About the Author
Robbie Couch writes young adult fiction. If I See You Again Tomorrow, his New York Times bestselling third novel, has received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and the Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books. Robbie's debut, The Sky Blues, was a Barnes & Noble Young Adult Book of the Year finalist and Junior Library Guild selection. Robbie is originally from small-town Michigan and lives in Los Angeles.
"Blaine for the Win celebrates flighty, unserious gay boys everywhere! As one myself, I've never felt more seen. Robbie Couch has gifted us with an irresistible, lion-hearted rom-com about love, inspiration, and toxic queer optics. Don't miss this confection!"--Adam Sass, award-winning author of Surrender Your Sons
"Packed with empowering and relatable moments, with the perfect balance of humor and heart, Blaine for the Win has my vote."--Rachael Lippincott, New York Times bestselling author of Five Feet Apart
"A wonderful novel about the importance of being yourself and having friends who will follow you no matter where you go. Blaine and his fun-loving, absolute powerhouse circle of friends had me cheering for them the whole time. I'd vote for Blaine!"--Loan Le, author of A Pho Love Story
"Blaine's conflict between remaining true to himself versus becoming a seemingly more mature, serious person forms a relatable backdrop to the plot....A good read with a clear message about authenticity."--Kirkus Reviews "January 26, 2022"
"Couch (The Sky Blues, 2021) has written an engaging novel with likable characters and a clever altogether winning read."--Booklist
"With panache and an upbeat tone, Couch (The Sky Blues) delivers a lighthearted rom-com pastiche that updates its source material, tackling issues of mental health and self-care, socioeconomic divides, and staying true to oneself."--Publisher's Weekly "March 2022"
"Inspired by Legally Blonde, this novel ultimately shrugs off the restrictions of being a mere adaptation to offer a clever, fun, original story full of heart, awkwardness, and laughs...this is a clear win for readers who like their heroes loveable and imperfect."--BCCB
