about

A recipe for disaster: one charming new guy plus two best friends who are equally smitten by him."Dinnison adeptly portrays the rising and falling hopes within an unconventional love triangle. . . . Readers will follow [Maggie] eagerly as she finds her voice and identity."&nbsp
-Publishers Weekly

Maggie and Nash are outsiders. She's overweight. He's out of the closet. The best of friends, they have seen each other through thick and thin, but when Tom moves to town at the start of the school year, they have something unexpected in common: feelings for the same guy. This warm, witty novel-with a clear, true voice and a clever soundtrack of musical references-sings a song of love and forgiveness.
Kris Dinnison has spent nearly two decades as a teacher and librarian. Nowadays, she helps run the retail and café businesses she owns with her husband, she hikes, and she spins classic vinyl. This is her debut YA novel. She lives in Spokane, Washington. Visit her website at www.krisdinnison.net .

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Boring The whole story is about two best friends liking the same guy and finding out about him. The scenes change very quickly and there isn't much detail in the book so I get lost very easily. It's hard to follow along with the story and I don't feel a relationship with the characters because of this.

Editorial Reviews

The characters here are effectively nuanced, flawed but forgivable as they muddle through teenage conundrums of loyalty and love." -Bulletin "All of the protagonists . . .are pushed to ask themselves what expectations other people have of them and whether or not they have accepted these as their own. In the end, Maggie and the others become fully realized characters whose actions cannot be predicted by a YA lit algorithm." -School Library Journal "A powerful tale with an emotional rawness that will resonate with readers." -Booklist "Dinnison adeptly portrays the rising and falling hopes within an unconventional love triangle. . . . Readers will follow [Maggie] eagerly as she finds her voice and identity." -Publishers Weekly "Fans of realistic fiction featuring friendship, loyalty, and trust will enjoy this book." -VOYA "Firmly at the center stands a protagonist whose likable voice and authentic struggle to accept herself and find love in a world that would rather she shrink back-not to mention her crackling chemistry with Tom-lend this fresh, contemporary romantic comedy considerable appeal." -Horn Book Magazine "
