Happy Release Day!!

Congratulations to Alexis Bass whose debut novel, Love and Other Theories, is out today!

Chances are you may have already heard me talk about this fantastic novel. It's one of those books that feels achingly real. When I first read the manuscript, I was absolutely obsessed with it, and I was terrified that I would lose Alexis to another agent. Thankfully I didn't. 

And now, I'm not the only one talking about how amazing this book is:

“Warning: Bass’s debut novel will ignite ALL your feelings!” (Wendy Higgins, New York Times bestselling author of the Sweet Evil trilogy)

“I loved LOVE AND OTHER THEORIES. Alexis Bass writes a compelling critique of the ways society expects girls to behave in their relationships, the lies girls tell each other--and themselves--to keep from getting hurt, and, when all is said and done, how only the heart knows the truth.” (Kristin Halbrook, author of Nobody But Us and co-founder of YA Highway)

“Alexis Bass masterfully captures all the complexities of high school relationships. A lovely debut.” (Amanda Maciel, author of Tease)

“A bold debut that authentically captures the frenzy of love, lust, and senior year of high school!” (Julie Murphy, author of Side Effects May Vary)

“Careful, subtle and aching. ” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Love and Other Theories challenged my assumptions, dared me to thinkdifferently and burrowed into my heart. A heart-achingly beautifulstory about whether it is better to protect your heart or to take thebiggest risk of all.” (Daisy Whitney, author of The Mockingbirds)

In her debut novel, Bass provides honest, incisive, and sometimes uncomfortable insights into the complicated intersections of friendship and romance, the ways sex can be wielded as a weapon, and the measures some teens take to protect themselves from pain. (Publishers Weekly)
