Praise

PRAISE FOR FRESHMEN:

Ellen and Ivison absolutely nail teen dialogue, taking readers on a laugh-out-loud-funny journey through the ups and sometimes horrifying downs of freshman year. Flirty, bawdy, sloppy, and buckets of fun.” —Booklist

“Marked by a refreshing absence of mean girl drama, well-rounded and caring boy characters, fluid writing, expert pacing, and genuine humor…full of heart.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Captures the central experiences of starting college…[an] entertaining novel.” —Publishers Weekly

“[For] readers looking ahead to the tumult and triumph of being away from home and “adulting”…An engrossing story enhanced by its timely connection to the #MeToo movement.” —SLJ

“Readers will experience a wild ride through a tumultuous first semester. Those heading to college—or even thinking about it—will appreciate the realistic yet sharply humorous portrayal of two people trying to find themselves and their way forward.” —VOYA
