Happy May!!

How are my favourite people doing? I hope you are having a wonderful start to May!

Today’s post is one that I am super excited to be doing. If you have been around since the beginning you will know I had the absolute pleasure of working with The Write Reads and the book tours on many an occasion. In fact they are still the only book tours I will always say yes. But I took a little break from them. But GUESS WHOS BACK!!

The brilliant debut novel from author, presenter and LGBTQ+ advocate Calum McSwiggan!

Seventeen-year-old Max has always been out, proud and just a little spoiled. Frustrated by the lack of romantic options in his small-town high school, during an argument with his lifelong best friend Dean, Max lashes out and says he wishes he had never been born gay.

Max gets more than he bargained for when he wakes up to find his wish has come true – not only have his feelings for boys vanished, but so has Dean.

With his school life turned upside down and his relationship with his family in tatters, Max sets out on a journey of rediscovery to find a way back to the life he took for granted, and the romance he thought he’d never have.

A deliciously romantic YA debut that’s What If It’s Us and One Last Stop!
