How To Be Remy Cameron

Cover illustration and design: CB Messer

I don’t often swoon, but I swooned HARD for this incandescent book. Julian Winters has crafted a deeply moving story of love, family, and identity that will stay with me forever.

—ADIB KHORRAM, award-winning author of Darius the Great Is Not Okay

From the award-winning author of Running With Lions, a story about overcoming the labels that try to define our lives.

Everyone on campus knows Remy Cameron. He’s the out-and-proud, super-likable guy who friends, faculty, and fellow students alike admire for his cheerful confidence. The only person who isn’t entirely sure about Remy Cameron is Remy himself. Under pressure to write an A+ essay defining who he is and who he wants to be, Remy embarks on an emotional journey toward reconciling the outward labels people attach to him with the real Remy Cameron within.
