Reggie and Delilah’s Year of Falling

January 31

The background is bright pink. There are stars, hearts, and calendar pages floating above the two young people sitting on the ground leaning on each other. He is Black and is wearing glasses. He has on plain gray tennis shoes, dark pants, and a gray coat. He is looking at the young woman leaning on him. She is lighter skinned than he is and has long brown curly hair. Her eyes are closed. There is a guitar case behind her. She is wearing a multicolored jacket blue pants and black and white checkered shoes. Reggie and Delilah’s Year of Falling by Elise Bryant
Balzer + Bray

Delilah always keeps her messy, gooey insides hidden behind a wall of shrugs and yeah, whatevers. She goes with the flow—which is how she ends up singing in her friends’ punk band as a favor, even though she’d prefer to hide at the merch table.

Reggie is a D&D Dungeon Master and self-declared Blerd. He spends his free time leading quests and writing essays critiquing the game under a pseudonym, keeping it all under wraps from his disapproving family.

These two, who have practically nothing in common, meet for the first time on New Year’s Eve. And then again on Valentine’s Day. And then again on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s almost like the universe is pushing them together for a reason.

Delilah wishes she were more like Reggie—open about what she likes and who she is, even if it’s not cool. Except . . . it’s all a front. Reggie is just role-playing someone confident. The kind of guy who could be with a girl like Delilah.

As their holiday meetings continue, the two begin to fall for each other. But what happens once they realize they’ve each fallen for a version of the other that doesn’t really exist? — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
