Gloria Buenrostro Is Not My Girlfriend

27 June, 2023

The title is written as an overlay on the long brown flowing hair of a girl in profile. A much smaller person is down at the bottom of the cover. He is standing holding a tandem bicycle and is staring up at the larger face of the young woman.Gloria Buenrostro Is Not My Girlfriend by Brandon Hoàng

As one of only two Asian American kids in his entire high school, Gary is used to being ignored and excluded by his classmates. So when the most popular guy in school offers him the opportunity to break into the inner circle, Gary jumps at the chance. All he needs to do is acquire the prized possession of the most beautiful and untouchable girl they know—Gloria Buenrostro.

But as Gary gets to know Gloria, he begins to truly understand her, and she accepts him for who he is—before long, they’re best friends. Being part of the “in crowd” has always been Gary’s dream, but as he comes closer to achieving infamy, he risks losing the first person who sees him for all he is, and realizes that amount of popularity is worth losing a true friend. — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
