“A rollicking rom-com full of fun, complex characters, laugh-out-loud one-liners and the kind of delicious banter that keeps you smiling from page one to the very end.”—NPR
“Jackson's book is a deftly feminist take on the ways
in which thirst and fandom can be therapeutic practices.”—Entertainment Weekly
"It would be enough if Jackson’s latest were simply a charming rom-com replete with laugh-out-loud one liners and pop-culture references
, but it’s also a moving, heartfelt
story about coping with grief, stress, and major life changes. It doesn’t hurt that Bethany Lu Carlisle, an endearing 40-something Keanu Reeves fangirl, and her best friend, True Erickson, are the kind of characters one can’t help but root for.
...The rom-com trappings keep things lighthearted and welcoming even as Jackson probes heavy emotions. Readers will be wowed.
