When the picture tells the story…

Senior year is almost over, and Jamie Peterson has a big problem. Not college—that’s all set. Not prom—he’ll find a date somehow. No, it’s the worst problem of all: he’s fallen for his best friend.

As much as Jamie tries to keep it under wraps, everyone seems to know where his affections lie, and the giggling girls in art class are determined to help Jamie get together with Mason. But Jamie isn’t sure if that’s what he wants—because as much as Jamie would like to come clean to Mason, what if the truth ruins everything? What if there are no more road trips, taco dinners, or movie nights? Does he dare risk a childhood friendship for romance?

This book is about what happens when a picture reveals what we can’t say, when art is truer than life, and how falling in love is easy, except when it’s not. Fan Art explores the joys and pains of friendship, of pressing boundaries, and how facing our worst fears can sometimes lead us to what we want most.

Pick it: for a super cute read. No fantastical monsters or deep dark issues here, just the drama of high school, and figuring out what (and who) you want. You'll be shipping Ja/son in no time.

Skip it: if you're looking for something with strong plotting and consequences. This book is an entertaining read but it's definitely fluffy.

Pair with: David Levithan's Boy Meets Boy for another sweet LGBTQ book.
