About the Author
Jennifer Dugan is a writer, a geek, and a romantic who writes the kinds of stories she wishes she'd had growing up. She's the author of the graphic novel Coven, as well as the young adult novels Playing For Keeps, The Last Girls Standing, Melt With You, Some Girls Do, Verona Comics, and Hot Dog Girl, which was called "a great, fizzy rom-com" by Entertainment Weekly and "one of the best reads of the year, hands down" by Paste magazine. She lives in upstate New York with her family, their dog, a strange kitten who enjoys wearing sweaters, and an evil cat who is no doubt planning to take over the world.

"An empathetic, relatable love story, Some Girls Do might be Jennifer Dugan's best novel to date." --Bust

"Swoony romance with well-crafted multidimensional characters rarely seen in young adult literature, making for a fast-paced read you won't want to put down . . . A thoughtful exploration of coming out and safety, a necessary conversation for those within the queer community." --Culturess

* "Heartfelt and thoughtful . . . An entertaining enemies-to-lovers romance." --Shelf Awareness, starred review

"Succeeds in its portrayal of serious issues coupled with the giddy adrenaline rush of first love . . . Dugan nails the young adult voice. Morgan and Ruby are fully realized and age-appropriately flawed." --School Library Journal

"An enjoyable romantic tale." --Publishers Weekly

"Come for the joy of seeing the beauty queen get the girl; stay for the compassionate exploration of queer visibility in all its complexity. Some Girls Do is beautiful, necessary, and completely irresistible." --Becky Albertalli, New York Times bestselling author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

"Earnest, wistful, romantic, and real, Some Girls Do captures butterflies-in-your-stomach, most-important-thing-ever first love and still finds room to explore the messiness of coming out and coming of age queer." --Casey McQuiston, New York Times bestselling author of Red, White & Royal Blue

"Dugan's best yet! Some Girls Do is bright and aching, with a beautifully rendered relationship at its heart." --Rory Power, New York Times bestselling author of Wilder Girls

"Dugan delivers a story full of nuance, longing, and incredible growth. Some Girls Do is queer romance at its best." --Isabel Sterling, author of These Witches Don't Burn
