From the author of Hot Dog Girl comes a fresh and funny YA contemporary romance about two teens who fall in love in an indie comic book shop. Jubilee has it all together. She's an elite cellist, and when she's not working in her stepmom's indie comic shop, she's prepping for the biggest audition of her life. Ridley is barely holding it together. His parents own the biggest comic-store chain in the country, and Ridley can't stop disappointing them--that is, when they're even paying attention. They meet one fateful night at a comic convention prom, and the two can't help falling for each other. Too bad their parents are at each other's throats every chance they get, making a relationship between them nearly impossible . . . unless they manage to keep it a secret. Then again, the feud between their families may be the least of their problems. As Ridley's anxiety spirals, Jubilee tries to help but finds her focus torn between her fast-approaching audition and their intensifying relationship. What if love can't conquer all? What if each of them needs more than the other can give?

Jubilee and Ridley meet at a comic con. Her parents own a small indie shop. His run a cooperate chain. He agrees to spy on them to gain his dad‘s approval & spend more time with her. (Think You‘ve Got Mail, but with comics). I figured the bulk of this book was going to build to his identity being revealed. Dugan defy avoids making this the centerpiece of the story. The book about so much more. Issues around anxiety and depression are explored.
