I thought I was nobody's teen crush, but turns out I was just missing the signs.
Zoe Kelly is starting a new phase of her life. High school was a mess of bullying and autistic masking that left her burnt out and shut down. Now, with an internship at an online media company--the first step on the road to her dream writing career--she is ready to reinvent herself. But she didn't count on returning to her awkward and all-too-recent high-school experiences for her first writing assignment.
When her piece, about her non-existent dating life, goes viral, eighteen-year-old Zoe is overwhelmed and more than a little surprised by the response. But, with a deadline and a list of romantic contenders from the past to reconnect with for her piece on dating, she is hoping one of her old sparks will turn into a new flame.
Social Queueis a funny and heart-warming autistic story about deciphering the confusing signals of attraction and navigating a path to love.
Kay Kerris a former journalist and community newspaper editor from Brisbane, now living on the Sunshine Coast with her husband and daughter and working as a freelance writer. Kay was writing Please Don't Hug Me, her debut novel, when she received her own autism-spectrum diagnosis.
'Kay Kerr is a skilful writer who deftly balances the serious and the light in this coming-of-age narrative...This is another exciting release in Australian young adult fiction that I can't wait to recommend to a host of sharp and curious minds.' Books+Publishingon Please Don't Hug Me
