What happens when your enemy becomes your friend … with benefits? Red, White and Royal Blue meets The Magicians in this surprising, wildly original and joyously funny LGBTQ YA novel set in a magical boarding school. 

Tim Te Maro and Elliott Parker – classmates at Fox Glacier High School for the Magically Adept – have never gotten along. But when they both get dumped the day before the big egg-baby assignment, they reluctantly decide to ditch their exes and work together. 
When the two boys start to bond over their magically enchanted egg-baby, they realise that beneath their animosity is something like friendship … or physical attraction. Soon, a no-strings-attached hook-up seems like a good idea. Just for the duration of the assignment. After all, they don’t have feelings for each other … so what could possibly go wrong? 

This is the book we’ve been waiting for in a post-Harry Potter world: a funny, spunky rom-com set in a magical boarding school with a queer twist and SO MUCH SPARKLE. 

Characters navigate such issues as changing friendship groups, absent parents and consent in a manner that is both informative, entertaining and often hilarious.

There are a lot of queer rom-coms in the market at the moment, but none of them look like this: all the fun parts of a magical world, crossed with the giddy hedonism of the 'honeymoon period' of a new relationship.

This LGBTQ novel is by H.S. Valley, a Kiwi writer who's the latest winner of the Ampersand Prize – the premier prize for debut authors in Australia and New Zealand.
