From bestselling YA rom-com queen Becky Albertalli (author of Love, Simon) comes a new novel about daring to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight in love, life and theatre.
[PRINCIPAL CAST LIST] Kate Garfield Anderson WalkerBest friends, and contrary to popular belief, not co-dependent. Examples:Carpooling to and from theatre rehearsals? Environmentally sound and efficient. Consulting each other on every single life decision? Basic good judgment. Pining for the same guys from afar? Shared crushes are more fun anyway.
But when Kate and Andy’s latest long-distance crush shows up at their school, everything goes off-script.
Enter Stage Left: Matt OlssonHe is talented and sweet, and Kate likes him. She really likes him. The only problem? So does Anderson.

This one might even bring the curtains down on Kate and Anderson’s friendship… Praise for Becky Albertalli: ‘Heart-fluttering, honest and hilarious’ – Stephanie Perkins, author of Anna and the French Kiss’Touching and passionate… completely lovable with bags of empathy’ – The Observer’Wonderfully charismatic’ – Bookseller’Stunningly three-dimensional’ – Entertainment Weekly’Sharp and funny’ – Publishers Weekly’Funny, moving and emotionally wise’ – Kirkus Reviews’Timeless’ – Teen Vogue
