YA FICTION-Contemporary, LGBTQ+ Fiction
Eighteen-year-olds Ruben Montez and Zach Knight are two members of the boy-band Saturday, one of the biggest acts in America. Along with their bandmates, Angel Phan and Jon Braxton, the four are teen heartbreakers in front of the cameras and best friends backstage.
On a whirlwind tour through Europe, with both an unrelenting schedule and minimal supervision, Ruben and Zach come to rely on each other more and more, and their already close friendship evolves into a romance. But when they decide they’re ready to tell their fans and live freely, they start to truly realize that they will never have the support of their management. How can they hold tight to each other when the whole world seems to want to come between them?
“If This Gets Out is an absolute showstopper! Equal parts edgy and adorable, this bright, joyful book has everything I look for in a queer YA romance.” —Phil Stamper, bestselling author of The Gravity of Us
A BOY BAND ?!! Yes, please!! The only other boy band book I’ve read so far was Super Fake Love Song by David Yoon. This book was such a fun, quirky romance. I’ve read Sophie’s other book and I’m also reading this one for the IG book club, Love, Arctually and for the Turning the Pages tour. I would have liked to see more scenes of the tour that they go on and the countries that they visit. The boy band reminds me a bit of One Direction, but there’s no actual reference to them. It had a slow start, but it picks up!! This is perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera.
