This heartfelt coming of age story follows Michie, a high school junior who begins to grapple with big questions of love, purpose, and family while working on something that could change her life.

High school junior Michie is struggling to answer the question of who she is for her scholarship essays, the only chance she has at making it into Brown as a first-generation college student. The essay prompts would be hard for anyone, but since Michie's been estranged from her mother since she was seven, her concept of family has long felt murky.

Enter new kid and basketball superstar Derek de la Rosa, an instant crush who sends Michie's focus into a tailspin. At their teacher's suggestion, Derek enlists Michie as a tutor to help him catch up in Spanish class, turning life upside down. Because Derek? He is very cute, very talented, very popular, and very much has his eye on Michie, no matter how invisible she believes herself to be.

When Michie's mother unexpectedly reaches out to make amends, and with her scholarship deadlines looming, Michie will have to decide if she wants to reopen old wounds or close the door on her past once and for all. And as she spends more time with Derek, she will have to figure out how close she can risk getting to him, and how much of her heart she is willing to share. Because while Michie may not know who she is, she's starting to realize who she wants to become, if only she can take a chance on Derek, on herself, and on her future.

From NOVL Nation

“Michie is so wonderful and self aware and STRONG and I’ve never loved a romance like I’ve loved her and Derek’s beautiful friendship. This is what books are supposed to be, guys… Lane is the next great thing in YA, I can promise you that.”
– Briana, @brianas_booknook

“It’s real, raw, sad, and hopeful. It’s tender and nerve-wracking and heart-wrenching. It is everything I love in a YA book… This impactful book will definitely stay with me for a long time to come.”
–Celia, @celiamcmahonreads

“Love Times Infinity is about believing we are worthy of love. Worthy of time, of opportunities, of living life to the fullest.”
– Lili, @utopia.state.of.mind

“This book, for all its fun tropes (love at first sight; coffee shop au) is in its essence a story about self-worth, and more importantly finding self-worth at a time when things are going okay – not great, but not at rock bottom. In this way I found myself drawn to Michie and her story more; her finding self-worth could have come a year before the story began, hinted in some of her memories of a darker time, but instead it comes unexpectedly – when someone who doesn’t know her wants to and she doesn’t understand why.”
– Thomas, @scriptedknight

“The complexity of the relationships really elevated this book. I had so many FEELINGS for Michie and really everyone in the book. There are points of rawness, of exposure, of trying to protect oneself. There were points where my heart went out to Michie.”
– Sarah, @booksintheirnaturalhabitat

“Love Times Infinity is a harrowing and poignant coming of age novel that centers the many definitions of love as well as its messy consequences… If you’re a crier, get the tissues ready.”
– Toya, @thereadingchemist

I loved Michie, Derek, JoJo, and Michie’s grandma. The characters in this novel pop off the pages and felt so real to me. This is a book that will stick with me for a long, long time. Bravo!
– Danielle, Always A Book to Read

Love Times Infinity blew me away. A coming of age story, of finding yourself, and finding answers to what makes you YOU, and what makes your heart whole.”
–Ellie, Ellie’s Infinite Books
