Praise

Praise for Love and Other Foreign Words:

“A story as funny, off-beat, and warm-hearted as its heroine. I was wowed.”—Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of My Life Next Door and What I Thought Was True

“Whether happy families are all truly alike, they can certainly have a similar effect when they appear in a novel: The reader can’t help longing to join them. This sentiment kept recurring as I laughed my way through Erin McCahan’s impossibly winning [novel].”—The Wall Street Journal
 
“Readers in the mood for serious laughs need look no further than McCahan’s story about 15-year-old Josie Sheridan… [whose] analytical, overthinking narration and knack for delivering truly lacerating quips…will have readers sticking by her side.”—Publisher’s Weekly, “Best Summer Books 2014”

“Josie’s a rarity in teen literature, a genuine original. Being gifted sets her apart. Armored by arch mannerisms, trying to control what can’t be controlled, wanting and fearing love, she’s one of us. Lively characters and a satisfying plot foil reader expectations in the best possible way.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Coming-of-age moments add a nice bit of heart to Josie’s journey… A quirky love story.”—School Library Journal

“A true-blue lovable weirdo, [Josie is] the type of character I really enjoy seeing… [she is] authentically herself, even when being herself gets in her into trouble.”—HelloGiggles
 
“It’s refreshing to meet a character so cracklingly smart that you wish you could actually buy her a coffee and just hear her jabber. That’s Josie, the main gal in the latest from McCahan.… With impeccable clarity—and hilarity—Josie explores how magical things left unsaid can be and how even a native tongue can be full of meaning and surprises. This clever read will satisfy fans of Rainbow Rowell, John Green, and Stephanie Perkins.”—Booklist

“Josie’s a rarity in teen literature, a genuine original. Being gifted sets her apart. Armored by arch mannerisms, trying to control what can’t be controlled, wanting and fearing love, she’s one of us. Lively characters and a satisfying plot foil reader expectations in the best possible way.”—Kirkus Reviews
