No problem. Unless something goes wrong - Chasing Nirvana by Elyn Oaksmith

"I luuuurrrvvee this book. It's the best LGBTQ+ book I've ever read, and EVERYONE SHOULD READ IT OKAY. It's super meaningful and I love everything about it. The friendship is really heartwarming. " - Chloe, Goodreads


Release Date: November 3rd, 2017

A girl, a band and a dream. And another girl.

Fran Worth is just another girl trying to make it through senior year at Weatherwax High in Aberdeen, Washington. But it's 1993 and Fran is gay. Her comfortably off the radar life turns vividly public when a student nominates Fran for prom queen.
When confronted by angry parents Fran refuses to back down, promising to deliver her hometown heroes in hopes of winning prom queen votes.

Fran heads out on a 24 hour road trip to Daily City, California with four friends, including her crush who may or may not be gay. Their plan? To sneak backstage to ask Kurt Cobain and Nirvana to come home and play prom. No problem. Unless something goes wrong.

About the author:
I graduated from Smith College and have a very expensive MFA from The American Film Institute. Some writers will tell you that their MFA was a waste of money. I won't. It gave me great editorial skills and colorful, crazy experiences working as a screenwriter in LA. Cooking on fishing boats in Alaska paid my tuition. Screenwriting and working in the middle of the Bering Sea have a lot in common: hard work, unpredictability and occasionally both make you want to scream.

Besides my family and friends, I love rescue dogs, cats, cooking, baking, open water swimming, kayaking and reading, reading, reading, reading. Did I mention reading?
