Companion to the New York Times bestseller Nat Enough
It's called a crush for a reason...
For the first time in her life, Natalie feels confident. Her talents are being recognized, she has supportive friends, and she's spending a ton of time with her crush, Derek. But when Derek tells Natalie that he just wants to be friends, Natalie's self-confidence quickly changes to self-doubt. As she tries to recover from her broken heart, Natalie casts aside her talents and even her friends. With no one to turn to, Natalie will have to pull herself out of this mess on her own.

"This story of growing up is a perfect read for students new to middle school and those questioning where their talents lie." Booklist
"With the humor and illustrative style of a daily newspaper comic, debuting creator Scrivan's story of middle school minefields is gentle and timeless." Publishers Weekly
