Product Details


This book is a hilarious, honest, and thoughtful look at being a girl, falling in love and trying to find the right balance between believing in love and sacrificing too much for it.
—Justine Magazine

In this entertaining antiromance, McDonald turns the tragedy of unrequited love on its head as she traces her heroine’s determined and often comical efforts to find herself and become more independent.
—Publishers Weekly

Gentle and humorous, GETTING OVER GARRETT DELANEY is sure to be a hit with fans of Joan Bauer and Meg Cabot.

A comedic and candid first-person narrative… Plain Janes and lovelorn teens will appreciate the sound self-help tips and be inspired by the stronger, deserves-better Sadie who emerges, ready to give love another chance.
—Kirkus Reviews

Teen girls will relate to the all-consuming love portrayed here, will root for Sadie, and may appreciate the reminder to put self before boyfriends.
—School Library Journal

McDonald moves with sure-footed grace through Sadie’s heartbreak and recovery, adding in the perfect pinch of schadenfreude for readers when Garrett finally realizes what a great girl he’s been missing all along. Sadie’s self-work is quietly inspirational and satisfying, offering genuine hope for the unrequited romantic.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
