Growing up in Texas's Rio Grande Valley, Maggie Gonzalez has a great family, a goofy group of friends, and dreams of being a photographer. But when she's tasked with picking an escort for her little sister's quinceañera, Maggie has to face the truth: that her feelings about her friends--and her future--aren't as simple as she'd once believed. As Maggie's search for the perfect escort continues, she's forced to confront new (and old) feelings for three of her friends: Amanda, her best friend and first-ever crush; Matthew, her ex-boyfriend twice-over who refuses to stop flirting with her; and Dani, the new girl who has romantic baggage of her own. As the weeks wind down and the boundaries between friendship and love become hazy, Maggie finds herself more and more confused, and soon, she must figure out how to avoid certain disaster--or be brave enough to dive right into it.

Maggie’s up against a deadline as part of fittings and preparations for her sister’s quinceañera, but choosing an escort is compounded by romantic feelings that pull her in three directions: toward her best friend Amanda, toward her former boyfriend Matthew, and toward Dani, a new girl at school.
To help navigate her feelings while fulfilling a class assignment, Maggie creates a private Instagram account, where she expresses her feelings about Amanda, Matthew, and Dani through her words and her photography. (The “Bisexual Disaster” of the title refers to the user name that Maggie gives to her private Instagram account.)
Along the way, Maggie begins to question a future she thought she’d had all mapped out, which is studying at New York University to be a music photographer.
I enjoyed this book, and thought Maggie’s feelings were fully realized toward each of her potential escorts. I anticipate that readers will be able to relate to her experiences.
One of the things I appreciate about this book is its non-explicit storyline. There’s some kissing, and there’s emotional closeness between Maggie and the people she cares about, but the absence of further intimate contact opens this book to a wider range among Young Adult readership.
Just Your Local Bisexual Disaster will be published on May 24 by Feiwel & Friends / Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group. I read a digital ARC of this book through Publishers Weekly’s Grab-a-Galley sweepstakes for Spring 2022, fulfilled through the NetGalley platform.
