ODD ONE OUT
Young Adult, Crown (USA), 2018
Courtney "Coop" Cooper: Dumped. Again. And normally I wouldn't mind. But right now, my best friend and source of solace, Jupiter Sanchez, is ignoring me to text some girl.
Rae Evelyn Chin: I assumed "new girl" would be synonymous with 'pariah', but Jupiter and Courtney make me feel like I'm right where I belong. I also want to kiss him. And her. Which is... perplexing.
Jupiter Charity-Sanchez: The only thing worse than losing the girl you love to a boy is losing her to your boy. That means losing him too. I have to make a move...
No easy answers.
ODD ONE OUT is written in three novellas, and it’s the kind of book that Nic wished she’d had around when she was trying to figure out who it was okay to love.
