Praise

A refreshingly diverse cast of characters…. This book is for anyone who’s ever attended high school, had a crush, gotten news they weren’t prepared to deal with, or learned that someone close to them isn’t quite who they thought they were—in short, for everyone.” —Booklist

“As funny as it is poignant… Winnie’s story is handled with authenticity and heart. The deft movement between laughter and tears will appeal to fans of John Green.” — SLJ

“A touching look into one girl’s high school experience as she seeks the funny moments even in the midst of tragedy. Charming and affecting. —Kirkus Reviews

“Charming, heartbreaking, and ultimately life-affirming, Rubin captures Winnie’s verve and heart with honesty and wit.” —Publishers Weekly

“Realistically portrays the balancing act between seriousness and humor for a family more comfortable with the latter.” —The Horn Book 

“Crying Laughing 
walks the delicate line between comedy and tragedy without faltering once; a sharp-witted take on how humor can exist—and be a source of strength—even in the saddest moments.”
—Ariel Kaplan, author of We Are the Perfect Girl and We Regret to Inform You
 
A must-read for comedy fans, aspiring artists, and anybody who’s feeling like life’s just not fair sometimes. Cause it isn’t, but that’s okay—and it’s even sometimes hilarious.”
—Naomi Ekperigin, stand-up comedian/writer, 2 Dope Queens and Broad City
 
Crying Laughing is funny, heartbreaking, and a love letter to comedy—and how it can save us.
—Amy Spalding, author of The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the Best Burger in Los Angeles)
