Becky Albertalli - Imogen, Obviously!

We're moving Valentine's Day. You heard us, February doesn't deserve such a lovey-dovey holiday. In fact, there's only one day that really, truly deserves Valentine's Day, and that day is May 7th. Why, you may ask? Because that's the day we're helping our lovely author-friend, Becky Albertalli, launch her new YA masterpiece, Imogen, Obviously, with Julian Winters and Kelly Quindlen! Would you be our Valentine and come help us celebrate this absolutely adorable book with all the romance (and candy and pink outfits) it deserves on May 7th at the Decatur Library?

Admission: $0 that's right, admission is free, but you still need to "purchase" a ticket for every person who plans to attend. Please reserve your space here!

You must purchase a copy of Imogen, Obviously from Little Shop of Stories in order to enter the signing line! Order your copy below!

About the book:

Imogen Scott may be hopelessly heterosexual, but she’s got the World’s Greatest Ally title locked down.

She's never missed a Pride Alliance meeting. She knows more about queer media discourse than her very queer little sister. She even has two queer best friends. There's Gretchen, a fellow high school senior, who helps keep Imogen's biases in check. And then there's Lili—newly out and newly thriving with a cool new squad of queer college friends.

Imogen's thrilled for Lili. Any ally would be. And now that she's finally visiting Lili on campus, she's bringing her ally A game. Any support Lili needs, Imogen's all in.

Even if that means bending the truth, just a little.

Like when Lili drops a tiny queer bombshell: she's told all her college friends that Imogen and Lili used to date. And none of them know that Imogen is a raging hetero—not even Lili’s best friend, Tessa.

Of course, the more time Imogen spends with chaotic, freckle-faced Tessa, the more she starts to wonder if her truth was ever all that straight to begin with. . .
