You're the One That I Want by Simon James Green

You're the One That I Want by Simon James Green


Freddie has a reputation for being inoffensive, sweet, kind - and therefore completely un-dateable. As he starts sixth form, Freddie decides that this nice guy isn't going to finish last any more.


No more missing out on parties because he's got to do his homework.


No more saying no when he really wants to say yes.


And most of all no more lusting after unobtainable straight boys who enjoy the attention but ultimately break his heart.


Freddie embarks on a series of changes designed to transform his social and romantic life, and suddenly he's a drama darling, getting invited to all the popular kids' parties, and hot new boy Zach is showing an interest.


Life couldn't be better! But the path to love is never smooth - and Freddie's about to learn that changing everything about yourself isn't necessarily a foolproof way of finding the right person...


You're the One that I Want is best described as the cast of Sex Education put on a production of Grease meets Bridget Jones… if Bridget Jones was a gay teenage boy who couldn’t be arsed to actually keep a diary. By the ridiculously talented author of Heartbreak Boys.
