“Inspired by her own life experiences, in her debut, Wyman explores typical junior high stresses such as navigating friendships while deftly exploring serious topics like toxic family dynamics, substance abuse, and the psychological toll of bullying. Interwoven with the weight of heavy topics is a message of hope, perseverance, and self-acceptance presented in a humorous and relatable way. It’s this accessible, balanced approach to painful and emotionally charged situations that makes this book so wildly successful . . .

A hugely relatable must-read: witty, intensely emotional, and full of heart.”

—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Christina Wyman is a teacher and writer living in Michigan with her

husband and silly rescue cats named Alfred and greta cannoli – not to mention the raccoons, owls, and hummingbirds that occupy a tree outside their bedroom window. She grew up in a tiny apartment with her family in

Brooklyn, New York, where she dreamed of becoming a writer. When she’s

not writing, you can find her stocking up on chocolate or trying to

convince her husband to adopt more cats.
