Fifteen-vear-old Sage Olivar is writing a Romance novel-with a capital "R." The book's heroine, Angelica, is Sage's ideal
wornan-sensitive, strong, and sexy. There is only one small problem with Sage's novel-it's absolutely dreadful!

Enter George, Sage's would-be boyfriend and unwilling reader of Angelica stories. When she decides to enter her masterpiece in the school writing contest, George is frantic. How can he save Sage from public humiliation?

Told in chapters alternating Sage's and George's point of view, this hilarious story is also a nuanced portrait of teenagers trying to make sense of their feelings and relationships.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

In this teen comedy cum love story, Williams (The True Colors of Caitlynne Jackson) alternates the points of view of Sage and George, two high school wannabe-authors secretly enamored with each other, and, unfortunately, incorporates generous samples of ""their"" work.
