That's What Friends Do
Release date: January 28, 2020
Samantha Goldstein and David Fisher have been friends ever since they met on their town’s Little League baseball team. But when a new kid named Luke starts hanging out with them, what was a comfortable pair becomes an awkward trio.
Luke’s comments make Sammie feel uncomfortable and weird—she just wants to be like one of the guys and doesn’t get why Luke is in her space. But all David sees is how easily Luke flirts with Sammie, and so he decides to finally make a move on the friend he’s always had a crush on.
Things go all wrong and too far, and Sammie and David are both left feeling hurt, confused and unsure of themselves, without anyone to talk to about what happened. As rumors start flying around the school, David must try to make things right (if he can) and Sammie must learn to speak up about what’s been done to her.
Heartfelt and powerfully relatable, That’s What Friends Do is an important story about navigating boundaries, learning to have hard conversations, and being a true friend.
