Lark & ​​Kasim Start a Revolution

September 27

Two Black people are holding hands. One has cotton candy pink fluffy hair and is wearing jeans and a white t-shirt with a sun shining on it. The other is wearing dark blue shorts and a matching shirt. That person has dark close cropped hair with gold locks or twists. They are both smiling. The word Lark is also gold and the world Kasim is written in pink letters. Lark & ​​Kasim Start a Revolution by Kacen Callender
Abrams

Lark Winters wants to be a writer, and for now that means posting on their social media accounts––anything to build their platform. When former best friend Kasim accidentally posts a thread on Lark’s Twitter declaring his love for a secret, unrequited crush, Lark’s tweets are suddenly the talk of the school—and beyond. To protect Kasim, Lark decides to take the fall, pretending they accidentally posted the thread in reference to another classmate. It seems like a great idea: Lark gets closer to their crush, Kasim keeps his privacy, and Lark’s social media stats explode. But living a lie takes a toll—as does the judgment of thousands of Internet strangers. Lark tries their best to be perfect at all costs, but nothing seems good enough for the anonymous hordes––or for Kasim, who is growing closer to Lark, just like it used to be between them . . .

In the end, Lark must embrace their right to their messy emotions and learn how to be in love. — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
