Description

A companion novel to the bestselling and NBA-longlisted Last Night at the Telegraph Club, set in Marin County in 2013, during the summer the Supreme Court overturned California’s law forbidding gay marriage.Aria Tang West had big plans for her summer before MIT. Then an ill-advised party hookup with a forgettable boy ends with nonconsensual topless pictures on Tumblr, and Aria quickly finds her invitation to Cape Cod retracted and her flight to Marin County to stay with grandmother booked. But the summer of 2013 in the Bay is a momentous one—for Aria, for the working-class queer community she finds herself in, and for her artist grandmother. It’s the kind of summer that changes a life’s trajectory forever.
 
Set against the backdrop of the first of the major Supreme Court decisions that brought marriage equality to the United States, Aria’s coming-of-age story is deftly entwined with a poignant note of closure for Lily and Kath from Last Night at the Telegraph Club.  Malinda Lo is the bestselling and critically acclaimed author of several young adult novels, including most recently Last Night at the Telegraph Club. Her novel Ash, a lesbian retelling of Cinderella, was a finalist for the William C. Morris YA Debut Award, the Andre Norton Award for YA Science Fiction and Fantasy, the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award, and was a Kirkus Best Book for Children and Teens. She has been a three-time finalist for the Lambda Literary Award. Malinda’s nonfiction has been published by the New York Times Book Review, NPR, the Huffington Post, The Toast, the Horn Book, and in many anthologies. She lives in Massachusetts with her wife. CA
