Description

From the author of A Little Something Different comes a quirky, heartfelt novel about high school, first love, and what happens when the plans you make for yourself go just a little bit awry.

Gideon always has a plan. His plans include running for class president, leading the yearbook committee, and having his choice of colleges. They do not include falling head over heels for his best friend and next-door neighbor, Kyle. It’s a distraction. It’s pointless, as Kyle is already dating the gorgeous and popular head cheerleader, Ruby. And Gideon doesn’t know what to do...

Kyle finally feels like he has a handle on life. He has a wonderful girlfriend, a best friend willing to debate the finer points of Lord of the Rings, and social acceptance as captain of the basketball team. Then both Ruby and Gideon start acting really weird, just as his spot on the team is threatened, and Kyle can’t quite figure out what he did wrong…

Author Sandy Hall’s signature wit and charm is back with Been Here All Along, an LGBT young adult romance from Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads.
