One of BookBub’s 23 Best Books of Summer 2022
One of BookBub’s 14 Books Our Readers Loved in July

“Heartfelt, hilarious, and hugely entertaining, In Her Boots will keep you turning pages. Quickly.” —Zibby Owens, Good Morning America

“Heart-warming and complicated and uplifting. I couldn’t put it down. Even though I usually prefer books with supernatural goats that eat people.” –Jenny Lawson, author of Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things and Broken (In the Best Possible Way)

“Funny, heartfelt and un-put-downable, In Her Boots is the perfect read and Rhett/Maggie is the exact heroine we all want to be—Strong, vulnerable and totally relatable. Going home shouldn’t be this tough or this entertaining.” —Susan Mallery, author of The Stepsisters

“Witty, charming, and utterly unputdownable, In Her Boots is the perfect reminder that living life on our own terms might just be what it’s all about. Once again, KJ Dell’ Antonia has knocked it out of the park with a story that will work its way right into readers’ hearts.” —Kristy Woodson Harvey, author of Under the Southern Sky

“[A] lively tale…Dell’Antonia offers an affecting take on damaged relationships, while keeping things light with descriptions of spunky farm animals and the quirks of rural life. The author’s fans will love this.” —Publishers Weekly

“What can be better than a book that surprises and delights you on every page and yet at the same time speaks so clearly to the familiar joys—and challenges—of friendship, family, and self-discovery?…You’ll gobble this one up and then push it on your best friend—and she’ll love you for it!” —Kelly Harms, author of The Seven Day Switch

In Her Boots is such a charming, funny, original story that I wished it were a blanket I could wrap myself in. Rhett is a unique heroine, the likes of which I haven’t come across in contemporary fiction before, and I felt like I was tagging along with a close friend as I went along on her journey. KJ Dell’Antonia is a fabulous writer and In Her Boots is expertly plotted and full of the perfect little details that make a book sing.” —Elyssa Friedland, author of Last Summer at the Golden Hotel

“Both peppy and heartfelt, In Her Boots is a tender page-turning romp about running from both your past and your truth, only to discover that, just like real-life, you can only run for so long before it’s time to turn back home.” —Allison Winn Scotch, author of Cleo Mcdougal Regrets Nothing

In Her Boots is a modern, big-hearted, laugh-out-loud funny novel that reminds us that the only way to find true connection, friendship and belonging is to fully be ourselves. A joy to read from page one all the way to the very end.” —Louise Miller, author of The Late Bloomers’ Club and The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living

“Full of quirky twists and heartfelt humor, In Her Boots is a wildly entertaining page turner about forging your own path and finding your way home again.” —Virginia Kantra, author of Meg & Jo
