About the Author

Dana Schwartz is a writer whose work has appeared in the New Yorker, Mental Floss, the Guardian, the New York Observer, MTV News, and VICE. When she's not on Twitter as one of her parody accounts (@GuyInYourMFA and @DystopianYA), she's on Twitter as herself (@DanaSchwartzzz), sharing far too much personal information to ever pull off the Thomas-Pynchon-reclusive-author thing. She currently lives in New York City.

Reviews

"A joyous contemporary YA novel by journalist and Guy in Your MFA Twitter mastermind Dana Schwartz, And We're Off is a tale of travel, romance, and plenty of mother-daughter banter. That this will be the first book in a long line of delightful literature from wunderkind Schwartz seems inevitable and lovely." --Vulture (New York Magazine)

"And We're Off is sure to steal your heart and inspire some serious wanderlust."--HelloGiggles

"You haven't seen banter this quick--or a bond this tight--since Rory and Lorelai." --Seventeen

"[Schwartz] deftly mixes humor and tenderness....This funny, whimsical tome isn't easy to put down once you start." --Rolling Stone

"Funny, chock full of heart and wanderlust, And We're Off feels like traveling with a good friend. A fun debut with a superb voice." --Adi Alsaid, author of Let's Get Lost and Never Always Sometimes

"Fun, poignant, and funny. I want to travel with Dana, and after reading this, so will you." --New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Maureen Johnson

"An engaging and heartfelt book. Dana Schwartz truly knows what it is to be young and talented." --Mara Wilson, author of Where Am I Now?

"[Nora's] journey to understand who she is, both as a person and an artist, is rewarding, as is the evident love behind her grandfather's assignments and advice." --Publishers Weekly

"It's hard to beat a European holiday for vicarious fun. The up-to-the-minute details about travel in Europe make this an engaging, enjoyable, and even informational read." --Kirkus Reviews

"Nora's European adventures, very real fears, and endlessly entertaining narration keep this exploration of what it means to be a creator, a friend, and a daughter firmly grounded, and readers will be happy to come along for the ride." --Booklist

"...nicely balanced with dry humor, delightful description, and a little bit of naughty pleasure...A fun choice for summer reading shelves." --School Library Journal
