Congrats to Three Rooms Press and to Meagan Brothers, author of WEIRD GIRL AND WHAT’S HIS NAME (Three Rooms Press Trade Paperback Original: October 13, 2015; $15.95). Not only did Booklist give her forthcoming YA novel a starred review, they also picked the book as their lead review of the day, today (August 13, 2015).
You may be a fan of Meagan Brothers already. Her previous book, Supergirl Mixtape, was an indy hit. Her new YA novel is a coming-of-age story for the twenty-first century. In the tiny podunk town of Hawthorne, North Carolina, high school geeks Lula and Rory share everything— a love of sci-fi and fantasy, a questioning of their sexuality, resentment toward the parents that abandoned them, an obsession with old X-Files episodes, and the feeling that they’ll never quite fit in. Lula and Rory have no secrets from each other; after all, she knows he’s gay, and he understands why she worships the mother that walked out on her.
