Description of this Book

Striking a perfect balance between heartfelt emotions and spot-on humor, this YA debut features a pop-culture enthusiast protagonist with an unforgettable voice sure to resonate with readers. Alice had her whole summer planned. Nonstop all-you-can-eat buffets while marathoning her favorite TV shows (best friends totally included) with the smallest dash of adulting--working at the library to pay her share of the rent. The only thing missing from her perfect plan? Her girlfriend (who ended things when Alice confessed she's asexual). Alice is done with dating--no thank you, do not pass go, stick a fork in her, done. But then Alice meets Takumi and she can't stop thinking about him or the rom com-grade romance feels she did not ask for (uncertainty, butterflies, and swoons, oh my!). When her blissful summer takes an unexpected turn and Takumi becomes her knight with a shiny library-employee badge (close enough), Alice has to decide if she's willing to risk their friendship for a love that might not be reciprocated--or understood. Claire Kann's young adult debut novel Let's Talk About Love, chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads, gracefully explores the struggle with emerging adulthood and the complicated line between friendship and what it might mean to be something more. Praise for Let's Talk About Love Alice is black, biromantic, and asexual, and her relationship with Takumi is genuine and fun. . . . A light, enjoyable asexual romance with outstanding representation. Recommended. --School Library Journal Debut novelist Kann thoughtfully tackles what it means to be asexual and gives Alice a platform to discover who she is and what it means for her relationship with Takumi. Asexual readers will appreciate the visibility, and those--like Alice's ex--who know poorly understand it, will gain a better sense of what love without sex can look like. --Publishers Weekly

A lovely book with very likable and diverse characters. Cutie Code: Cutest --Macy Filia, reader on SwoonReads.com I enjoy the character of Alice and love how different this story is from other novels as the main character is asexual. There aren't many novels that have asexual characters and it's something people need more of. --Alice, reader on SwoonReads.com This is a fantastic story!... I've never read a story quite like this one. --The Kindred Reader, reader on SwoonReads.com I need this published and I need it now.
