A funny and insightful Own-Voices novel about an autistic teen who realises she's been missing all the signs when it comes to her romantic life.  

"I thought I was nobody's teen crush, but turns out I was just missing the signs."   

Zoe Kelly is starting a new phase of her life. High school was a mess of bullying and autistic masking that left her burnt out and shut down. Now, with an internship at an online media company-the first step on the road to her dream writing career-she is ready to reinvent herself. 

But she didn't count on returning to her awkward and all-too-recent high-school experiences for her first writing assignment.  

When her piece, about her non-existent dating life, goes viral, eighteen-year-old Zoe is overwhelmed and more than a little surprised by the response. But, with a deadline and a list of romantic contenders from the past to reconnect with for her piece on dating, she is hoping one of her old sparks will turn into a new flame.   

Social Queue is a funny and heart-warming own-voices autistic story about deciphering the confusing signals of attraction and navigating a path to love.
