BOY QUEEN, George Lester's debut novel, will be published by Macmillan in 2020.
Robin Cooper’s life is falling apart. While his friends prepare to head off to University, Robin is looking a pile of rejection letters from drama schools up and down the country, and facing a future without the people he loves the most. Everything seems like it’s ending, and Robin is scrabbling to find his feet. Then one night everything changes at Entity, a local queer bar, and he might have just found his new beginning. After a failed performance at an open mic, Robin is pulled wig first into a world of big hair, high heels and even higher stakes. But with boy trouble and family drama on the horizon, lip synching for your mother-tucking life might not be enough.
