If This Gets Out
“If This Gets Out is an absolute showstopper! Equal parts edgy and adorable, this bright, joyful book has everything I look for in a queer YA romance.” —Phil Stamper, bestselling author of The Gravity of Us
Eighteen-year-olds Ruben Montez and Zach Knight are two members of the boy-band Saturday, one of the biggest acts in America. Along with their bandmates, Angel Phan and Jon Braxton, the four are teen heartbreakers in front of the cameras and best friends backstage. But privately, cracks are starting to form: their once-easy rapport is straining under the pressures of fame, and Ruben confides in Zach that he’s feeling smothered by management’s pressure to stay in the closet.
On a whirlwind tour through Europe, with both an unrelenting schedule and minimal supervision, Ruben and Zach come to rely on each other more and more, and their already close friendship evolves into a romance. But when they decide they’re ready to tell their fans and live freely, Zach and Ruben start to truly realize that they will never have the support of their management. How can they hold tight to each other when the whole world seems to want to come between them?

More praise for IF THIS GETS OUT:
“[A] sweet and swoon-worthy romance. Zach and Ruben are a pitch-perfect duet!” —Caleb Roehrig, author of Last Seen Leaving
"Off The Record is the perfect book for anyone who has ever fantasized about stardom in a mega hit band--so, all of us. It deftly explores the dark side of fame, the difficulty of finding yourself when the whole world is watching, the perilousness and importance of both family and found family, and the giddy thrill of first--and forbidden--love. A funny, escapist read that manages to be both a fantasy and a soberingly real look at life, art, and love in the international spotlight." — Mackenzi Lee, bestselling author of The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue
“Dazzle[s]...with a narrative of queer boy-bandmates who wrestle with newfound fame, and newfound feelings for each other. Readers will fall in love.” —Adam Sass, author of Surrender Your Sons
"If This Gets Out blends the ache and the beauty of coming out under the lights of celebrity with the ways in which queer love is told to stay hidden, even when it's the only thing keeping the music going." —L.C. Rosen, author of Camp and Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts)
