Day’s YA – THIS IS NOT A LOVE SCENE

TGIF, YA friends!

We’re heating up this chilly Friday with a steamy #ownvoices YA romance.

THIS IS NOT A LOVE SCENE by S.C. Megale
9781250190499
Available May 7, 2019 from Wednesday Books
Ages 14 to 18

Eighteen-year-old Maeve is ready to lose her v-card. Unfortunately, her rare form of muscular dystrophy confines her to a wheelchair and means that most boys don’t give her a second look. But that doesn’t stop her from flirting with any hot guy that crosses her path, including Cole Stone, the hunky college-aged actor starring in the film she’s directing. Maeve and Cole’s interactions are increasingly flirtatious, beginning with coy innuendos between takes and soon leading to steamy text exchanges. But will Maeve’s physical limitations prevent them from going all the way? Not if she can help it.

Given the current political climate we hope that this catalog will be a helpful tool for identifying books that are culturally relevant and on the pulse of the public conversation.
