Book Launch Event: "Blaine for the Win" by Robbie Couch, with Adam Silvera!

Join us to celebrate the release of Blaine for the Win with Robbie Couch & Adam Silvera on Tuesday, April 12th, 2022 at 7:30pm!

After being dumped so his boyfriend can pursue more "serious" guys, a teen boy decides to prove he can be serious, too, by running for senior class president in this joyful romp from the author of The Sky Blues.

High school junior Blaine Bowers has it all--the perfect boyfriend, a pretty sweet gig as a muralist for local Windy City businesses, a loving family, and awesome, talented friends. And he is absolutely, 100% positive that aforementioned perfect boyfriend--​senior student council president and Mr. Popular of Wicker West High School, Joey--is going to invite Blaine to spend spring break with his family in beautiful, sunny Cabo San Lucas.

Except Joey breaks up with him instead. In publicOn their one-year anniversary.

Because, according to Joey, Blaine is too goofy, too flighty, too...unserious. And if Joey wants to go far in life, he needs to start dating more serious guys. Guys like Zach Chesterton.

Determined to prove that Blaine can be what Joey wants, Blaine decides to enter the running to become his successor (and beat out Joey's new boyfriend, Zach) as senior student council president.

But is he willing to sacrifice everything he loves about himself to do it?
