Praise for IT GOES LIKE THIS: 

"It Goes Like this was everything my music nerd heart needed AND wanted. Lyrical and heart-wrenching, Moreland gives readers a VIP pass backstage to fandoms while showcasing four of the realest characters I’ve ever had the pleasure to read in YA. Beautiful representation, sweetest longing and the pop-star romance of my dreams; Swifties will swoon happily with this story tattooed on their hearts." — Erin Hahn, author of You'd Be Mine and More Than Maybe

"Moreland’s writing instantly pulled me in, seamlessly weaving together multiple points of view to tell a rich, gripping story full of heartbreak and joy. A spectacular debut about queer love, life, and friendship, It Goes Like This is a song I never wanted to end." — Jennifer Dugan, author of Hot Dog Girl

"A poignant debut about friendship, falling out, falling in, and finding one’s way...will have you singing in your seat and fangirling long after you finish the final chapters."   — Jaye Robin Brown, author of Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit

"A moving story of friendship, love, and growing up. Like the best of melodies, it will stay with you long after it’s over." — Caleb Roehrig, author of Fell of Dark

"A delicious escape, the kind of book where you dive in and just want to stay a while. A journey through memory, love, family, and loss — Eva, Gina, Steph, and Celeste are the kind of characters that stick with you. This novel was a soothing balm to my heart during the wreckage that has been 2020." — Aminah Mae Safi, author of Tell Me How You Really Feel

"It Goes Like This is a touching and delightful exploration of queer friendship, love, and art. I fell in love with Moreland’s richly drawn characters so completely that I’m ready to join their Tumblr fandom. I want to live in this fun, heartfelt, and important book ‘til the moon crashes into the sea."
