內容簡介 A Finalist for the PEN Faulkner Award for FictionAn InStyle Best Book of the YearA Refinery29 Best Book of the Year By the end of high school, Bunny Lampert is 6'3 with the abs of a ninja turtle and the face of a boy angel. Her dad has chaotic salesman energy and her mom is dead. But from the outside, Bunny seems to have it all⁠--she's blonde, rich, and an Olympic volleyball hopeful. Michael⁠⁠--who has a ponytail and a septum piercing, works at Rite-Aid, and has a secret Grindr⁠--lives with his aunt in the cramped cottage next door to Bunny's McMansion. When Bunny catches Michael smoking in her yard, he discovers that her life is not as perfect as it seems. Their friendship is as improbable as it is irresistible, but when Michael falls in love for the first time, a vicious strain of gossip circulates and a terrible, brutal act becomes the defining feature of both his and Bunny's futures⁠⁠. A beautiful and darkly comic book about doing things you didn't mean to do, wanting things you wish you didn't want, and loving people you can't afford to love.
