Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry

Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry

By Joya Goffney
“Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry” by debut author Joya Goffney is a story of an overly enthusiastic list maker who is blackmailed into completing a to-do list of all her worst fears. It’s a heartfelt, tortured, contemporary YA high school romance. Fans of Jenny Han’s “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” and Kristina Forest’s “I Wanna Be Where You Are” will love the juicy secrets and leap-off-the-page sexual tension.
