Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

"If you're looking for a novel to fill the To All The Boys I've Loved Before-shaped hole in your heart, this is the book for you." -Camille Perri, author of When Katie Met Cassidy

How (Not) to Ask a Boy to Prom is a modern gender-bent young adult rom com from S. J. Goslee.

Nolan Grant is sixteen, gay, and very, very single.

He's never had a boyfriend, or even been kissed. It's not like Penn Valley is exactly brimming with prospects. Nolan plans to ride out the rest of his junior year drawing narwhals, working at the greenhouse, and avoiding anything that involves an ounce of school spirit.

Unfortunately for him, his adoptive big sister has other ideas. Ideas that involve too-tight pants, a baggie full of purple glitter, and worst of all: a Junior-Senior prom ticket.

From The Publisher*When Nolan's sister tries to get him a boyfriend, he fake-dates a bad boy instead in this modern gender-bent young adult rom com.
Review Quote*

"A smash hit for teen romcom fans wanting a queer read-alike to Jenny Han's To All the Boys I've Loved Before." -School Library Journal

"Illuminating and humorous. Goslee has produced a delightful comedy of errors populated by complex characters that exhibit emotional depth while navigating the angst and drama of a queer YA romance." -Booklist

"Full of humor and tenderness, this contemporary YA will satisfy readers looking to swoon." -Buzzfeed

"The modern voice and humor S.J. Goslee brings to the story keeps this tale-as-old-as-time fresh and new . . . If you're looking for a novel to fill the To All The Boys I've Loved Before-shaped hole in your heart, this is the book for you." -Camille Perri, author of When Katie Met Cassidy

Praise for Whatever.:

Biographical NoteS.J. Goslee writes books about teenagers (Whatever, How Not to Ask a Boy to Prom) and fanfiction about werewolves, and has a not-so-secret love of commas, run-on sentences, alt rock, and dogs. She lives outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with her husband, two sons, and an ill-advised number of animals.
