FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF NEED AND CAPTIVATE People keep changing who they are & defining themselves by their own choices, and that’s cool most of the time, but not all the time. No, it’s not cool all the time at all. Belle is closing in on her last few months of high school and things are much better than they were before. Well, almost. Belle’s not too sure about all the sureness that other people seem to have about things like labels (popular, slut, jock), change (college, real adulthood, new friends, lost friends), and love (oh yeah, that). Not to mention, there’s THE BIG PROBLEM with Tom and other-well, unexpected-surprises. If you want to read more about Belle, check out Tips on Having a Gay (ex) Boyfriend from Flux. Praise for Tips on Having a Gay (ex) Boyfriend “From the first sentence of Carrie Jones’ novel, I could tell that here was a bright new writer who was going to set the world of young adult letters aflame.” -Kathi Appelt, award-winning poet and author “Provocative…The author’s poetic prose ably captures her heroine’s emotional upheavals.” -Publishers Weekly “Jones offers an atypical perspective of the coming-out story by legitimizing the love that is not lost, but changed, when young people grow up and apart.” -School Library Journal
