Publisher's Summary

From the marvelous author of Heartstopper comes an exceptional YA novel about discovering that it's okay if you don't have sexual or romantic feelings for anyone...since there are plenty of other ways to find love and connection.

This is the funny, honest, messy, completely relatable story of Georgia, who doesn't understand why she can't crush and kiss and make out like her friends do. She's surrounded by the narrative that dating plus sex equals love. It's not until she gets to college that she discovers the A range of the LGBTQIA+ spectrum - coming to understand herself as asexual/aromantic. Disrupting the narrative that she's been told since birth isn't easy - there are many mistakes along the way to inviting people into a newly found articulation of an always - known part of your identity. But Georgia's determined to get her life right, with the help of (and despite the major drama of) her friends.

Dear Listener,

What do I hope listeners will get out of the audio experience of Loveless?
"My journey to writing Loveless began with the desire to write a story about platonic love in the same way writers often write about romantic love—like something magical, timeless, and world-changing. We live in a world where romance itself is romanticized. Everyone is expected to find their perfect person, fall in love, get married, and grow old together, and if you stray from that path, you've failed at life...right? What happens when that path is impossible for you? That is the question that Loveless's protagonist, 18-year-old Georgia, faces upon the discovery that she is most likely asexual and aromantic, meaning she does not experience attraction to any gender. But what she and Loveless's main characters learn is that despite all the love stories, the love songs, the expectations of their parents and society, and their own visions of their future, they can find love and joy elsewhere. I hope that Loveless will help readers to see that too—that you don't have to fall in love to find your happily ever after." – Alice Oseman, writer of Loveless

This is my favorite book

I was so excited for this book to get the US publication. It’s so nice to finally have representation. It’s such a fun story and extremely related as a person on the asexual spectrum. This is something I want to share with everyone.

The performances was great and fun. Never taking me out of the moment.

just so important for people who are aroace

as someone who is aromantic asexual, i cannot describe just how important this book was for me. i swear i cried so much because of this book (in a good way). i have been looking for so long for books or really any form of media that have an asexual main character and you know its not common. because of the rarity of an asexual main character, this book just meant the absolute world to me and i will be re-listening many times :)
