Author Charlotte Reagan

LGBTQ YA novelist gets behind The Trevor Project with ‘Loving Lakyn.’

From the young author who brought us the stunning debut novel, Just Juliet, featuring a compelling story of female high school seniors falling in love, comes the powerful sequel, Loving Lakyn.

Lakyn James is 16 years old and hates every second of it. He was supposed to be done, he’d tapped out. End of story, unsubscribe here. Suicide “attempt,” they said.

His intentions had no “attempt” in them. Re-entering everyday life after ‘trying’ to take his own is weird.

Especially when the world keeps going like it never happened. He still has to eat breakfast, go to school, and somehow convince a cute boy that he’s too damaged to date.

Scott White comes with his problems, namely a habit of drinking too much and being indecisive about whether he wants to be in the closet or out of it.

Author Lakyn can’t stand him; he also can’t help smiling when Scott’s around. Unfortunately—or fortunately—for Lakyn, life has decided to give him a second chance. He’s not happy about it, but maybe he can learn to be with a lot of hard work and a good therapist. And maybe he can hold Scott’s hand at the same time.
No promises, though.

Loving Lakyn makes a great gift for someone you know who is going through their first love and struggling with their sexuality, identity, and social pressures.

Best of all, the purchase of the book will contribute to the cause of LGBTQ suicide prevention for a 1-month pre-order period.
