A stunning novel about being brave enough to be true to yourself, and learning to find joy even when times are unimaginably dark. Three days. Two girls. One life-changing music festival. Toni is grieving the loss of her roadie father and needing to figure out where her life will go from here - and she's desperate to get back to loving music.
Olivia is a hopeless romantic whose heart has just taken a beating (again) and is beginning to feel like she'll always be a square peg in a round hole - but the Farmland Music and Arts Festival is a chance to find a place where she fits. The two collide and it feels like something like kismet when a bond begins to form.
But when something goes wrong and the festival is sent into a panic, Olivia and Toni will find that they need each other (and music) more than they ever imagined. A joyous, Black girl rom-com about finding love and being true to yourself Explores the power of communal joy to bring people together, even in the most uncertain of times Leah Johnson's You Should See Me in a Crown was the very first YA pick for Reese Witherspoon's book club: '[A] super funny, joyful story that'll have you reliving your high school prom days!'
