by Alice Oseman | Read by Billie Fulford-Brown, Elizabeth Schenk, Imogen Church
Published by Scholastic Audiobooks
Surely her first year of college will be when Georgia finally has a crush, gets kissed, falls in love…right?
New friends and old help the British teen find her true self and claim her identity as asexual/aromantic.
I recommended Loveless here on BooksYALove.
