About the Author

She is also the author of Made You Up and Eliza Mirk's favorite, The Children of Hypnos, a biweekly serial novel posted on Tumblr and Wattpad. She also blogs about writing at


"Debut novelist Zappia presents readers with a wholly unreliable narrator, [but] the characters all seem authentic, thanks to Zappia's careful attention to detail." -- Booklist

"Alex is a funny, touching, determined, and smart character, and her story is complex and interesting. Fans of E. Lockhart's We Were Liars and Matthew Quick's Silver Linings Playbook will immerse themselves in this nuanced look at trying to live a "normal" life while coping with mental illness." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"The storytelling texture here recalls Andrew Smith and Sean Beaudoin...There are moments of genuine tragedy redeemed by the acceptance Miles and Alex find in each other amidst all of their imperfections; if love doesn't conquer all, it certainly makes the battles easier to bear. Readers...will enjoy this quirky trip." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Alex's sardonic voice and the rapid, Heathers-like dialogue will hold readers' interest." -- Publishers Weekly
