‘A stunning story about finding love, friendship, and yourself. This book is pure, brilliant joy!’ Beth Reekles, bestselling author of The Kissing Booth

 ‘The fat, nerdy book of my dreams. A beautiful reminder that if you’ve ever felt like an ‘other,’ there is still space for you at the table’ Crystal Maldonado, award-winning author of Fat Chance, Charlie Vega

Seventeen-year-old Hollis Beckwith is on a quest to conquer the world of tabletop gaming. But her boyfriend’s ‘No Girlfriends at the Table’ rule means that Hollis will have to find her own group if she wants to join in.

Enter Gloria Castañeda and her all-girls game of S&S! Crowded at the table in Gloria’s apartment, Hollis finds unexpected friendships and epic adventures. With her character as armour, Hollis starts to believe that maybe she can be more than just fat, anxious and a little lost.

When an in-game crush develops between Hollis’s character and the bard played by cool, charismatic Aini Amin Shaw, the lines between the game and reality start to blur-and Hollis is left with a choice: keep pretending, or roll the dice on love.
