Freyja, leader on her school’s Gay-Straight Alliance, is a politically active 17-year-old who has always identified as a lesbian. When her girlfriend breaks up with her, she is upset and has to distance herself from her ex and the pride video blog they created together. Freyja needs a new cause so she starts volunteering at the local food bank. There, she learns about food justice and begins to develop feelings for her male team leader, Sanjay. When Freyja is accused of “going-straight” she has to decide if she can reconcile with self-identifying as a bisexual and take a chance on love with Sanjay.

“[H]elp to broaden the range of experiences represented in the romance genre, moving beyond the white, heterosexual characters normally seen. This series is worth consideration in young adult collections.”—VOYA
