If you're enamored by the behind-the-scenes world of television and/or in the mood for fun and sweet queer romance, then you won't want to miss it!
Sometimes you've got to live outside the lines.
Seventeen-year-old Bex is thrilled when she gets an internship on her favorite tv show, Silver Falls. Unfortunately, the internship isn't quite what she expected... instead of sitting in a crowded writer's room volleying ideas back and forth, Production Interns are stuck picking up the coffee.
Determined to prove her worth as a writer, Bex drafts her own script and shares it with the head writer—who promptly reworks it and passes it off as his own! Bex is understandably furious, yet... maybe this is just how the industry works? But when they rewrite her proudly lesbian character as straight, that's the last straw! It's time for Bex and her crush to fight back.
What people are saying about Going Off Script:
"A good story about fighting for representation in the media. Give to fans of Britta Lundin’s Ship It or Amy Spalding’s The Summer of Jordi Perez." —School Library Journal
"What I loved the most about Going Off Script was how Wilde is able to balance this summer romance with a discussion about being ashamed of our roots and chasing our dreams, with a discussion about homophobia, sexism, and privilege in the media business. ... A powerful book that tackles issues that you might come up against today. All while delivering a story with a lot of heart, perseverance, and compassion." —Utopia State of Mind
"A perfect balance of fandom, friendship, family, love and finding yourself and accepting who you are. ... If you’re looking for an amazing contemporary you don’t want to put down, definitely pick up Going Off Script!" —The Book Dutchesses
