The big day is finally here!!! Let's Talk About Love by Claire Kann is taking its rightful place on the shelves today, and we are positively dancing with glee that the world will finally get to read this amazing book!

Alice is about to ace this whole dating thing.

Alice had her whole summer planned. Non-stop all-you-can-eat buffets while marathoning her favorite TV shows (best friends totally included) with the smallest dash of adulting—working at the library to pay her share of the rent. The only thing missing from her plan? Her girlfriend (who ended things when Alice told her she's asexual). Alice is done with dating—no thank you, do not pass go, stick a fork in her, done.

But then Alice meets Takumi and she can’t stop thinking about him or the rom com-grade romance feels she did not ask for (uncertainty, butterflies, and swoons, oh my!).

When her blissful summer takes an unexpected turn and Takumi becomes her knight with a shiny library employee badge (close enough), Alice has to decide if she’s willing to risk their friendship for a love that might not be reciprocated—or understood.

What people are saying about Let's Talk About Love:

"A timely, nuanced, and diverse debut." —Booklist

"Debut novelist Kann thoughtfully tackles what it means to be asexual and gives Alice a platform to discover who she is and what it means for her relationship with Takumi. Asexual readers will appreciate the visibility, and those—like Alice’s ex—who know [they] poorly understand it, will gain a better sense of what love without sex can look like." —Publishers Weekly

"I’m in need of a setting to give this novel 6 out of 5 stars because holy crap y’all, this novel changed my life. . . . I can’t even express to you all what it felt like to see the words 'biromantic asexual' in an actual book. I don’t have the ability to express what representation like that for the first time ever means. So you’ll have to see it for yourself by reading the novel." —Kav, Goodreads reviewer

"Entertaining, endearing, and perfectly bittersweet. . . . A heartfelt book full of hope, featuring a diverse cast of characters that go through some hard times but can still have fun and laugh." —Filia Macy, Goodreads reviewer
