Waterstones Says

Smart, sassy and addressing issues of race, class and sexuality with a freshness and lightness of touch, Johnson’s sparkling rom com finds black teen Liz forced to run for prom queen in her very white neighbourhood.  

The very first book pick for Reese Witherspoon's YA Book Club! '[A] super funny, joyful story that'll have you reliving your high school prom days!' - Reese's YA Book Club. Becky Albertalli meets Jenny Han in a smart, hilarious, black girl magic, own voices rom-com by fantastic debut talent, Leah Johnson. Liz has always believed she's too black, too poor, too awkward to shine in her small, rich, prom-obsessed town. But Liz has an escape plan to attend an uber-elite college, play in their world-famous orchestra, and become a doctor. But when the financial aid she was counting on unexpectedly falls through, Liz's plans come crashing down . . . until she's reminded of her school's scholarship for prom king and queen. There's nothing Liz wants to do less than endure a gauntlet of social media trolls, catty competitors, and humiliating public events, but despite her devastating fear of the spotlight she's willing to do whatever it takes to get to college. The only thing that makes it halfway bearable is the new girl in school, Mack. She's smart, funny, and just as much of an outsider as Liz. But Mack is also in the running for queen. Will falling for the competition keep Liz from her dreams . . . or make them come true?
