Red Girl Blue Boy by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

I’ve seen other kids go through it all at school. So often, it’s the same thing. Person X likes Person Y. and what do you know, it turns out that Person Y likes Person X back. It’s a cery nice thing. It’s the way life should be. But then once all the other letters of the alphabet find out about it, they stick their noses into things… Whatever the case, whatever the reasons, relationships that might otherwise have lasted wind up foundering when all the other letters of the alphabet get involved.

“You know what they say the sign of an intelligent person is? It’s the ability to hold two seemingly conflicting thoughts in your mind at once.”
