"Jay has been waiting his whole life to experience the same milestones his straight friends do in their small town in rural Washington: first date, first kiss, first make-out session, first everything! So when his family moves to Seattle and he finally gets to meet other queer teens, he sets out to cross every item off his to-do list, his Gay Agenda. This book was such a great comfort read, and I loved the tight knit, accepting, and warm world Jason June created for Jay and teen readers everywhere. JAY'S GAY AGENDA is a funny and charming coming-of-age story about love, sex, and friendship that will remind readers to embrace the little moments as much as the big "musts" on your bucket list."— Eugenia
From debut novelist Jason June comes a moving and hilarious sex-positive teen rom-com about the complexities of first loves, first hookups, and first heartbreaks--and how to stay true to yourself while embracing what you never saw coming, that's perfect for fans of Sandhya Menon and Becky Albertalli.
There's one thing Jay Collier knows for sure--he's a statistical anomaly as the only out gay kid in his small rural Washington town. While all his friends can't stop talking about their heterosexual hookups and relationships, Jay can only dream of his own firsts, compiling a romance to-do list of all the things he hopes to one day experience--his Gay Agenda.
Then, against all odds, Jay's family moves to Seattle and he starts his senior year at a new high school with a thriving LGBTQIA+ community. For the first time ever, Jay feels like he's found where he truly belongs. But as Jay begins crossing items off his list, he'll soon be torn between his heart and his hormones, his old friends and his new ones . . . because after all, life and love don't always go according to plan.
