Description - The Flywheel by Erin Gough

The Ampersand Prize-winner Erin Gough delivers a heart-warming debut novel about queer romance, crap parents & finding your feet when life gets messy. Seventeen-year-old Delilah drops out of high school when her romance with another girl goes horribly wrong and the whole school turns on her. Preferring chaos to bullying, Del makes it her mission to save her dad's crumbling cafe, the Flywheel, while he 'finds himself' overseas. Accompanied by her charming troublemaker best friend Charlie, Del sets out to save the cafe, keep Charlie out of prison, and maybe get a date with Rosa, the beautiful flamenco dancer from across the road. But when life is messy enough as it is, can girl-on-girl romance ever have a happy ending? This hilarious and accident-prone novel is about how to be heartbroken and how to fall in love; about rising above high-school drama and wrestling with problems that are (almost) too big. It speaks directly to teens and assures them that they're not alone, and does it all with an abundance of heart.
