Faking the best summer ever is a lot harder than it looks...

At the start of summer, Jack and Nate find themselves dumped

as their respective exes, Dylan and Tariq, start

up a new relationship together. Not only that, their exes start posting

pics on social media, showing the whole world how fabulous

their new life together is!

Jack and Nate are reeling. Not to be outdone,

they decide to create their own 'highlights reel' and show their

exes that they're having an even better time.

But between the depressing motorway service station motels, damp

campsites, and an ultimate showdown with the exes, something epic

really is happening: Jack and Nate

are learning to get over their heartache and open

themselves up to new possibilities for love.

A hilarious story of heartbreaks and hijinks from award-winning

author Simon James Green.

One of the UK's leading writers of LGBTQ+ teen fiction, Simon
