An authentic, angry, and surprisingly funny and romantic novel about sexual harassment, from the award-winning author of Everything Beautiful Is Not Ruined.

Libby’s having a rough senior year. Her older brother absconded with his college money and is bartending on a Greek island. Her dad just told her she’s got to pay for college herself, and he’s evicting her when she graduates so he can AirBnB her room. A drunken hook-up with her coworker Kyle has left her upset and confused. So when Perry Ackerman, serial harasser and the most handsy customer at The Goat where she waitresses, pushes her over the edge, she can hardly be blamed for dumping a pitcher of sangria on his head. Unfortunately, Perry is a local industry hero, the restaurant’s most important customer and Libby’s mom’s boss. Now Libby has to navigate the fallout of her outburst, find an apartment and deal with her increasing rage at the guys who’ve screwed up her life—and her increasing crush on the one guy who truly gets her. As timely as it is timeless, He Must Like You is a story about consent, rage, and revenge, and the potential we all have to be better people.

AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR: Everything Beautiful Is Not Ruined won the OLA White Pine Award in 2018; it was also shortlisted for the Governor General’s Award, and the Ruth & Sylvia Schwartz Award.

HOT TOPIC: This book is perfect for discussion surrounding the grey area of consent, as well as the #metoo movement in general, and waitressing in particular. See for example recent media about tips: www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/03/11/business/tipping-sexual-harassment.html

KEEPING IT LIGHT: While the subject matter is no laughing matter, there are great moments of lightness in the story, which features funny banter between Libby and her friends.

SHOWCASES A POSITIVE RELATIONSHIP: Even as Danielle explores some of the more challenging aspects of consent, there is a positive budding relationship between Libby and one of her male friends, with the promise of something to come.

STRONG COPUBLISHER PARTNER: We are co-pubbing again with Viking on this latest book by Danielle.
