The Summer of Jordi Perez with Amy Spalding

Amy Spalding’s fifth YA novel, The Summer Jordi Perez (and the Best Burger in Los Angeles), is an absolute treat! It’s funny, charming, emotional, and has all of the thrilling make-out sessions you’d want from a YA book… and the kicker? The hero is a young queer woman. Amy Spalding delights us as we talk about the genesis of the book, growing up queer, and the complexities of writing Women of Size.
