The fourth novel from the phenomenally talented Alice Oseman – one of the most authentic and talked-about voices in contemporary YA.

Georgia feels loveless – in the romantic sense, anyway. She’s eighteen, never been in a relationship, or even had a crush on a single person in her whole life. She thinks she's an anomaly, people call her weird, and she feels a little broken.

so I don’t know about you but I have never read an aro-ace OwnVoices book before?
In other words, we don’t deserve Alice Oseman.
Ellie (faerieontheshelf)
omh hello am I reading this right? Am I right in assuming this has an aro-ace heroine? Am I crying because the premise of this book sounds inherently familiar to my life experience? Yes, yes I am.

EDIT: it’s worth noting that this book & details about it havent been finalised yet, but it is about an aro-ace girl coming to accept herself (not being “cured”) and it is an ownvoices novel. There has been a bit of confusion here & there, but I have absolute faith in Oseman for doing this (and

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHH ALICE OSEMAN WITH AN OV ACE BOOK
Kaja (red panda) *:・゚✧
This is my most anticipated release of 2020, no competition. (sorry Chain of Gold, but you're close second!)

Also this cover hit my feelings like a ton of bricks. Firstly, I'm aro-ace. Secondly, I don't know how to explain the emotion that this illustration conveys, but I sure as hell can tell you that I FEEL this illustration and I feel like this illustration most of the time. And it is painful?? idek.

Ok, I'll try. Like ... I hope that the ways I experience love are ... good enough? For, you

I sure as heck hope this one gets a thorough aromantic sensitivity read, because the blurb and title are leaving me chilled with fear at the damage this could cause.

EDIT NOTE: Yes, I know this is ownvoices, and I know it's an aroace protagonist dealing with internalized things. That doesn't mean it's not an incredibly difficult topic that could go wrong in a lot of ways, and the blurb is awful.

I've been waiting for this announcement for SO LONG. I'm a hardcore Alic Oseman fan, even though her books are pretty uncommon in the US.
