Dear Wendy—a dual POV young ddult debut from Ann Zhao—finds two aromantic and asexual students at Wellesley College in an online feud while unknowingly becoming friends in real life, in a platonic love story perfect for fans of Alice Osman's Loveless!
Sophie Chi is in her first year at Wellesley College and has long accepted her aromantic and asexual identities. Despite knowing she’ll never fall in love, she enjoys anonymously running an Instagram account that offers relationship advice to other Wellesley students. When Joanna “Jo” Ephron—also a first-year aromantic and asexual student at Wellesley—created their “Sincerely Wanda” account, it wasn't meant to be a serious thing or take off like it did. But now she might have a rivalry of sorts with Dear Wendy. Oops.
While tensions rise online, Sophie and Jo get closer in real life, especially after they realize their shared aroace identities. As their friendship develops, can it survive if they learn who’s behind the Wendy and Wanda accounts?
Exploring a-spec identities, college life, and more, this novel is ultimately a love story about two people who are not—and will not—be in love!
