Staff Reviews


Filipe was looking forward to a school break filled with Netflix binging and free of other kids. His plans are put in jeopardy when he finds out Caio, his crush, will be spending the break sleeping at Filipe’s apartment. This brings up a whole host of anxieties and insecurities Filipe was hoping to avoid. As the days go by Filipe has to learn how to simply be with another person.
This is a deeply heartfelt book that chronicles one young man’s struggle with self-worth. I enjoyed the open, sometimes cringy, look into 2 weeks of Filipe’s life.

Description


"I read this in one sitting, laughing out loud and cheering for Felipe to follow his heart. I love this book!" --Rainbow Rowell, New York Times bestselling author of Carry On and Wayward Son





Felipe can't wait for winter break: Finally, he'll get some time away from the classmates who tease him incessantly about his weight.



But Felipe's plan turns upside down when he learns that Caio, his neighbor from apartment 57, will be staying with him for fifteen days. Which is a problem because (a) Felipe has had a crush on Caio since, well, forever; and (b) Felipe has a list of body image insecurities and absolutely NO idea how he's going to handle them while sharing a room with his lifelong crush.



Suddenly, the days that once promised rest and relaxation (not to mention some epic Netflix bingeing) are a gauntlet of every unresolved issue in Felipe's life. But if he can overcome his insecurities, then maybe -- just maybe -- this break won't turn out to be such a disaster after all . . .
