Strong hardcover sales! We’ve net 35,000 copies so far!
Strong commercial appeal from the energetic voice, middle school antics, and shelter dog plotline.
Three starred reviews and great educational opportunity from the math (STEM connection!) and middle school issues.
Timed with (and will tease) a new stand alone hardcover, My World Ends in April (which is also a commercial read with STEM themes).
Author opportunity. Stacy is active on social media, with school and skype visits, and has a great STEM story as a former engineer.
Neuro-diversity: Lucy has OCD—a plotline Stacy handles with care (she met with experts and got authenticity reads).
"Unique and utterly satisfying."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Prepare to fall in love."—School Library Journal, starred review
"Lucy’s journey is beautifully authentic in this debut brimming with warmth, wisdom, and math."—Publishers Weekly, starred review
