Courtney Cooper and Jupiter Sanchez (Coop & Jupe!) have been next-door neighbors and best friends since they were seven-years-old. She's his partner-in-crime and other half. But lately, Cooper can't ignore he might want something more than friendship from Jupiter.
When Rae Chin moves to town she can't believe how lucky she is to find Coop and Jupe. Being the new kid is usually synonymous with pariah, but around these two, she finally feels like she belongs. She's so grateful she wants to kiss him...and her.
Jupiter has always liked girls. But when Rae starts dating Cooper, Jupe realizes that the only girl she ever really imagined by his side was her.
One story. Three sides. No easy answers.
Courtney and Jupiter have been best friends since they were kids. Courtney is in love with Jupiter but Jupiter is a lesbian. Then we enter the new girl Rae who is attracted to them both. Whew, chile. This book is geared for a younger audience but these kids were going through it like adults at times. They had so many conflicted feelings, trying to find who they really are and what they like. This was a good coming of age story so to speak.
I really liked Courtney in this story. He had a good head on his shoulders and he was very caring. Rae was too wishy washy for me and too into her head at times. The whole I can’t believe they both want to be my friends started to get on my nerves. Jupiter was cool and we would be friends in real life. I loved all the work she did in the community because she really wanted to make a difference.
So after reading and loving Dear Martin by this author I couldn’t wait to read this book. It’s a complete 180 and a more light hearted read. I enjoyed the story and I like that the author is able to switch things up. I also learned some new terms in LGBTQ community. Stone has a lot of promise and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
