"Strong characterisation and warm emotional depth mark out this uplifting YA debut." Guardian

What if Romeo & Juliet took place in Memphis in 2022?

Ray has no time for romance. She's queen of the roller rink, she writes found poetry, and she's got her eyes set on her own independent future. Besides, she's seen what loving someone too much - and losing them - can do to a person.

Orion, on the other hand, would like to be smooth with the girls. Just once. He looks like the jock his father wants him to be, but really he's a hopeless romantic. When he spots Ray at the rink, it feels like the stars have aligned.

But now it seems like something in their families' past will stand in their way, and cross their stars forever...

An honest, unpredictable, funny and heartbreaking dual-POV love story to fall head over heels for.

An emotional debut that celebrates the joy that comes from healing. * Kirkus Reviews * An uplifting and tender debut celebrating first love and the joy that comes from healing that fans of Angie Thomas and Jandy Nelson would relish. * The School Librarian * A sparkling debut!
