, new experiences, first love, and what it means to be a Real Teenager.
Seventeen-year-old Codi Teller has never been kissed—and it’s not just because she’s gay. It’s also because she and her two best friends, Maritza and Jakory, spend more time watching movies in her basement than engaging in real life. But when Codi befriends Ricky, a confident senior who takes her under his wing, Codi's world is cracked wide open to include new friends, late nights, and Lydia—a beautiful senior who may or may not like girls. The only problem? Codi never tells Maritza or Jakory about any of it.
This stunning YA novel from debut author Kelly Quendlin is a deeply relatable story about identity, sexuality, and what it means to be a Real Teenager.
