From the bestselling author of Red, White and Royal Blue and One Last Stop comes a debut YA romantic comedy - perfect for fans of Heartstopper! Fierce, funny, and frank, Casey McQuiston’s I Kissed Shara Wheeler is about breaking the rules, getting messy, and finding love in unexpected places.
'[A] razor-sharp, intensely compassionate, subversive, sweet, electrifyingly romantic knockout of a book.' – Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda
A month before graduating from Willowgrove Christian Academy, the principal’s perfect daughter, prom queen Shara Wheeler, kisses Chloe Green and vanishes.
On a furious hunt for answers, Chloe discovers she’s not the only one Shara kissed. There’s also Smith, Shara’s long-time sweetheart, and Rory, Shara’s bad-boy neighbour with a crush. Thrown into an unlikely alliance, Chloe, Smith and Rory follow Shara’s trail of annoyingly cryptic clues, and Chloe starts to suspect that there might be more to this small town – and to Shara – than she thought.
Raise your hand if you've been personally victimised by this funny, weird, razor-sharp, intensely compassionate, subversive, sweet, electrifyingly romantic knockout of a book. Casey freaking McQuiston, you've done it again.'
Becky Albertalli, bestselling author of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda
