Belly Up (Original)

Eva Darrows (Author)


There's a first time for everything.

First time playing quarters.

First time spinning the bottle.

First totally hot consensual truck hookup with a superhot boy whose digits I forgot to get.

First time getting pregnant.

Surprised you with that one, didn't I?

Surprised me, too. I'd planned to spend senior year with my bestie-slash-wifey, Devi Abrams, graduating at the top of my class and getting into an Ivy League college. Instead, Mom and I are moving in with my battle-ax of a grandmother and I'm about to start a new school and a whole new life.

Know what's more fun than being the new girl for your senior year? Being the pregnant new girl. It isn't awesome. There is one upside, though--a boy named Leaf Leon. He's cute, an amazing cook and he's flirting me up, hard-core. Too bad I'm knocked up with a stranger's baby. I should probably mention that to him at some point.

But how?

It seems I've got a lot more firsts to go.

"Darrows deft hand at creating healthy, positive friendships and family, as well as snarky, delightful dialogue, really shine in Belly Up. Which is a fancy way of saying I loved this book so much I could only make inarticulate squeeing noises while I read it and I want to steal all of Serendipity's friends and family. Do yourself a favor and read it now!" -Lish McBride author of Hold Me Closer, Necromancer

"The macabre black humor is spot-on, while the subverted tropes rework edgy nihilism into a sniffle-inducing recognition of humanity. Another smart, savage winner from the author of The Awesome." -Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on Dead Little Mean Girl

"With precise language that rings with sincerity and wit....Darrows' new YA novel is a seriously smart, funny, and empathetic look at how someone's manufactured exterior might be hiding inner turmoil, and ultimately advocates for looking past labels and categories." -Booklist on Dead Little Mean Girl

"Laugh-out-loud humor, and an excellently diverse cast of characters....A must read." -Jaye Robin Brown, author of Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruiton Dead Little Mean Girl
