about

A novel about freaks, geeks, crushes, and friends—and how sometimes you can be all of them at once.

Charlie is the freak. Gloria is the freak magnet. They're pretty much destined to meet. And when they do, sparks fly . . . for Charlie. Gloria, well, she just thinks he's like every other freak who feels compelled to talk to her, although a little better-looking than most.

While Charlie has his head in the clouds, Gloria's got hers in a book: her Freak Folio—a record of every weirdo who's talked to her in the last year (it's a big book). But never before has she felt the pull to get to know one of them better. Until now.

In this he-said-she-said tale of love, loss, and lucky signs from the author of the ac-claimed Funny Little Monkey, two young strangers at a crossroads in their lives become friends by happy accident (okay, maybe some harmless stalking is involved—and not by the person you'd think!) and forever change each other.

Andrew Auseon is a video game designer and the author ofFunny Little Monkey,Jo-Jo and the Fiendish Lot, andAlienated, which he wrote with filmmaker David O. Russell. Andrew lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with his family.

Editorial Reviews

“Readers will easily fall for this story of freak love; it’s poignant, laugh-out-loud funny and awkward in the best of ways. ”
