About the Book

From the New York Times bestselling author of EVERY DAY, this is a queer love story for the ages--told over the course of a couple's first ten dates.

When a blue-haired boy (Ryan) meets a pink-haired boy (Avery) at a dance--a queer prom--both feel an inexplicable but powerful connection. Follow them through their first ten dates as they bridge their initial shyness and fall in love--through snowstorms, groundings, meeting parents (Avery's) and not (Ryan's), cast parties, heartbreak, and every day and date in between.

★ "A swoon-worthy LGBTQIA+ romance with a lot of heart." —School Library Journal, starred review

"Forefronts the power and gravity of all-encompassing first love." —Publishers Weekly

"Levithan’s quietly musing prose overflows with earnest emotion and understanding....An intimate unfurling of first love." —Kirkus Reviews

"This book falls within such a range of readership: queerness is also (another) book of two boys kissing and high-octane drama, for those deserving audiences seeking lives resembling their own in the romance genre." —The Bulletin
