Freddie is unremarkable - too unremarkable.
He doesn't stand out in any way, and in fact teachers and
fellow students keep forgetting who he is. Even his mum thinks he's
a disappointment, and spends almost all her
time at work, producing a TV show.
After a particularly awful night when he embarrasses himself in
front of Jasper Perry (the gorgeous teen star
of Freddie's mum's new show), Freddie decides to follow a new, proactive
philosophy designed to transform his social and romantic
life: saying 'yes' to every opportunity.
It works! Freddie finds himself auditioning for the school musical
(Grease), actually going to parties,
and flirting with hot new boy Zach! He's becoming
a whole new Freddie - maybe even one that his mum might be proud
But the path to love is never smooth, and sometimes getting things
very wrong is an important part of figuring
out what - and who - you really want.
A funny, heart-pulling read from one of the UK's leading writers
of LGBTQ+ teen fiction.
Simon James Green is the award-winning author of Heartbreak
Boys, Alex in Wonderland, and the Noah Can't Even
A perfect next read for fans of Heartstopper, Boyfriend
