Praise

“I’m wrecked with love for this funny, joyful, bighearted book.” —Becky Albertalli, bestselling author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

“I never expected I’d fall so hard and so fast for a girl in a hot dog suit. Both classic and new, hysterical and heartfelt, and packed with all the awesomeness and awkwardness of first love, first job, and the painful thrill of growing up. So if you need me this summer, I’ll be at Magic Castle Playland with the hot dog girl.” —Mackenzi Lee, bestselling author of The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue

Hot Dog Girl is a treat of a book packed with scheming, queer romance, and amusement park food. This laugh-out-loud debut made me hungry and stole my heart.” —Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone

“A great, fizzy rom-com… The setting is ingeniously imaginative—an amusement park, where over one summer teens dressed as princesses, pirates, and (yes) hot dogs are left to flirt and gossip and fall in love. And [Dugan’s] heroine, Lou, is beautifully realized: a complex bisexual woman who finds her desires and expectations challenged by a strangely magical world.” —Entertainment Weekly

“A hilarious delight. This wonderful romance novel set at a theme park makes for one of the best reads of the year, hands down.” —Paste Magazine

“Funny, relatable, and oh-so-cute.” —Girls’ Life Magazine

“Relatable and funny, Dugan’s character dialogue and voice capture the awkward/messy/magical summer and keep both the characters and plot real and winning throughout this amusement park ride.” —Publishers Weekly

“Dugan’s debut has a clear and confident voice, and her characters are sympathetic in their desire for happiness and fear of change; the supporting cast members have their own fully-developed personalities without overwhelming the main storyline. Lou’s inner narration is funny, clear, and emotional… A fun romantic comedy that evokes the pleasures of summertime.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Lou’s energetic, readable voice makes her a sympathetic character even when, or especially when, she is confessing her flaws. Readers looking for a frothy summer read won’t regret this.” —BCCB
