The queer YA rom-com follows Nozomi Takashi as she enacts her plan for a summer of reinvention, starting a fake-dating relationship with her new coworker Willow and embarking on shenanigans around San Francisco with her best friend Ruby. But no fauxmance survives the intrusion of real life—and real feelings—for long.

Publication is set for summer 2021.
