Who’s That Girl (HarperTeen)
July 11, 2017
Junior Nattie McCullough is totally OK with her place in life: Latin whiz. Member of the school’s gay-straight alliance. Joni Mitchell superfan. Seventeen-year-old who has never been kissed. So when last summer’s crush and her former classmate—Young Lungs lead singer Sebastian Delacroix—comes back to town with his new hit single “Natalie,” she can’t bring herself to believe it could possibly be about her…could it?
As Nattie sorts through the evidence (the lyrics, Sebastian’s elusive text messages, and their brief romantic encounter last year), the song’s popularity skyrockets, and everyone starts speculating about “Natalie’s” identity. If that wasn’t mortifying enough, Nattie runs into another problem: her confusing, flirtation-packed feelings for her good friend Zach. With her once-average life upended, Nattie is determined to figure out once and for all if her short-lived past with Sebastian was something love songs are made of—or just a one-hit wonder.
I know July 2017 seems like super the future, but I promise you will will be here soon. You can add it on Goodreads here!
Stuff Every College Student Should Know (Quirk Books)
March 25, 2014
I wrote a book about how to survive college! It’s pretty funny, and also (hopefully) helpful, and a guy on Amazon called it “VERY SHALLOW” (caps his). Also, the introduction quotes Cicero and “Animal House,” so.
Here is the catalog copy*:
From the best-selling series of how-to guides comes Stuff Every College Student Should Know, the ultimate reference for every part of campus life. Packed with tips, tricks, and handy lists, the book gives college kids the lowdown on everything from pulling all-nighters to navigating dorm room drama to actually doing their own laundry. Covering everything from move-in day to graduation, this pocket-size handbook is the perfect gift for high-school seniors . . . because textbooks can teach you only so much.
More info and preorders here. Stay in school!
