Avery Jennings is a punk-rock guitarist with a secret weakness for rom-coms and Taylor Swift. Her band, Detonate the Gazelle is ready to move to Austin after graduation, but Avery is having second thoughts. She’s fallen hard for Madison Shea, student council president with a douchebag boyfriend, after their orbits collide at Oak Bluff High’s inaugural Gay-Straight Alliance meeting. Even though it goes against her rules about crushing on straight girls, Avery relentlessly pursues Madison. Their chemistry is too magnetic to deny and soon they are making out in car washes and school bathrooms and holding hands under tables.  Avery wants to take their relationship public but Madison is afraid of her conservative family’s reaction and that it’ll ruin her chances as Prom Queen. Their secret relationship is put to the ultimate test when student council vetoes a proposal for a gay-friendly prom and the club decides to throw a free Unprom the same night as Prom with Detonate the Gazelle as the headliner. If Unprom proves to be more popular than Prom, Madison will hold it against her and Avery will lose her shot at taking her relationship with Madison public. What started off as a love song may have just turned into a breakup ballad.

It’s a teenage Kissing Jessica Stein with a Dawson’s Creek vibe set to a soundtrack of Sleater-Kinney, Tegan and Sara, and Taylor Swift.

Proceeds from my book sales will go to the Gay Lesbian & Straight Education Network because all teens needs a safe space in school.

Lexi Hamilton is bad at love, but great at dispensing advice with her Magic 8 ball on her call-in radio show. She’s not the heartbreaker her classmates assume her to be. Ever since her mom died last spring, Lexi’s been quelling her grief by kissing strangers at parties and slinging soft serve at the Dairy Kurl. Senior year should be cake as long as her aunt’s cats don’t kill her and she keeps her frenemy Erin Burton from stealing her radio show.
When Oak Bluff High’s administration decides to sell the radio station, Lexi and her friends fight back. Lexi forms a temporary truce with Erin to help save the station. The more time they spend together, the more Lexi thinks about kissing Erin and less about how irritating she is, especially after Erin helps Lexi navigate the awkward reappearance of Lexi’s bio dad. If only the Magic 8 Ball could predict the fate of the station and of her heart.
