Sixteen-year-old Declan is the perfect son . . . except for one tiny issue. When his sister Delia comes home to find him trying on her clothes, he fears her judgment, but she only fears his fashion choices. One quick makeover later, Declan is transformed into Delia’s mysterious cousin Layla and dragged to the party of the year, hosted by Carter, the most popular boy in school.
When Carter meets Layla, he fumbles to charm her. He adores her sense of humor and her poise. But when she vanishes in the middle of the night, he’s left confused and determined to solve the mystery of who she is.
As their school year begins, their high school embraces a policy of intolerance, and both Declan and Carter know they must stand up. Carter is tired of being a coward and wants to prove he can be a knight in shining armor. Declan is sick of being bullied and wants desperately to be himself. If they team up, it could be a fairy-tale ending, or a very unhappy ever after.
5✨s – I’m not typically a young adult (YA) reader but the blurb on this looked really good. Everything about this book was amazing!!! The FEELINGS, the feelings, the feelings. Reading about Declan’s journey, growth, and life was heartbreaking yet so damn rewarding. Carter gave me surprises at every turn. The way the author told the tale was great reading (running off to see what else she has written). The subject held my heart and feelings for the entire book (and a very long one at that!!). Read it, Read it, Read it!!!!
