“[In U Up?] our modern, housebound, locked-down era has transformed an often vexing question — “Why doesn’t this person I care about text me back?” — into the stuff of existential nightmares … feels very much of this moment.” The New York Times Book Review

“This heady, sexy novel is filled with the carefree wildness of youth, with an added metaphysical bonus. Eve’s voice is enticing and compelling, and readers will be carried along with her as she learns more about herself than she ever planned.” —Booklist

“A poignant . . . story of grief, ghosts, and friendship . . . Disabato makes [the characters] come alive on the page and in her texts.” —Publishers Weekly 

“Utterly bewitchinga dark, paranoid, mordantly funny LA noir that highlights Catie Disabato’s wonderfully vivid and skewed vision of our contemporary society.  Disabato is one of my favorite young authorsa truly original voice!” —Dan Chaon,  author of Ill Will

“Disabato is a generational voice and a voice of a generation. U Up is smart, sharp, wise, and wrenching in equal measure . . . An enviable book by an enviable writer. I loved it.” —Ivy Pochoda, author of These Women

“What a terrific, frisky novel! U Up? . . . transcends genre, and is such fun to read. Disabato’s writing is at once so smooth and sharp that you don’t immediately realize it’s cut you—and deeply. She is a remarkable talent.” —Edan Lepucki, author of Woman No. 17

“Disabato captures LA’s nightlife (and daylife!) in all of its beauty, impropriety, and conspicuous consumption as if she were the Eve Babitz of the Instagram Age. U Up? is a delight.” —Maris Kreizman, author of Slaughterhouse 90210
