Talked about presence on the contemporary young adult scene Alice Oseman presents a character insecure about her lack of involvement or interest in the world of romance. The character tries to change this at university, but can she, and should she?
It was all sinking in. I’d never had a crush on anyone. No boys, no girls, not a single person I had ever met. What did that mean?
Georgia has never been in love, never kissed anyone, never even had a crush – but as a fanfic-obsessed romantic she’s sure she’ll find her person one day.
As she starts university with her best friends, Pip and Jason, in a whole new town far from home, Georgia’s ready to find romance, and with her outgoing roommate on her side and a place in the Shakespeare Society, her ‘teenage dream’ is in sight.
But when her romance plan wreaks havoc amongst her friends, Georgia ends up in her own comedy of errors, and she starts to question why love seems so easy for other people but not for her. With new terms thrown at her – asexual, aromantic – Georgia is more uncertain about her feelings than ever.
Is she destined to remain loveless? Or has she been looking for the wrong thing all along?
This wise, warm and witty story of identity and self-acceptance sees Alice Oseman on towering form as Georgia and her friends discover that true love isn’t limited to romance.

The best queer book I've read so far!
It reflects so many of my experiences and feelings as an aromantic person. I recommend it to everyone who is on the aro/ace spectrum or who wants to understand us better.
The story reflects on a lot of our struggles with finding ourselfs and comming to term with who we are. The author is aromantic and asexuel herself and did an amazing job of creating good representation for us.
