A people-pleasing bridesmaid-for-hire falls for the crushable new lesbian in town. Will she finally find her happily ever after-and her own voice? ONE OF BUZZFEED'SMOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2022 Amy, a semicloseted queer baker and bartender in mid-2010s Oklahoma, has spent a lifetime putting other people's needs before her own. Until, that is, she hits it off with Charley, a brilliant, attractive engineer who's just moved to Tulsa. Suddenly, Amy's found something-someone-she actually wants.

It's not until Amy's precarious balancing act strains her relationships to the breaking point that she must decide what it looks like to be true to herself-and if she has the courage to try.… (more)

between 3.5 and 4 stars. fun, charming, queer book that is less about the romance and more about the friendships and self discovery. i liked where the focus was here. (in fact, the main conflict is not in the romance, it's between the main character and her best friend! yes!) it's also unusual to set a book - especially a queer book - in oklahoma, when it's not about being gay in oklahoma in 2014. i mean it is, but it's about so much more than that. i really liked that this went into issues like religion and what gay marriage means to equal rights and the movement for equality in general. the debate about whether being a part of straight weddings is in some way harmful to progress in gay marriage. it was interesting and thoughtful and well done.

i liked spending time with amy and her friends (especially joel and damian) and while i don't feel like i knew charley all that well or understood why she couldn't have texted a few times, i didn't care all that much because the romance wasn't actually the main point here. community was and that shone through.

i enjoyed this and i'd read her again. ( )
