Riley Weaver Needs a Date to the Gaybutante Ball (2023)
Jason June
"A laugh-out-loud gender euphoric dream, RILEY WEAVER serves zany 90s teen romcom realness that made me gay-gasp with glee! Riley's journey is a fabulous tapestry that adeptly weaves threads of important commentary about gay culture and identity discourse, as well as inter-community support (and the inevitable lack thereof), with a glittery patchwork of self-love that had me rooting for all the gaybutantes out there who need this story. Jason June's books always make me feel seen while speaking truth to queer power, and RILEY WEAVER is no exception. Femme, fierce, and ferocious, you simply cannot miss Riley's fabulous debut!"
Anything But Fine (2022)
Tobias Madden
"Anything But Fine is anything but just fine; it's everything inspiring, complicated, and beautifully human, like a pirouette. Luca is a broken ballet dancer trying his best to find himself in a new world where his dreams are as shattered as his foot, but Tobias Madden deftly explores how imperfect the path is to rebuilding, finding yourself, and forging ahead when all seems lost. With a messy, swoony romance and an array of complex and evolving relationships, Luca's story is a lesson in realizing that the only misstep is not taking the next step, and the power that comes from within."
