In this YA romcom about being on the asexual spectrum, a girl discovers that sometimes the best parts of life can’t be planned.
When her mom gets engaged, Felicity sees the wedding as the perfect opportunity to show off her even planning skills. Especially when her friend Nancy offers her family’s apple orchard as a venue. But when it starts to seem like there might be something besides friendship between them, Felicity isn’t sure how she feels. As someone on the asexuality spectrum, what would dating even look like for her? And would Nancy be open to dating when Felicity doesn’t even know what she wants from a relationship?
Suddenly the summer is a lot more complicated. Can Felicity wrangle her irresponsible mom, juggle her judgmental grandmother, figure out her feelings for Nancy, and plan the perfect wedding? Or will all of her plans come crashing down around her?
