18-year-old Georgia is about to start college and has never been in love. Sure, she’s read and fantasized about it, but real-life love? – Nowhere in sight. And so Georgia sets out on the college adventure of figuring out who she is and what she’s actually looking for. When she comes across the terms asexual and aromantic, her confusion grows. Does that mean love isn’t in the books for her? What if she’s been searching for the wrong kind of love all this time?

This novel sheds light on many topics that are extremely relevant yet often not sufficiently discussed in the classroom. Whether it be feeling pressure around not having had your first kiss yet at *insert age*, or not feeling the “right” romantic feelings, Loveless tells a beautiful story of self-acceptance. After all, since when has love been limited to romance?
