Meg & Linus
Can friendship, Star Trek, drama club, and a whole lot of coffee get two nerdy best friends through the beginning of their senior year of high school?
"Friendship . . . is the crux of the story and it's what will stay with you long after the book is done. Meg & Linus is ultimately a lighthearted, low angst look at holding onto friends and growing up. . . . It's exactly the sort of relevant and positive portrayal that is needed." -- Teen Vogue
Meg and Linus are best friends bound by a shared love of school, a coffee obsession, and being queer. It's not always easy to be the nerdy lesbian or gay kid in a suburban town. But they have each other. And a few Star Trek boxed sets. They're pretty happy.
But then Sophia, Meg's longtime girlfriend, breaks up with Meg. Linus starts tutoring the totally dreamy new kid, Danny--and Meg thinks setting them up is the perfect project to distract herself from her own heartbreak. But Linus isn't so sure Danny even likes guys, and maybe Sophia isn't quite as out of the picture as Meg thought she was. . . .
Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads, Meg & Linus by Hanna Nowinski is a fun friendship story about two quirky teens who must learn to get out of their comfort zones and take risks--even if that means joining the drama club, making new friends, and learning how to stand on your own.
Praise for Meg & Linus : "Told in short chapters with alternating points of view, Meg & Linus is a story of friendship, stable families, and sweet romance. The fact that the protagonist and supporting characters are gay is a nonissue, which makes this a refreshing read." -- VOYA
"Readers experience [Meg's] pain and Linus' uncertainties as the story moves back and forth between their respective perspectives. . . . this is one of the rare LGBTQ books to feature both a gay boy and a lesbian who are friends." -- Booklist
