Synopsis:


Comic book geek Wesley Hudson excels at two things: slacking off at his job and pining after his best friend, Nico. Advice from his friends, ‘90s alt-rock songs, and online dating articles aren’t helping much with his secret crush. And his dream job at Once Upon a Page, the local used bookstore, is threatened when a coffeeshop franchise wants to buy the property. To top it off, his annoying brother needs wedding planning advice. When all three problems converge, Wes comes face-to-face with the one thing he’s been avoiding—adulthood.


Now, confronted with reality, can Wes balance saving the bookstore and his strained sibling relationship? Can he win the heart of his crush, too?

About the Author

About the Tour

The tour for The Summer of Everything exclusively accommodates both book bloggers and booktubers. It is open to both US-based and international bookish creators, with priority being given to applicants who identify as Black, gay, and other relevant intersections (i.e. Black queer). Biracial and queer people of color will also be given priority. The tour’s official hashtag is #WesGoesOnTour.

The tour will run from August 31st to September 4th, which is the week prior to the book’s release date. Although book reviews are required for this tour, you are more than welcome to add other creative or promotional content of your preference.

Digital review copies of The Summer of Everything will be distributed through NetGalley. This means that you need a NetGalley account to participate.

Sign-ups will close within this week, and the selected tour hosts will be contacted via email. The CBT Twitter account will announce once the confirmation emails have been sent out.

For other concerns or inquiries, you are more than welcome to leave a comment!
