Meet Cute Diary

Emery Lee

Noah Ramirez thinks he’s an expert on romance, writes a hugely popular blog, the Meet Cute Diary, a collection of trans happily ever afters….but he’s made it all up, the stories are fake. His fantasies of a trans boy afraid to step out of the closet has become a beacon of hope for trans readers across the globe.

Then a troll exposes the blog as fiction, Noah’s world unravels. He seeks a way to make the fiction real. He meets Drew who is willing to fake-date Noah to save the Diary. As they pose, real emotional connections start to grow and change the way things are supposed to be working out.

Author Emery Lee is tone perfect here, capturing all the tremulous expectations of young love, the pressures of being true and the hardship of honesty. Their narrative energy is boundless, the book leaps forward into unexpected places but keeping the main protagonists and their desire to be seen in full focus. This is a great book for younger Trans and nonbinary readers reassuring, validating and reminding us all that love is fully inclusive and first love is awkward and thrilling as hell and that sometimes we just need to have the courage of our convictions and take a wild leap into possibility.
