Happy Release: Get It Together, Delilah! by Erin Gough

Get It Together, Delilah!
by Erin Gough
-LGBTQ, YA
Release date: April 4, 2017
Amazon | Goodreads

Seventeen-year-old Delilah Green wouldn't have chosen to do her last year of school this way, but she figures it's working fine. While her dad goes on a trip to fix his broken heart after her mom left him for another man, Del manages the family cafe. Easy, she thinks. But what about homework? Or the nasty posse of mean girls making her life hell? Or her best friend who won't stop guilt-tripping her? Or her other best friend who might go to jail for love if Del doesn't do something? But really, who cares about any of that when all Del can think about is beautiful Rosa who dances every night across the street. . . . Until one day Rosa comes in the cafe door. And if Rosa starts thinking about Del, too, then how in the name of caramel milkshakes will Del get the rest of it together?

I plan on reading my copy in June to celebrate Gay & Lesbian Pride Month.

  2. Lately I've been looking to find more LGBTQ novels. I've been trying to avoid strictly romance ones, if only because I want to be able to refer these novels to my kids and their friends so they can see characters they can relate to. They are all over 18, but just barely. So I'm not worried too much about smexy parts or anything. I just want it to be honest, real to life, etc. not just smexy parts with filler. So thanks for sharing this one. It's going on my list to pick up next month.
