About the Author

Rebecca Barrow writes stories about girls and all the wonders they can be. A lipstick obsessive with the ability to quote the entirety of Mean Girls, she lives in England, where it rains a considerable amount more than in the fictional worlds of her characters. She collects tattoos, cats, and more books than she could ever possibly read. You can visit her online at www.rebecca-barrow.com.

Reviews

"In both its humor and in its aching, You Don't Know Me but I Know You is the most honest book I've read in ages."--Emery Lord, author of The Start of Me and You and When We Collided
"Both relentlessly honest and relentlessly hopeful, You Don't Know Me but I Know You stands out as a book that cares profoundly about the power of friendship and the thrill of getting to know yourself. Above all else, it's a testament to the bravery, brightness, and beauty of teenaged girls."--Corey Ann Haydu, author of OCD Love Story and Life by Committee
"You Don't Know Me but I Know You is a heartfelt, powerful examination of family: the one we're born to, the one we choose, and the one that chooses us. Rebecca Barrow's novel feels all at once heartbreaking, hopeful, and true."--Janet McNally, author of Girls in the Moon
"Honest, nuanced, and achingly authentic, You Don't Know Me but I Know You is both sensitive and unflinching in its portrayal of life-shattering choices and their aftermaths. It's populated with strong female friendships that feel more like a sisterhood."--Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts
"Audrey's emotions swing wildly; she candidly portrays the all-consuming and delicate nature of her situation and the choice she faces. Debut author Barrow opts for realism over a scared-straight approach to teen pregnancy, which readers will appreciate."--Publishers Weekly
"It's unfair to call this simply a book about teen pregnancy... Barrow has crafted soulful, complex characters who will resonate with readers who've had to contemplate the weight of their decisions upon their futures and themselves."--Booklist
"The debut author adeptly portrays the weight of the decision-making process and its effect on all of the characters... This is a good read for realistic fiction fans who enjoy YA with complicated relationships."--School Library Journal
"[Barrow] steadily resists clichΓ© and tired tropes all the way to the novel's deeply felt, unflinching conclusion. This compelling, closely observed debut charts its appealing characters' difficult journey with clarity and honesty."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
