She's never been kissed, but Lacey Burke is surprisingly informed about sex. A senior in high school, she's been happy playing her viola and planning her future in Boston with her two best friends, Theo and Evita, who have enough romantic drama for all three of them. But their school has an abstinence-only policy when it comes to sex education, and when Lacey begins an internship working with pregnant women, she sees exactly how harmful a policy like that can be. Determined to give her classmates the support d tools ey aren't getting, Lacey starts holding bathroom "office hours," where she dispenses condoms and safe-sex advice. Her mom may be behind her, but the school sure isn't, and to complicate things further, Lacey's starting to have feelings for Theo mething that could throw her whole friend group into chaos. Though YA sex education is incorporated more seamlessly into L. C. Rosen's Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) (2018), this is an inclusive, sex-positive romance with plenty of moxie. Have on hand for teens interested in exploring their options.
