Author Of 'Just Juliet' Devotes New Book To Suicide Prevention

LGBTQ YA novelist gets behind The Trevor Project with 'Loving Lakyn.'


Author Charlotte Reagan

From the young author who brought us the stunning debut novel, Just Juliet, featuring a compelling story of female high school seniors falling in love, comes the powerful sequel, Loving Lakyn.


Lakyn James is 16 years old and hating every second of it. He was supposed to be done, he'd tapped out. End of story, unsubscribe here. Suicide "attempt," they said. His intentions had no "attempt" in them. Re-entering normal life after ‘trying’ to take his own is weird. Especially when the world keeps going like it never happened. He still has to eat breakfast, go to school, and somehow convince a cute boy that he’s too damaged to date. Scott White comes with his own problems, namely a habit of drinking too much and being indecisive about rather he wants in the closet, or out of it. Lakyn can’t stand him; he also can’t help smiling when Scott’s around. Unfortunately—or fortunately—for Lakyn, life has decided to give him a second chance. He's not happy about it, but maybe, with a lot of hard work and a good therapist, he can learn to be. And maybe he can hold Scott’s hand at the same time.
No promises though.


Loving Lakyn makes a great gift for someone you know who is going through their first love and struggling with their sexuality, identity, and social pressures. Best of all, purchase of the book will contribute to the cause of LGBTQ suicide prevention for a 1-month pre-order period.


During October 19 to November 19, $1 from every copy sold will be donated to The Trevor Project.
