One secret can ruin everything.


Jesse Howell goes from being a nobody to the most well-known student at Bradley High School after her biggest secret is exposed. She’s the one thing her parents don’t want her to be: gay.


After working hard over the years to keep her sexuality a secret, it’s all undone in a single night. Now everyone knows and they’re all eager to voice their opinion about it. Some are encouraging, while others are cruelly unsupportive.


With graduation–and any hope she has of escaping her oppressive parents– still two years away, Jesse must decide how to navigate her life until then.


Will she find the strength to be unapologetically herself, or will she succumb to the hateful judgments of others and lose herself completely?


This is a Girl Crush prequel that can be read as a stand-alone.
