Cat Phillips has her head in the stars, but her romantic fantasies may ruin her shot at real-life love in this sweet and funny lesbian story.

It’s Libra Season, and Cat Phillips is ready to run headfirst into love. The only problem is that her crush is on her best friend, Alison Bridgewater, who is more interested in chatting with boys. Maybe Cat should take this as a sign to get over Alison, even if that means dating the musically challenged Jamie Owusu. After all, a new boyfriend is the best cleanse, at least according to Cat’s friends. Unfortunately, having a boyfriend is a lot harder than Cat expected. And then Morgan Delaney swoops in with her green glasses, enigmatic smile, and talent for teasing Cat in ways that make her feel überlicious. But Morgan is a Gemini, and there’s no way that’s in Cat’s horoscope. Will Cat finally get the girl of her dreams? Or is there a chance there’s more to life than Alison Bridgewater? The stars align for the cast of this energetic romp full of comedic misunderstandings and sparkling language.

Praise for Never Trust a Gemini

Readers should enter this book ready for some classic rom-com shenanigans. Nevertheless, Woolf presents her characters sincerely, so the story earns its emotional ups and downs. . . Oodles of entertainment.
—Kirkus Reviews

Cat’s reliance on astrology to help foster relationships endearingly reflects contemporary teens’ obsession with cosmic forces, and her realization that not everyone is defined by what’s in their horoscopes and birth charts is endearing. Debut author Woolf sensitively balances Cat’s painful setbacks with her joyful triumphs, and the teen’s consistently on-target observations and gently sarcastic tone make for many laugh-out-loud moments in this astrology-filled rom-com.
