'[One of] the LGBTQ books that will change the literary landscape.' --O Magazine
What Lulu Shapiro's 5,000 Flash followers don't know:
• The video of her with another girl was never supposed to go public.
• Owen definitely wasn't supposed to break up with her because of it.
• Behind the online persona Lulu painstakingly curates, her life feels like a terrible, uncertain mess.
Then Lulu meets Cass. Cass isn't interested in looking at Lulu's life, only in living in it for real. And The Hotel--a gorgeous space with an intriguing, Old Hollywood history--seems like the perfect hideaway for their deepening romance. But just because Lulu has stepped out of the spotlight doesn't mean it'll stop following her every move.
Look is about what you present vs. who you really are, about real and manufactured intimacy and the blurring of that line. It's a deceptively glamorous, utterly compelling, beautifully written, queer coming-of-age novel about falling in love and taking ownership of your own self--your whole self--in the age of social media.
