Description-

  • "An unflinchingly honest, eye-opening, heartful story that's sure to keep readers talking." —Angie Thomas, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Hate U Give and On the Come Up

    "Romantic, funny, hopeful, and unflinchingly real." —Becky Albertalli, New York Times bestselling author of Simon Vs. The Homosapiens Agenda

    The uplifting story of an HIV-positive teen, falling in love and learning to live her truth.
    Simone Garcia-Hampton is starting over at a new school, and this time things will be different. She's making real friends, making a name for herself as student director of Rent, and making a play for Miles, the guy who makes her melt every time he walks into a room. The last thing she wants is for word to get out that she's HIV-positive, because last time . . . well, last time things got ugly.
         Keeping her viral load under control is easy, but keeping her diagnosis under wraps is not so simple. As Simone and Miles start going out for real—shy kisses escalating into much more—she feels an uneasiness that goes beyond butterflies. She knows she has to tell him that she's positive, especially if sex is a possibility, but she's terrified of how he'll react! And then she finds an anonymous note in her locker: I know you have HIV. You have until Thanksgiving to stop hanging out with Miles. Or everyone else will know too.
         Simone's first instinct is to protect her secret at all costs, but as she gains a deeper understanding of the prejudice and fear in her community, she begins to wonder if the only way to rise above is to face the haters head-on. . . .
    "Full Disclosure is such a joy to read." —Erika Sanchez, National Book Award finalist for I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter

    "A big-hearted love letter to inclusivity, bravery, and acceptance, Full Disclosure is a wonder of a book." —Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces

Excerpts-

  • From the book As much as I’ve tried to convince him otherwise, my father still thinks he needs to accompany me to my first gynecologist appointment. To him, it’s an important rite of passage.
    “I’m sure Tía Camila would’ve taken me,” I say, glancing out the car window. It’s bad enough that we’re going to this appointment together, but it’s also uncomfortably close to the hospital where he works, which means we’re going to run into at least three of his patients. “She likes doing this sort of stuff, and we could’ve worked it around her business trips.”
    “Well, you’re my daughter,” he says, pulling into a parking spot. “And this is the sort of thing parents live for.”
    “Somehow I doubt that.”
    Dad has patches of gray sneaking into his black hair, and there’s an indent in the tan skin of his nose where his glasses rest. When he isn’t wearing a lab coat, he dresses in old-man clothes like sweater vests and khakis. I wish his lack of fashion sense were the most embarrassing thing about him, but it isn’t.
    Inside, he actually pulls out a clipboard with questions to ask the doctor. I might just die. The waiting room feels too small and smells like cheap air freshener.
    He tucks the clipboard by his side, looking down at a questionnaire from the secretary.
    “When was your last menstrual cycle?”
    Dad.”
    “These are normal questions.”
    “Just . . .” I take the questionnaire from him. “I’ll figure this stuff out.”
    “I ask my patients these sorts of questions all the time, you know. It doesn’t have to be awkward.”
    “But I’m your kid. That makes it weirder.”
    I fly through the questions, and I’m mostly honest. He’s already filled out the parts that take the most time—my medical background, especially—so I bring the form back up to the lady at the desk. When I return, Dad’s pulled out the clipboard he brought from home, reviewing his questions.
    “There’s really no reason for you to be nervous, Simone,” he says, patting my leg. His glasses keep sliding down his nose. If he were my doctor, I wouldn’t be able to take him seriously. “A lot of the women I see are nervous for their first appointments.”
    “I’m not a woman.” My legs bounce up and down. “I’m, like, twelve.”
    “You’re seventeen. Most girls have their first appointment when they’re fifteen, but it’s more of a formality. You aren’t even—”
    “Sexually active. I know. But we both know I’m not having sex.”
    A woman with a gigantic pregnant belly glares at me. I don’t know why she seems irritated. She’ll be lucky if her kid ends up anything like me. I’ve made it to seventeen without dying, first of all, which I’m not sure my parents even expected.
    “So,” he says. “Why were you so adamant about making this appointment now?”
    I bite my lip. Technically, I don’t need to see a gynecologist. I’m not dating anyone. My chances of losing my virginity haven’t magically increased recently. But Dr. Khan, my HIV doctor, recommended that I see a gynecologist if I have questions, and, well, I do.
    I can’t exactly tell my dad the other part of the truth—that I want to know more about sex because of a hot guy at school. There’s nothing going on...

    July 29, 2019
    New school, new friends, new crush, same old secret. Simone Garcia-Hampton, a black 17-year-old, is HIV-positive. And though she’s healthy, she knows how people react when they find out; bullying and other negative reactions are why she left her old school. But just as she’s settling in, directing the school play—the apposite Rent—and maybe starting a relationship, she starts getting notes threatening to reveal her HIV status. College-age author Garrett portrays an authentic sense of young adult sexuality in Simone, who is both knowledgeable about sex (masturbation and vibrators are both frankly discussed) and unsure about it. She also creates strong characters in Simone’s nontraditional family: her supportive, loving fathers (Pops is black; Dad is Latino) adopted her at birth. The plot mechanics grow a bit heavy-handed toward the book’s conclusion, and love interest Miles, always willing to listen to musical theater trivia and unafraid to show his feelings, can seem a bit too perfect. But the idea that even purportedly open-minded Bay Area parents freak out about the presence of an HIV-positive student feels all too believable, and readers will root for sympathetic Simone in this frankly sex-positive debut. Ages 14–up. Agent: Brianne Johnson, Writers House.

    Garrett's debut novel not only successfully tackles discrimination through the lenses of race, sexuality, and having HIV, but also shows the possibility of living a full life despite it all. Simone Garcia-Hampton is perfectly ordinary in many ways--she gets embarrassed by her Pops and her Dad, obsesses over her dream of directing musicals on Broadway, tries to figure out if she's bisexual, crushes on a boy in drama club, and thinks about having sex. But the San Francisco teen, who was adopted by her two gay dads, also has to consider her inherited HIV-positive status along with the threatening notes she starts to receive after she starts dating Miles. She knows what could happen if everyone at her new school found out about her status, but she also doesn't want to give up what she's got with Miles. Lydia and Claudia are her two best friends and, along with her fathers, her fiercest supporters. Simone will have to take a chance on trusting those closest to her with her secret before she can truly take back her power. Simone's story will educate readers about the intricacies of living fully with HIV and controlling your narrative. The primary and most secondary characters are well developed, and the pace is spot-on. Simone, her Pops, and Miles are black; her Dad is Latinx; Lydia is Taiwanese and bisexual; and tan-skinned Claudia is an asexual lesbian. A story about telling your truth, your way. (Fiction. 14-18)

    Starred review from September 1, 2019

    Gr 9 Up-Meet Simone. Simone loves musicals. She loves watching reruns of A Different World. She is a teenager who is curious about sex and she has a crush on Miles, a cute lacrosse player from her school. She's a typical teen, except she has a secret-she is living with HIV. She had to leave her previous school when someone she trusted outed her, but things finally seem to be looking up at her new school. She is learning how to navigate her world with the love and support of her friends, her two dads, and an HIV support group. She is even directing the school musical, Rent. But when someone from her school leaves an anonymous note threatening to expose her, Simone must make a decision. Should she share her secret and risk losing her friends and newfound love, Miles? Or keep her secret and miss out on exploring her new relationship? This book sheds light on a group that is hidden in the shadows, and on a serious issue in America and across the world. Everyone can learn something from this debut novel. Garrett debunks several myths about people living with HIV and also shows a girl living and loving a life that is not tragic because she is living with HIV. VERDICT Readers will fall in love with Simone's two dads and zany best friends. Add this to all collections today.-Cicely Lewis, Meadowcreek High School

  • Becky Albertalli, New York Times bestselling author of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda "Romantic, funny, hopeful, and unflinchingly real, with some next-level theater kid geekery to boot. Simone is the kind of brilliant, messy, nerdy teen I love to root for. I'm so glad her story is in the world."
  • Tiffany D. Jackson, award-winning author of Monday's Not Coming "An absolutely necessary and illuminating read. This will definitely make people question their own morality. And it's about damn time."
  • Erika Sanchez, National Book Award finalist for I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter "Full Disclosure is such a joy to read. A heartfelt coming of age story about navigating the uncertainties and joys of adolescence while also facing the challenges of being Black and HIV positive in contemporary America."
  • Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces "A big-hearted love letter to inclusivity, bravery, and acceptance, Full Disclosure is a wonder of a book. Camryn Garrett's debut will leave you crying, laughing, and cheering as Simone takes on the world and makes it her own."
  • Marieke Nijkamp, #1 New York Times bestselling author of This Is Where It Ends "Fearless and affirming, Full Disclosure is a celebration of love, friendship, and being true to yourself."
  • Sandhya Menon, New York Times bestselling author of When Dimple Met Rishi "Mind-blowingly powerful, Full Disclosure is an intense, unapologetically sex-positive read that's going to spur many much-needed conversations in libraries, classrooms, and households around the country. A book I wish I'd had growing up."
