<b>"Heartfelt, romantic, and quietly groundbreaking. This book will save lives." -- Becky Albertalli, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda</i></b><br /><br /><b>It's just three words: <i>I am nonbinary</i>. But that's all it takes to change <i>everything</i>.</b><br /><br />When Ben De Backer comes out to their parents as nonbinary, they're thrown out of their house and forced to move in with their estranged older sister, Hannah, and her husband, Thomas, whom Ben has never even met. Struggling with an anxiety disorder compounded by their parents' rejection, they come out only to Hannah, Thomas, and their therapist and try to keep a low profile in a new school.<br /><br />But Ben's attempts to survive the last half of senior year unnoticed are thwarted when Nathan Allan, a funny and charismatic student, decides to take Ben under his wing. As Ben and Nathan's friendship grows, their feelings for each other begin to change, and what started as a disastrous turn of events looks like it might just be a chance to start a happier new life.<br /><br />At turns heartbreaking and joyous, <i>I Wish You All the Best</i> is both a celebration of life, friendship, and love, and a shining example of hope in the face of adversity.

<b>* "Konigsberg demonstrates once again why he is one of the major voices in LGBTQ literature." -- <bolditalic>Booklist</bolditalic>, starred review</b><br /><br />Max: Chill. Sports. Video games. Gay and not a big deal, not to him, not to his mom, not to his buddies. And a secret: An encounter with an older kid that makes it hard to breathe, one that he doesn't want to think about, ever.<br /><br />Jordan: The opposite of chill. Poetry. His "wives" and the Chandler Mall. Never been kissed and searching for Mr. Right, who probably won't like him anyway. And a secret: A spiraling out of control mother, and the knowledge that he's the only one who can keep the family from falling apart.<br /><br />Throw in a rickety, 1980s-era food truck called Coq Au Vinny. Add in prickly pears, cloud eggs, and a murky idea of what's considered locally sourced and organic. Place it all in Mesa, Arizona, in June, where the temp regularly hits 114. And top it off with a touch of undeniable chemistry between utter opposites.<br /><br />Over the course of one summer, two boys will have to face their biggest fears and decide what they're willing to risk -- to get the thing they want the most.
