Look Both Ways

(2016)
A novel by

 
Thoughtful, funny, and steeped in the wild drama of growing up, Alison Cherry's new novel is the story of a girl hoping she's found a place to belong . . . only to learn that neither talent nor love is as straightforward as she thinks.

A summer away from the city is the beginning of everything for Brooklyn Shepard. Her acting apprenticeship at the Allerdale Playhouse is a chance to prove that she can carve out a niche all her own, surrounded by people who don't know anything about her or her family of superstar performers.

Brooklyn immediately hits it off with her roommate, Zoe, and soon their friendship turns into something more. Brooklyn wants to see herself as someone who's open to everything and everyone, but as her feelings for Zoe intensify, so do her doubts. As she questions her sexuality, her role as an artist, and her place in her family, Brooklyn discovers that neither talent nor love are as straightforward as she thinks.

"Enthralling . . . Brooklyn's journey is shared, at its heart, by all young people, and her story will speak to many readers."--VOYA

"This breezy story of summer love and self-discovery has surprising depth . . . packed with humor and emotion."--Booklist

"A well-written novel that pushes the envelope but remains true to its premise."--SLJ
