Cover Crush: Loveless by Alice Oseman
I am so excited that Scholastic has picked up Loveless by Alice Oseman for publication in the USA, and we get a new illustrated cover by Alice of course! This cover is just so amazing, almost too amazing, when I posted it on Instagram, I received no less than 40 messages asking me if it was a graphic novel adaptation…which clearly the people want – and I would love for that to happen too! For now though, the Oseman fans can finally have a hardcover edition, which will now be easily accessible here (USA) in bookstores and libraries, which is super delightful. Unfortunately, due to the supply chain issues, the release date has been pushed back again to December 28th 2021, so please preorder now if this is a book you want in time for the holiday break!

For fans of Love, Simon and I Wish You All the Best, a funny, honest, messy, completely relatable story of a girl who realizes that love can be found in many ways that don't involve sex or romance.
From the marvelous author of Heartstopper comes an exceptional YA novel about discovering that it's okay if you don't have sexual or romantic feelings for anyone . . . since there are plenty of other ways to find love and connection.
This is the funny, honest, messy, completely relatable story of Georgia, who doesn't understand why she can't crush and kiss and make out like her friends do. She's surrounded by the narrative that dating + sex = love. It's not until she gets to college that she discovers the A range of the LGBTQIA+ spectrum -- coming to understand herself as asexual/aromantic. Disrupting the narrative that she's been told since birth isn't easy -- there are many mistakes along the way to inviting people into a newly found articulation of an always-known part of your identity. But Georgia's determined to get her life right, with the help of (and despite the major drama of) her friends.
