About the Author

Jason June is a gay, genderqueer, list-making, Virgo Sun, Taurus Moon, Pokémon-playing writer living in Austin, TX. If he had a Gay Agenda, marry the love of your life, be mom to two extremely pampered Pomeranians, and get accidentally kicked in the face by Kylie Minogue as an extra in her music video would all be crossed off.

Jason June (Out of the Blue, 2022) has written an important, entertainingly busy book with a welcome, character-driven focus on a femme teen. Intelligently and smoothly written, the book makes a much-needed contribution to queer literature. An excellent companion to L.C. Rosen's Camp (2020) that proves, as Riley would say, it's hearts over parts! -- Booklist (starred review)

An incredible coming-of-age story about embracing yourself, combatting problematic standards, and love in all its shapes and ways all wrapped into something so campy, dramatic, queer, and so uniquely and beautifully Jason June. -- Jonny Garza Villa, author of Pura Belpré Honor Book Fifteen Hundred Miles from the Sun

Fierce and fearless, Jason June's rainbow explosion of queer coming of age is pure joy. RILEY WEAVER will leave you feeling seen in ways you didn't know you needed and inspire you to make your own gay chaos. Thank the queer gods that RILEY WEAVER exists in the world!! -- Stephan Lee, author of K-Pop Confidential

Hilarious and bursting with heart, Riley Weaver is sure to dazzle readers in this story about love, identity, and self-discovery! -- Robby Weber, author of If You Change Your Mind

A laugh-out-loud gender euphoric dream, RILEY WEAVER serves zany 90s teen romcom realness that made me gay-gasp with glee! Riley's journey is a fabulous tapestry that adeptly weaves threads of important commentary about gay culture and identity discourse, as well as inter-community support (and the inevitable lack thereof), with a glittery patchwork of self-love that had me rooting for all the gaybutantes out there who need this story. Jason June's books always make me feel seen while speaking truth to queer power, and RILEY WEAVER is no exception. Femme, fierce, and ferocious, you simply cannot miss Riley's fabulous debut! -- Steven Salvatore, critically acclaimed author of AND THEY LIVED...

Full of humor, honesty, and a cast of characters colorful enough to rival your favorite eyeshadow palette, Riley Weaver proves there's no one way to be queer and the things that set us apart are the things that make us beautiful. -- Emery Lee author of MEET CUTE DIARY

This coming-of-age story deftly handles complex social themes of identity, social media fame, and discrimination within queer communities while maintaining a lighthearted tone. Amid the antics of fulfilling his pillars and pursuing love, Riley wrestles with jealousy, makes mistakes, and learns about meaningful apologies. A surprise twist brings the drama to a satisfying resolution. Fierce and fabulous fun. -- Kirkus Reviews
