A Bestselling Author
Liz Lighty has always believed she's too Black, too poor, too awkward to shine in her small Midwestern town. But Liz has a plan: attend Pennington College and become a doctor. But when financial aid falls through, Liz's plans come crashing down . . . until she's reminded of her school's scholarship for prom queen. There's nothing Liz wants to do less than endure social-media trolls, catty competitors, and humiliating public events. The only thing that makes it bearable is Mack. She's smart, funny, and just as much of an outsider as Liz. But Mack is also in the running for queen. Will falling for the competition keep Liz from her dreams . . . or make them come true?
