HIGHLY ACCLAIMED HARDCOVER: When Katie Met Cassidy has been praised everywhere from Glamour to The New York Times Book Review, TheSkimm to NPR.org, and has been beloved by mainstream and queer media alike. As rom-coms have always sold best at the paperback price point, we are poised for this to be a must-read summer paperback.
BELOVED AND WELL-CONNECTED AUTHOR WITH GOOD PAPERBACK TRACK: Camille Perri has contacts throughout the publishing industry at many major media outlets, from her time as a librarian, as a ghost writer for Alloy, and as a books editor at Esquire and Cosmopolitan, and her debut novel The Assistants has made her a consumer favorite—it was featured as a Best Book of 2016 on Refinery29, PopSugar, and Cosmo.com, and by the New York Times Book Review’s Paperback Row. Perri’s many fans will eagerly support this new paperback release.
TIMELY AND RELEVANT SUBJECT MATTER: This novel challenges the tropes of the stereoptypical rom-com, and showcases female sexuality in a way that not only highlights it but celebrates it. With the rise of shows such as Broad City and Girls, which give women and their desires more value and agency than is often otherwise depicted, it is clear that people want to read about women breaking down societal norms and going after what they want.
COMPULSIVELY READABLE: Perri’s prose is always quick, hilarious, whip-smart, and on point while it takes on social issues with honesty and freshness. This is summer reading at its finest.
FILM OPTION FOR THE ASSISTANTS: Film rights have been sold to Cold Iron Pictures, with Perri signed on to write the screenplay.
