Happy Agender Pride Day! In its honor, may I shove your face in the general direction one of the most delightful YAs of all time, which happens to contain magic and baking a queer found family and an agender baker with a massive crush on a demisexual transmasc bike messenger? Treat yourself to The Heartbreak Bakery by AR Capetta!
Syd (no pronouns, please) has always dealt with big, hard-to-talk-about things by baking. Being dumped is no different, except now Syd is baking at the Proud Muffin, a queer bakery and community space in Austin. And everyone who eats Syd’s breakup brownies . . . breaks up. Even Vin and Alec, who own the Proud Muffin. And their breakup might take the bakery down with it. Being dumped is one thing; causing ripples of queer heartbreak through the community is another. But the cute bike delivery person, Harley (he or they, check the pronoun pin, it’s probably on the messenger bag), believes Syd about the magic baking. And Harley believes Syd’s magical baking can fix things, too—one recipe at a time.
