Our August Book of the Month

Jay’s Guide to Crushing It by Ruby Clyde

“Our Book of the Month for Teen readers is Jay’s Guide to Crushing It from own-voices author Ruby Clyde. 14-year-old Jay – sorry, Jennifer – and her family move to a new town for a fresh start after bullying at her last school went too far. Jennifer wants to keep her mum happy so gone are her jeans, t-shirts, skateboard and short hair and she’s following the plan to start looking and acting like a girl. But Jennifer soon starts to lead a double life, sneaking out to the local skatepark where she feels most like herself and can be Jay again. Here she gets tangled up in a crush with Alex, a closeted boy who thinks Jay is a boy too. But at school is her new friend Mina flirting with Jay…as a girl? It isn’t easy working out who you like when you’re still working out who you are.

This funny, big-hearted romantic comedy about a teen doing their best to fit in shows readers that sometimes finding yourself can be quite complicated! Author Ruby Clyde is a rising talent, best known as one half of the acclaimed comedy double act Shelf, and brings a fresh and unique voice to the forefront in this debut novel. Jay’s Guide to Crushing It softens difficult coming-out themes with whip-smart humour and is a perfect read for fans of Heartstopper, Felix Ever After, and Hani and Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating.”
