Following gay Cuban-American teen, Luis Gonzalez, as he travels back to the 80’s in an attempt to save the life of a closeted student, David Valdes‘ irresistible YA debut, Spin Me Right Round, brings an exciting and charming new voice to the classic time-travel narrative.

“Meet Luis. He’s out, he’s proud … and, although he doesn’t know it yet, he’s about to travel back in time to save a closeted student called Chaz from a tragic end.

All Luis Gonzalez really wants is to go to prom with his boyfriend. But when a hit on the head knocks him back in time to 1985, he finds himself in high school with his own parents and a whole lot of homophobia. It turns out a Christian school in the 1980s probably isn’t the safest place to be a gay kid. Soon, Luis is in over his head trying to untangle the mess he’s in, figure how to save Chaz … and somehow get home to his own time.”
