Look

By: Zan Romanoff

Things Lulu Shapiro’s 5,000 Flash followers don’t know about her:
-That the video of her with another girl was never supposed to go public.
-That Owen definitely wasn’t supposed to break up with her because of it.
-That behind the carefully crafted selfies and scenes Lulu projects onto people’s screens, her life feels like a terrible, uncertain mess.

Then Lulu meets Cass. Cass isn’t interested in looking at Lulu’s life, only in living in it. And The Hotel—a gorgeous space with an intriguing, Old Hollywood history and a trust-fund kid to restore it—seems like the perfect, secret place for them to get to know each other. But just because Lulu has stepped out of the spotlight doesn’t mean it’ll stop following her every move.

Look is about what you present vs. who you really are, about real intimacy and manufactured intimacy and the blurring of that line. It’s a deceptively glamorous, feminist, emotionally complex, utterly compelling, queer coming-of-age novel about falling in love and taking ownership of your own self—your whole self—in the age of social media.

Lulu Shapiro is a quasi-celebrity on Flash (an app similar to Snapchat). She shows her 10,000 followers the self she believes they want to see and follows rules that help her maintain popular status in her affluent Los Angeles private school. What she doesn’t show is her heartbreak over her breakup with her boyfriend, her depression after a video Lulu Shapiro is a quasi-celebrity on Flash (an app similar to Snapchat). She shows her 10,000 followers the self she believes they want to see and follows rules that help her maintain popular status in her affluent Los Angeles private school. What she doesn’t show is her heartbreak over her breakup with her boyfriend, her depression after a video was leaked of her making out with another girl, and her questioning of her sexuality. When Lulu meets Cass at a party, Cass takes her to an old hotel, where Lulu attempts to find herself. As Lulu and Cass spend more time there, they are faced with an event that will not only test their relationship but cause Lulu to question if her life on Flash is really how she wants to be known. Part coming-of-age story, part slow-burn romance, part feminist-manifesto, this novel shows that looks can be deceiving. As Lulu explores her bisexuality and the men in her life, she examines the history of feminine roles and how the expectations of others have impacted her life. Frequent drug use and sexual content make this a choice for older teens. A solid addition to high school and teen collections and libraries looking to enhance their LGBTQ holdings.
