Product description


"Blake captures all the exhilaration of a first crush without shying away from Ivy's confusion....The sisters' relationship is one of the great rewards of this novel that includes a large and vivid cast of secondary characters, who give the story its sense of abundant texture."―The New York Times Book Review

"There are some books that we never forget. This is one of those books. Impactful, emotional, and important."―
Erin Entrada Kelly, Newbery award-winning author of Hello, Universe

"A tenderhearted novel that should be in the hands of every reader."―
Kat Yeh, author of The Truth About Twinkie Pie and The Way to Bea

"Ashley Herring Blake's novel captures the confusion, thrills and heartache of a first crush so perfectly that you will hold this book close to your heart."―
Lisa Yee, author of the DC Super Hero Girls series

* " Ivy's story is no mere niche-filler in LGBTQ middle-grade realism--it's a standard-setter."―
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Filling a much-needed gap in middle grade literature, this story addresses not just the topic of a first crush, but also the invisibility frequently felt by middle children...Young readers will find Ivy's challenges very real and will sympathize with her choices, both good and bad."―
School Library Journal, starred review

* "This is an emotionally sensitive and elegantly written novel about loss and the first stirrings of love."―
Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This necessary and emotionally complex addition to the body of middle-grade literature offers readers a positive, complex, and courageous portrayal of burgeoning sexuality and relationships within the world of junior high."―

"Blake creates a sensitive portrayal of a preteen who's begun to figure herself out but isn't sure how she meshes with others, and of the bumbling and overstressed, but well-meaning, friends and family around her."―
The Horn Book
