About the Book

Ava is tired of her ultracool attitude, ultraradical politics, and ultrablack clothing. She's ready to try something new—she's even ready to be someone new. Someone who fits in, someone with a gorgeous boyfriend, someone who wears pink.

But Ava soon finds that changing herself is more complicated than changing her wardrobe. Even getting involved in the school musical raises issues she never imagined. As she faces surprising choices and unforeseen consequences, Ava wonders if she will ever figure out who she really wants to be.

Pink received an American Library Association Stonewall Award Honor for exceptional merit relating to the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender experience.

Critical Praise

“This fun, razor-sharp, and moving novel reminds us that pink—like love—is a many-splendored thing. Read it. It might just change your life.” —John Green, Printz Award-winning author of Looking for Alaska

“A witty, refreshing look at high school and adolescence that obliterates stereotypes along the way. Laugh-out-loud funny, endearing, and heartbreaking.” —Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review)

“Refreshing.” —Booklist

“An entertaining story about teen angst, sexual identity, and high school relationships from a promising debut author.” —School Library Journal

“I laughed, I cried and I occasionally burst into song.” —Justine Larbalestier, author of Liar

“Fit in or be yourself? Wilkinson explores this universal dilemma with just the right mix of sensitivity, ambiguity, insight, wit, and-yes-wisdom. A lovely, funny, and altogether engaging book!” —Michael Cart, author of YOUNG ADULT LITERATURE: From Romance to Realism
