Praise for Layoverland

“Plenty of laughs here, mixed deftly with meditations on what it means to be alive.” Booklist, starred review

“Bea is a terrific antihero, as if the naysaying comic relief in a teen movie got the spotlight instead of the pretty ingenue.” Kirkus Reviews

“While Bea’s story is set entirely in Layoverland, her journey to letting down her defenses in order to accept love moves beyond it.” Publishers Weekly

“Likable characters, a fully developed setting, and some witty banter and dialogue are the highlights of this novel.” School Library Connection 

“A lighthearted book about finding oneself and personal redemption.” —School Library Journal

“The romance with Caleb is sweet, but it’s this sibling relationship that gives Bea her depth, and her side-eying and hilariously biting comebacks are tempered by her real grief and loss.” —BCCB

Layoverland is perfectly Gabby Noone–hilarious, sharp, and smart, with a gooey warmth hiding inside. It’s a delightful book, and the brilliant beginning to what is sure to be an illustrious career.” —Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author of Modern Lovers and The Vacationers

“A cheeky take on the afterlife brimming with sass, angst, and heart.” —Christine Riccio, New York Times bestselling author of Again, but Better.

“Clever, charming, and unputdownable. A modern romantic comedy that’s both timely and timeless.” —Robyn Schneider, bestselling author of The Beginning of Everything

“It’s a testament to Noone’s skills that a story that’s sad and heartbreaking and all about death is also funny and inventive and wonderfully alive. Bea is the kind of smart and flawed character that you just want to hug, even if she’s a bit prickly around the edges. I loved her colorful Tim Burton-esque world.” —Goldy Moldavsky, New York Times bestselling author of Kill the Boy Band and No Good Deed
