Around the time that Freya loses her voice while recording her debut album, Harun is making plans to run away from home to find the boy that he loves, and Nathaniel is arriving in New York City after a family tragedy leaves him isolated on the outskirts of Washington state. After the three of them collide in Central Park, they slowly reveal the parts of their past that they haven't been able to confront, and together, they find their way back to who they're supposed to be.

Told over the course of a single day from three different perspectives, this is a story about the power of friendship and being true to who you are.

One of Gayle's Best Empathy-Delivery Devices Yet!


Trigger Warnings for mental health, abandonment, suicide, and homophobia. Told from all three perspectives, this is a story of love, friendship and discovering who you really are. They each feel invisible in their own way. They all feel alone in their lives, whether they're surrounded by adoring fans, a large family or no one at all. Their stories shine a light on the lengths we can go to in order to try to fit into the mould that others have created for us when we know deep down our shape looks nothing like that of the mould. Freya, Nathaniel and Harun share one fear: 'if people knew the truth about me I would truly be alone' so they hide parts of themselves from the world. I don't know about you but this aching loneliness resonated with me. Regardless of the overall theme I get sucked into Gayle's story almost immediately, generally by the end of the first page. There's at once a simplicity and complexity to her writing; easy to read yet with a depth you fall into without realising. I fall in love with her characters, idiosyncrasies and all, and find myself thinking about them long after I finish reading their stories. They have the ability to change me from the inside out. Best Description of Books Ever: "little empathy-delivery devices". 💕 Thank you so much to NetGalley and Simon & Schuster (Australia) for reminding me why I love everything Gayle writes.
