She likes many more things than she dislikes so won't list them all here.

Reviews

"One part Judy Blume, one part Amy Schumer, Gimme Everything You Got is incredibly warm, bracingly frank, and laugh-out-loud hilarious. I didn't want the game to end." -- Katie Cotugno, New York Times bestselling author of 99 Days

"Reading this book is like staying up all night with your coolest friend, trading secrets and underlining the sexy parts in grocery store paperbacks. It's a fearless, funny feminist manifesto--don't miss it." -- Mary McCoy, Printz Honor-winning author of I, Claudia

"Palmer writes Susan's frank first-person narration with verve and wit and handles several story lines with grace. Susan deals with changing friendships, gets soccer tips from a neighborhood boy, handles her father's remarriage, and experiences 1970s-era sexism and feminism firsthand, but each thread feels essential and tightly developed. A delight." -- Booklist (starred review)

"Palmer's feminist novel offers readers a look at an earlier time in a genuine, humorous voice that feels thoroughly modern." -- Publishers Weekly

"Frank and funny. For teens ready for Susan's awkward and authentic appetites, this is a suitable feminist manifesto." -- School Library Journal

"Packed with humor and heart. A sassy yet sweet girl-power tale that transcends time." -- Kirkus Reviews
