Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
When his aunt's illness keeps Ollie in North Carolina, he hopes his summer fling with Will can grow into something more, but at school Will proves to be a completely different--and firmly closeted--man.
Will Tavares is the dream summer fling, and Ollie thinks he's found his happily ever after. Then Will stops texting him back, and a family emergency has Ollie uprooted and enrolled at a new school in North Carolina. Turns out Collinswood High is where Will goes to school-- but here he is a class clown, closeted-- and a bit of a jerk. When Will starts popping up in every area of his life, Ollie would be an idiot to trust him again. Right?

    When Ollie's family visits North Carolina for the summer to help care for Ollie's sick aunt, he has the perfect summer fling with Will. Then Aunt Linda's cancer worsens. The only upside to moving to North Carolina for senior year is that his thing with Will might turn into something real, but at school, Will is a different person: popular, a basketball star . . . and very much in the closet. Hopelessly devoted he may be, but shy, socially awkward Ollie knows he doesn't stand a chance, not when the basketball team is constantly making homophobic jokes. It takes the friendship of three girls—sweet, musical Juliette; ambitious aspiring model Niamh; and caustic, fierce Lara—for Ollie to realize that, whether or not Will is in the picture, he's his best if he's himself. This is a sweet and earnest adaptation of Grease that neatly updates its source material; instead of changing for each other, Ollie and Will (and a few others) have to do it for themselves. A worthwhile romance for any collection. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
