Publisher's Summary

Seventeen, fashion-obsessed, and gay, Abby Ives has always been content playing the sidekick in other people's lives. While her friends and sister have plunged headfirst into the world of dating and romances, Abby's been happy to focus on her plus-size style blog and her dreams of taking the fashion industry by storm. When she lands a great internship at her favorite boutique, she's thrilled to take the first step toward her dream career. Then she falls for her fellow intern, Jordi Perez. Hard. And now she's competing against the girl she's kissing to win the coveted paid job at the end of the internship. But really, nothing this summer is going as planned. She also unwittingly becomes friends with Jax, a lacrosse-playing bro-type who wants her help finding the best burger in Los Angeles, and she's struggling to prove to her mother - the city's celebrity health nut - that she's perfectly content with who she is. Just as Abby starts to feel like she's no longer the sidekick in her own life, Jordi's photography surprisingly puts her in the spotlight. Instead of feeling like she's landed a starring role, Abby feels betrayed. Can Abby find a way to reconcile her positive yet private sense of self with the image others have of her?

Fantastic performance

I read this book a few weeks ago and loved it, so was thrilled to see an audiobook version as that is my favorite way to re-read books. I had such a specific voice for Abbie in my head, though, I was a little worried about how the narrator would match up. Cassandra was PERFECTION. She caught all the little nuances of tone that made the book so funny, and so sweet, and the character voices were different enough they were recognizable, without distracting with vocal gymnastics some books have. This definitely goes onto my list of comfort audiobooks.

Coming of Age & First Love.

There are lots of firsts in their first summer together. Abby meets Jordi and the summer becomes an exploration of young love and new beginnings. It’s also an adventure in learning about yourself, accepting yourself and loving yourself. Wonderful performance.

Amazing

The adorable, sweet, cute lesbian contemporary I've always wanted. I already know that I'll be listening to this book many more times in the near future.
