Today, I’m sharing something about one of the books that I’ve read recently.
We all know (if you follow me on instagram or twitter) that I love George Lester. He’s a doll. He’s brilliant. He’s talented. He’s funny. He’s just an all round brilliant bloody human.
For those who don’t know, George has a book coming out in August (let me tell you, it’s bloody brilliant!). It’s called Boy Queen and today, I thought I’d share with you my moodboard. Just to give you a taster of the book. Just to get you excited about it so that you maybe go out and preorder it (because 100% you should).
“Robin Cooper’s life is falling apart. While his friends prepare to head off to University, Robin is looking at a pile of rejection letters from drama schools up and down the country, and facing a future without the people he loves the most. Everything seems like it’s ending, and Robin is scrabbling to find his feet. Unsure about what to do next and whether he has the talent to follow his dreams, he and his best friends go and drown their sorrows at a local drag show, where Robin realises there might be a different, more sequinned path for him…
With a mother who won’t stop talking, a boyfriend who won’t acknowledge him and a best friend who is dying to cover him in glitter make up, there’s only one thing for Robin to do: bring it to the runway.”
(3 stars for anyone who knows which drag queen that is in the bottom right)
Boy Queen isn’t out til August, but you can preorder it today. Suport your local indie bookshop if you have one (if you don’t, can I suggest Big Green Bookshop on twitter? They’re brilliant) or you can preorder on the links below:
(I’m not being paid or asked to do this, I just think everyone should be buying this book because it filled me with SHEER DELIGHT).
Right, I’m off to finish writing reports.
