When your heart can't speak the words, a mix-tape can.
Tia Mercury is a freshman in high school and has her first serious crush...on a senior who won't touch her. At least not until she turns eighteen.
Clinton Daniels is not your everyday teenage boy, and because his tougher-than-nails father won't let him forget it, Clinton becomes a loner. And learns to distrust everyone.
Until he meets Tia. She's sweet, she's funny, and she knows nothing about good music. It's the nineteen-eighties for goodness sake...time to turn off that AM radio crap.
So, while Tia drools over Clinton, he's busy making her mix-tapes. She's falling in love. He's ignoring his heart.
See, Clinton has a secret. But sharing it could cost him their friendship, and he's not willing to risk losing the only person he's ever loved.
Love Me Anyway is a serious story that spans a decade. A young adult, coming of age tale about unconditional love and what two people are willing to look past to prove that love. A mix between Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park and Becky Albertalli's Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, Love Me Anyway will capture your heart and captivate your soul.
