Product Details


“Charming, relatable and laugh-out-loud hilarious, My Eyes Are Up Here is a sparkling debut from my new favorite YA author, Laura Zimmermann. Her Greer Walsh is at once all of us and the most special of us. I wanted to hug her, give her a high five and sometimes throttle her, but I always, always rooted for her.”—Erin Hahn, author of You’d Be Mine and More Than Maybe

“My Eyes Are Up Here
is not only a smart and honest book about body positivity. It’s a funny and endearing read that will have you cheering for Greer Walsh, and celebrating the power of female friendship.”—Deb Caletti, National Book Award finalist and Michael L. Printz Honor medalist

“[S]mart, insightful and often very funny […] this novel perceptively explores the emotional toll experienced by teens who are self-conscious and feeling isolated about being different – and the liberation that comes with breaking free.”—Buffalo News

“By turns hilarious, heartbreaking and totally, completely honest, perfect for those who liked recent novels like Frankly in Love.”–

“Zimmermann’s debut may have captured my own experience in a way no one ever has before when it comes to being a girl with big boobs.”—Kelly Jensen for

★ “Wise and wry… An original, feminist, and timely first choice title for all libraries.”—SLJ, starred review

“Zimmerman’s debut has a witty, unabashedly honest voice.”—PW

“Zimmermann’s debut is both insightful and humorous, owing to a bright and funny yet self-deprecating narrator matched with brief chapters that capture Greer’s urgencies and insecurities. Girls who lament not having the perfect body will appreciate this novel, and girls who value their best friends will relate without hesitation. Rise up for girl power!” —Booklist 

“Many girls will resonate with this story of trying to learn to love your body and be comfortable with the skin you’re in. We are both so glad that this book exists and it brought about a lot of important, meaningful dialogue for us both. Highly recommended.”—SLJ’s Teen Librarian Toolbox
