New York Times bestselling author Nic Stone (DEAR MARTIN) explores sexuality, friendship, first love, and more in her new novel, ODD ONE OUT (Crown BFYR), hailed as a “radiant masterpiece” by bestselling author Adam Silvera (They Both Die at the End). Told from three different points of view, ODD ONE OUT is already speaking to teenagers and adults across the country, as it addresses issues and topics at the forefront of many teenage minds and encourages readers to embrace and accept who they are, who they want to be, and who they love.

Courtney “Coop” Cooper and Jupiter Charity-Sanchez have been best friends forever. Courtney secretly wishes his best friend was more than just a friend, but Jupe has liked girls forever. Enter new girl Rae Chin, who catches the eye of both Coop and Jupiter . . . and discovers that she likes them both. One Story. Three Sides. No Easy Answers.

A rising voice in the YA literary community, Stone says that ODD ONE OUT is the novel she wishes she had while growing up. “When I became a writer,” says Stone, “I recognized an opportunity to show the world as it is and as I wish it to be. I realized I could give my characters, and therefore readers, something I didn’t have: a world where their questions and their desires—who they are and who they love—are perfectly okay.” ODD ONE OUT joins Stone’s debut novel, Dear Martin (now available in paperback), and continues the global dialogue about situations, feelings, and emotions familiar to teen and adult readers.
