about

When Claudia accidentally eavesdrops on the epic breakup of Paige and Iris, the it-couple at her school, she finds herself in hot water with prickly, difficult Iris. Thrown together against their will in the class production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, along with the goofiest, cutest boy Claudia has ever known, Iris and Claudia are in for an eye-opening senior year.

Smart, funny, and thoroughly, wonderfully flawed, Claudia navigates a world of intense friendships and tentative romance in this book about expanding your horizons, allowing yourself to be vulnerable, and accepting-and loving-people for who they really are.

Emma Mills is the author of First & Then and This Adventure Ends. She lives in Indianapolis, where she is currently pursuing a PhD in cell biology.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved! This was such an enjoyable novel to read! Prior to reading this novel, I had not read anything or heard of anything written by Emma Mills before. Due to that, I was unreasonably apprehensive going into this novel and I didn't have high expectations but I'm happy to say that I was wrong and that.....I LOVED it. I could go on endlessly about the author's style of writing. It was the perfect fit to me as a reader. The writing and story flowed so well, the characters were likeable, and everything was extremely relatable. Not only was this an extremely accurate 'coming of age' story for teenagers but at the same time, I can relate to some of the events/emotions that the characters are feeling at 26 years of age. It definitely is a suitable novel for a variety of ages and I think that many will get enjoyment from it. Additionally, in attribution to the author's style, the humour within this novel was legitimately laugh-out-loud funny. Believe me, I am not just saying that in a way that it has you quietly surmising over a passage in your head...it actually had me laughing out loud and wanting to tell people the jokes that I had read. They were unique, creative, and a direct representation of the author's personality. Overall, I just can't get over this novel or the level of the author's writing. The writing style in combination with an incredible story made for the perfect 'recipe'. I could go as far as comparing the style of writing of this author resembling a female John Green and I mean that in the highest esteem. Definitely recommend this novel and I know for certain that I will be on the look out for more that has been written by Emma Mills. **Thank you to Raincoast Books for supplying me with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review**
