Product Details


“Matt Boren brilliantly captures the voices of students way back in 1992 with humor and wit and a unique ability to shift from freshman to senior, boy to girl, cheerleader to theater geek. In this hilarious novel, Boren adeptly proves that the more things change, the more things stay the same.”–Kelly Ripa

Folded Notes from High School is heartwarming, hilarious storytelling that might give you some uncomfortable pangs of recognition. This is how you love, scheme, fight and forgive in the high heat of puberty.” —Patton Oswalt

“This tale about Tara’s over-the-top rise and demise has a playful retro pop culture context….Readers will love to hate the talented and terrible Tara.” —School Library Journal

“In a novel that captures the lingo, fads, and teenage preoccupations of the period, actor and TV writer Boren makes a charismatic debut as he traces the ups and downs of Tara Maureen Murphy’s life….Even if she doesn’t win readers’ hearts, [Tara] will make them smile with her conniving antics, sarcastic wit, and tremendous resiliency.” —Publishers Weekly

Folded Notes from High School is the ‘90s YA novel you’ve been waiting for….This one’s for all the readers who fawned over both Danny Zuko and Aaron Samuels.” —HelloGiggles

“If a ’90s Regina George exchanged notes with a freshman boy in school, this would be it.”–PopSugar 

Folded Notes from High School is like a portal into the lives of teenagers past. It’s a hilarious tale of one girl trying to be good at life, and relatably failing time and time again.” —Adi Alsaid, author of Let’s Get Lost and Never Always Sometimes

“Set in 1991, Folded Notes from High School transports readers back in time to a high school filled with a little less technology but no less drama.” –VOYA 

“In the age before Snapchat and Instagram, Tara Murphy rules South High’s social scene armed with only her pen and strategically hidden notes…a great read for slightly older teens who want a glimpse into the increasingly distant—though not so different—past.” —Booklist
