RT Rating

Manning had a smash hit with Guitar Girl. Now the British author is back with an equally loveable story about finding love and figuring out who you are.

The story goes something like this: Brie loves Charlie; Charlie loves Walker; Walker loves Daisy; but Daisy is in love with her girlfriend. Walker isn't gay but Charlie is, which doesn't make things easy on Brie. Gay, straight—who the heck do these
characters think they are? As Walker says, "It's all just labels...It's the person you
end up wanting."

All of Manning's characters have their own distinct, loveable ways, even spoiled Brie and slutty Walker. You can't help but fall in love with every one of them. You'll be surprised by the turn of relationships at the end and feel all warm and fuzzy for it, too. (Jun., 272 pp., $15.99)
