WE CONTAIN MULTITUDES: Jonathan Hopkirk and Adam “Kurl” Kurlansky are partnered in English class, writing letters to one another in a weekly pen pal assignment. With each letter, the two begin to develop a friendship that eventually grows into love. But with homophobia, bullying, and devastating family secrets, Jonathan and Kurl struggle to overcome their conflicts and hold onto their relationship…and each other.
AMELIA WESTLAKE WAS NEVER HERE:
Harriet is the perfect student: smart, dutiful, over-achieving. Will is a troublemaker. When a staff’s inappropriate behavior is swept under the rug, the unlikely duo reluctantly team up: pulling pranks and creating the legendary Amelia Westlake–an imaginary student who helps right the many wrongs of their privileged institution. But everyone wonders who is Amelia Westlake?–and between Harriet and Will, how long can they keep their secret? How far will they go to make a difference? And when will they realize they’re falling for each other?
