Liz Lighty has always believed she’s too black, too poor, too awkward to shine in her small, rich, prom-obsessed midwestern town. But it’s okay -- Liz has a plan that will get her out of Campbell, Indiana, forever: attend the uber-elite Pennington College, play in their world-famous orchestra, and become a doctor. But when the financial aid she was counting on unexpectedly falls through, Liz’s plans come crashing down . . . until she’s reminded of her school’s scholarship for prom king and queen. There’s nothing Liz wants to do less than endure a gauntlet of social media trolls, catty competitors, and humiliating public events, but despite her devastating fear of the spotlight she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get to Pennington. The only thing that makes it halfway bearable is the new girl in school, Mack. She’s smart, funny, and just as much of an outsider as Liz. But Mack is also in the running for queen. Will falling for the competition keep Liz from her dreams . . . or make them come true?

Leah Johnson is a fiction writer, essayist and midwestern expat currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. Her work is centered on the miracle and magic of black womanhood. You can find her on Twitter ranting about pop culture, politics, and the greatest show of all time: The West Wing @byleahjohnson.

Alaska Jackson was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. She moved to Los Angeles to pursue her love of art in many forms: acting, singing, and spoken word to name a few. As a proud Queer woman of color, she tries to center her art around pieces that reflect her experiences and community. She is a member of the Road Theatre Company, where she most recently performed a theatrical spoken word piece, ‘A Post Racial America Volume 1.’ She currently resides in Los Angeles, with her partner, two dogs and a rather hearty cat.
