"Dumplin' meets Othello in this brash, bold and tender #ownvoices novel about a girl whose surprise part in a hip-hopera high school production of Othello leads to a journey of self-empowerment, perfect for fans of Julie Murphy, Ibi Zoboi, and Nic Stone."

— From Young Adult


Refreshingly authentic and bold... Don't miss this smashing #ownvoices novel from Francina Simone, filled with heart, humor and a heroine to root for

Olivia "Liv" James is done with letting her insecurities get the best of her. So she does what any self-respecting hot mess of a girl who wants to SMASH junior year does...

After Liv shows up to a Halloween party in khaki shorts--why, God, why?--she decides to set aside her wack AF ways. She makes a list--a F*ck-It list.

1. Be bold--do the thing that scares me.

2. Learn to take a compliment.

3. Stand out instead of back.

She kicks it off by trying out for the school musical, saying yes to a date and making new friends. Life is great when you stop punking yourself However, with change comes a lot of missteps, and being bold means following her heart. So what happens when Liv's heart is interested in three different guys--and two of them are her best friends? What is she supposed to do when she gets dumped by a guy she's not even dating? How does one Smash It after the humiliation of being friend-zoned?

In Liv's own words, "F*ck it. What's the worst that can happen?"

A lot, apparently.
