Cover Reveal Sign-Up: Love & Resistance by Kara H.L. Chen

Love & Resistance

Published by: Quill Tree/Harper Collins
Publication date: July 4th 2023
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult


Seventeen-year-old Olivia Chang is at her fourth school in seven years. Her self-imposed solitude is lonely, but safe. At Plainstown High, however, Olivia’s usual plan of anonymity fails when the infamous Mitzi Clarke (influencer, queen bee, bully) makes a pointed racist comment in class. Olivia knows what she must do: let it go. But Olivia is tired of ignoring things just so she can survive. This time, she defends herself.

And that is the end of her invisible life.

Soon, Olivia discovers, and joins forces with, the Nerd Net: a secret society who has been thwarting Mitzi’s reign of terror for months. Together, they plan to unite the masses and create true change at Plainstown High.

But in order to succeed, Olivia must do something even more terrifying than lead a movement: trust other people. She might even make true friends along the way . . . if Mitzi doesn’t destroy her first.

From debut author Kara H.L. Chen comes a razor-sharp tale of love, resistance, and the enduring friendships that make it all worthwhile.
