*POSTPONED* ZAN ROMANOFF reads from her new YA novel LOOK
 

Look (Dial Books)

**PLEASE NOTE: Due to public health concerns, Skylight Books is canceling all events for the remainder of March. Please write to events@skylightbooks.com with questions.

Things Lulu Shapiro's 5,000 Flash followers don't know about her:
  •  That the video of her with another girl was never supposed to go public.
  •  That Owen definitely wasn't supposed to break up with her because of it.
  •  That behind the carefully crafted selfies and scenes Lulu projects onto people's screens, her life feels like a terrible, uncertain mess.

Then Lulu meets Cass. Cass isn't interested in looking at Lulu's life, only in living in it. And The Hotel--a gorgeous space with an intriguing, Old Hollywood history and a trust-fund kid to restore it--seems like the perfect, secret place for them to get to know each other. But just because Lulu has stepped out of the spotlight doesn't mean it'll stop following her every move.

Look is about what you present vs. who you really are, about real intimacy and manufactured intimacy and the blurring of that line. It's a deceptively glamorous, feminist, emotionally complex, utterly compelling, queer coming-of-age novel about falling in love and taking ownership of your own self--your whole self--in the age of social media.

"Gorgeous." --Robin Benway, author of Far From the Tree

"A complex, empathic examination of identity." --Amy Spalding, author of The Summer of Jordi Perez

"[For] readers of Nina LaCour...Sharply incisive and...deeply romantic." --Booklist

"A beautiful, intimate novel. I loved it so much." --Maurene Goo, author of The Way You Make Me Feel
