Summary: The story of a girl hoping she’s found a place to belong . . . only to learn that neither talent nor love is as straightforward as she thinks.

A summer away from the city is the beginning of everything for Brooklyn Shepard. Her theater apprenticeship at Allerdale is a chance to prove that she can carve out a niche all her own, surrounded by people who don’t know anything about her or her family of superstar performers.

Brooklyn immediately hits it off with her roommate, Zoe, and soon their friendship turns into something more. Brooklyn wants to see herself as someone who’s open to everything and everyone, but as her feelings for Zoe intensify, so do her doubts. She’s happier than she’s ever been—but is it because of her new relationship? Or is it because she’s finally discovering who she wants to be?


I love books that focus on self-discovery and acceptance.  I have a feeling this is going to be an amazing read, maybe kind of light and full of cuteness and new beginnings.  I loved Tell Me Again How A Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan, and I get the vibe that this one is going to be similarly upbeat and enjoyable, so I’m really looking forward to reading this one!  Look Both Ways has that heartwarming feeling to it, just by reading the synopsis, and it’s one of my most anticipated reads coming out this summer!

What do you think?  Is this a book you think you’d be interested in?

    I picked up an ARC of this one at ALA but haven’t read it. It does look good. I hope you enjoy it.

  2. I am very interested in reading this book! I saw it on Goodreads a few months ago, and I added it to my TBR as soon as I finished reading the synopsis. It looks like it’s going to be a cute and eye-opening read.

      It does sound really good, right? For some reason I haven’t seen too much about this book yet, which is odd because it sounds like something that’s going to amazing. I hope you enjoy it when you read it!

  3. Aw, this one seems absolutely adorable! <3 I also really love the cover. The juxtaposition of the girl's faces and their smiles just give me such warm feelings.
