About the Book



Worried about her struggling family and her best friend, Aden isn't looking for love. But when Tate walks into Calculus class wearing a yarmulke and a grin, Aden's heart is gone in an instant. This poignant debut novel explores unrequited love, grief, and finding comfort in one's own skin.



Book Synopsis



A poignant and empowering teen novel of grief, unrequited love, and finding comfort in one's own skin.

Aden isn't looking for love in her senior year. She's much more focused on things like getting a solo gig at Ike's and keeping her brother from illegal herbal recreation. But when Tate walks into Calculus class wearing a yarmulke and a grin, Aden's heart is gone in an instant.

The two are swept up in a tantalizingly warm friendship, complete with long drives with epic soundtracks and deep talks about life, love, and spirituality. With Tate, Aden feels closer to her mom--and her mom's faith--than she has since her mother died years ago. Everyone else--even Aden's brother and her best friend--can see their connection, but does Tate?

Navigating uncertain romance and the crises of those she loves, Aden must decide how she chooses to see herself and how to honor her mom's memory.
