The Opposite of Invisible, by Liz Gallagher
Alice and Jewel have been friends forever and even though they are girl and boy, their friendship has been just that. But at a concert, the object of Alice's crush takes a noticeable interest in her and Jewel's jealousy rises up in response. Now Alice has to choose between her best friend and the boy of her dreams.
Filled with more than the usual amount of name-dropping of famous places in Seattle, this realistic take on the classic love triangle covers all of the usual bases. It's not a new plot or even a particularly inventive take on it, but it's a satisfying romance. If you know Seattle, it's also fun to picture all of the nearly-famous places where the action takes place.
