A passionate and heartwarming tale of self-discovery and the power of music, inspired by the real-life experiences of Alice Oseman.


For fans of Heartstopper and Radio Silence, Alice Oseman returns with a deeply personal and emotional story about the power of music and the courage to be who you are.

Alyssa Chen is a talented musician who has her sights set on a career in the music industry. But when her family moves from London to a small village in the countryside, Alyssa feels like her dreams are fading away.

To make matters worse, Alyssa is also struggling with her identity. She's attracted to girls, but she's never felt comfortable expressing her feelings. When she meets Lily, a fellow musician and fellow misfit, Alyssa finally feels like she's found someone who understands her.

As Alyssa and Lily's friendship deepens, Alyssa starts to question everything she thought she knew about herself. She's determined to find her voice, both as a musician and as a person, and she knows that she has to do it on her own terms.
