"Sweet and earnest.... A worthwhile romance for any collection." --Booklist

Gonzales handily balances lively banter with somber issues, and the compelling will they/won't they storyline warmly illustrates a timeless truth: love is love is love." --Jenn Bennett, author of Alex, Approximately

"Wry but earnest, sweet but irreverent, heartbreaking but hopeful. With wit and authenticity, Only Mostly Devastated tells the story of what happens to a summer romance after summer is over. You'll be rooting for Ollie and his messy, wonderful friends from the first page to the last." --Hannah Capin, author of The Dead Queens Club and Foul Is Fair

"With razor-sharp wit, masterful comedic timing, and heaps of heart, these hilarious, lovable, heartbreakingly real characters make Only Mostly Devastated an instant hit and Sophie Gonzales one YA author to watch." --Julia Lynn Rubin, author of Burro Hills
