Left Bank Books welcomes author and St. Louis native Amy Spalding, who will sign and discuss her new young adult novel, “The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the Best Burger in Los Angeles)”!

This event is free and open to the public, but book purchase is required for signing.

Seventeen, fashion-obsessed, and gay, Abby Ives has always been content playing the sidekick in other people’s lives, happy to focus on her plus-size style blog and her dreams of taking the fashion industry by storm. When she lands a great internship at her favorite boutique, she’s thrilled to take the first step toward her dream career. Then she falls for her fellow intern, Jordi Perez. Hard. And now she’s competing against the girl she’s kissing to win the coveted paid job at the end of the internship. Just as Abby starts to feel like she’s no longer the sidekick in her own life, Jordi’s photography surprisingly puts her in the spotlight.
