BRAVERY DESERVES HAPPILY EVER!
Tired of seeing gay characters getting the short end of the stick, 23 year old Texan author, Charlotte Reagan, decided to write her own story about gay teens leading happy, healthy lives. Her debut novel JUST JULIET is a smash hit on A$#*&! with over 350 four and five-star reviews.
While growing up and discovering her sexuality, Charlotte sought out literature with queer protagonists and found that in books and across all media, LGBT+ roles are often painted in a dark and distressful light, leaving audiences to wonder – where are all the happy gays? Charlotte took matters into her own hands when writing Just Juliet and created a love story where the protagonists aren’t draped in tragedy because of their sexual orientation.
Charlotte is the next big voice in LGBT YA literature, and readers inside and outside of the LGBT community are identifying and connecting with her. «Just Juliet is the story I wish I could have given to my parents to read when I was 16 so that they knew what I was going through.»
“Coming out can be hard and messy, but it is possible to come out, to still be loved, and to still be happy. “Come (out) and discover why thousands of readers have fallen for Just Juliet.
