About the Author
Gretchen Schreiber grew up between the hills of Kansas and the hospitals of Minnesota, but now calls the hills of Los Angeles home. After getting her MFA from USC Film School, she works as a professional bookworm for Hello Sunshine, Reese Witherspoon's media company. She is always down to run away to Disneyland or a bookstore.

"Honest and heartfelt." - Paste Magazine

"Profoundly honest... authentic and moving. It's a story that needs to be told. Recommended." - School Library Journal

"Schreiber's writing comes from personal experience with VACTERL, and while serious medical illnesses could be treated as grim, Schreiber infuses the pain and conflict with hope, friendship, and a romantic interest--someone who can see the real Ellie." -Booklist, starred

"Told with sparkling wit and endless charm. I fell in love with Ellie Haycock! I think you will too. Either way.. she is totally fine." - Reese Witherspoon

"Gretchen Schreiber's writing is honest, raw, and funny. She seamlessly weaves a story of hurt and humor with beautiful prose and characters that already feel like old friends. With friendship, family, cute boys, and how to stop seeing yourself through the lens of other people's definitions, Ellie is the coming-of-age story everyone should read." - Kristin Dwyer, author of Some Mistakes Were Made

"Soul-deep and sharply poetic, Schreiber's debut deftly rewrites conventions with poignant detail. With resonant romance and an iconic central character, Ellie Haycock is Totally Normal is extraordinary." Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka, authors of Always Never Yours

"Featuring a cast of characters you can't help but fall in love with, Ellie Haycock is Totally Normal is whip-smart, sharply funny, and deeply poignant." - Kara McDowell, author of The Prince & the Apocalypse

"Schreiber employs witty banter and acerbic first-person narration to unravel complexities of disability identity as Ellie learns to self-advocate, redefines what 'normal' means to her, and reckons with how chronic illness can affect relationships with others and oneself." - Publishers Weekly

"Honest and illuminating." - Kirkus Review
