Montgomery Sole is a square peg in a small town, a girl with two moms forced to go to a school full of homophobes and people who don't even know what irony is.

Monty's obsessed with paranormal mysteries like ESP, astrology, superpowers, and the healing powers of frozen yogurt, but when strange things actually start happening to Monty, she realizes that the greatest mystery of all is herself. Thoughtful, funny, and honest, this book will make you want to laugh and cry over a big cup of frozen yogurt with extra toppings and your best friends at your side.

Editorial Reviews

Selection - 2017 Rainbow Book List, Young Adult FictionPRAISE FOR Saving Montgomery Sole:"Montgomery's slow confrontation with reality creates a realistic, satisfying arc, and Tamaki's economical storytelling results in dimensional characters whose struggles feel viscerally real." --Publishers Weekly"While the themes are mature, the writing and characters are accessible for younger middle school readers; this would make a strong addition to most school or public library YA collections." --School Library Journal"Mariko Tamaki gives good misfit. In a YA field crowded with stock outcasts, Tamaki’s weirdos stand out for never being merely the sum of a few obvious quirks or emotions . . . Monty and her friends could’ve hung around for another hundred pages, and I wouldn’t have minded a bit." --Quill & Quire"It reads like a sitcom directed by Alexander Payne; while it’s dark and hilarious, it’s also true-to-life, honest and some genuine heart-warming 'aww' moments sneak in along the way." --Globe and Mail
