Crystal Maldonado recommends
Twelfth Knight (2024)
Alexene Farol Follmuth
"Between the expertly executed slow burn romance, intricate world building, delightful grumpy-sunshine banter, and genuinely joyful cast of characters, Twelfth Knight completely stole my heart. Whipsmart, hilarious, fantastical, and downright swoonworthy, Twelfth Knight is the Excalibur of nerdy, feminist, YA romcoms."
The No-Girlfriend Rule (2024)
Christen Randall
"The No-Girlfriend Rule is the fat, nerdy book of my dreams. A beautiful reminder that if you've ever felt like an 'other,' there is still space for you at the table."
We Got the Beat (2024)
Jenna Miller
"A sweet, sapphic delight from start to finish, We Got the Beat is the perfect read for fat queer girls with big dreams. With humor and heart, Jenna Miller celebrates friendship, identity, bodies, family, romance, and the unfettered joy of figuring out who you are, what you want, and what you deserve."
