Everyone Wants to Know

13 June, 2023

An Asian American young woman is standing with a slight smile. Her hair is shoulder length and she's wearing a light pink t-shirt that ends just above the waistband of her jeans. There is a blonde young man standing back to back with her. He is about a foot taller. The back ground is a mix of many photos all in peach and pinks like through a filter. One shows a road sign to Waco. Others show people smiling in posed photos and one shows part of an article. Another shows someone whispering into an ear and the one at the top shows two people sitting at a beach looking out at the water.Everyone Wants to Know by Kelly Loy Gilbert
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

This ripped-from-the-tabloids young adult drama by the critically acclaimed author Kelly Loy Gilbert about a girl’s famous-for-being-famous family fracturing from within as their dirty laundry gets exposed.

The Lo family sticks together. That’s what Honor has been told her whole life while growing up in the glare of the public eye on Lo and Behold , the reality show about her, her four siblings, and their parents.

Their show may be off the air, but the Lo family members still live in the spotlight as influencers churning out podcasts, bestselling books, and brand partnerships. So when Honor’s father announces that he’s moving out of their northern California home to rent an apartment in Brooklyn, Honor’s personal upset becomes the internet’s trending B-list celebrity trainwreck—threatening the aspirational image the Los’ brand (and livelihood) depends on.

After one of her best friends leaks their private conversation to a gossip site, bruised and betrayed Honor pours all her energy into reuniting her family. With her parents 3,000 miles apart, her siblings torn into factions, and all of them under claustrophobic public scrutiny, this is easier said than done. Just when Honor feels at her lowest, a guarded yet vulnerable boy named Caden comes into her life and makes her want something beyond the tight Lo inner circle for the first time. But is it fair to open her heart to someone new when the people she loves are teetering on the edge of ruin?

As increasingly terrible secrets come to light about the people Honor thought she knew best in the world, she’s forced to choose between loyalty to her family and fighting for the life she wants. — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
