We Are Totally Normal
by Rahul Kanakia
Nandan’s got a plan to make his junior year perfect, but hooking up with his friend Dave isn’t part of it–especially because Nandan has never been into guys.
Still, Nandan’s willing to give a relationship with him a shot. But the more his anxiety grows about what his sexuality means for himself, his friends, and his social life, the more he wonders whether he can just take it all back.
Is breaking up with Dave–the only person who’s ever really gotten him–worth feeling “normal” again?
A main character (Nandan) questions his sexuality, is attracted to people of multiple genders, and does not feel comfortable with labels. A secondary character (Cassie) identifies as bisexual on-page.
