    *Starred Review* Felicity thinks that her mom, Hannah, has always done things in the wrong order: she sold an app, conceived Felicity via sperm donor, and now spends her days ghostwriting superhero novelizations, sleeping in, and dyeing her hair bright colors. Felicity, by contrast, is organized and overinvolved, even though extreme stress landed her in the hospital over midterms. When Hannah gets engaged, Felicity plans to throw her a perfect wedding—one that will also please Felicity's traditional Jewish Bubbe and land Felicity an internship at a major event-planning company. When Nancy, Felicity's friend from an LGBTQ seminar, offers her family's apple orchard as a venue, friendship blooms into something more. But Felicity, who is biromantic and asexual, has no idea what an actual relationship would look like for her or if she could handle the expectations any potential partner might have. Felicity's mind isn't an easy place to be: her anxiety can be overwhelming, and she doesn't always get the help she needs. But her developing relationship with Nancy rings profoundly true, and this is a tender, lovingly depicted capture of self-discovery and dating while asexual—one that is infrequently portrayed for readers of any age. For that reason alone, stock up. Grades 8-11. Copyright 2023 Booklist Reviews.
