About the Author
Hayli Thomson lives in Sydney, Australia, and writes novels about candid characters for anybody who ever watched Jo March leap a fence and longed to be her best friend. Bizarrely, during her teen years, Hayli was afflicted with a "headache" every third Monday in September, when she was left with no option but to stay home from school and watch her favorite female comedians collect Emmys live on the other side of the world. The Comedienne's Guide to Pride is her debut YA novel. You can visit her online at

"A charmer with hidden depth."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Thomson's laugh-out-loud debut, buoyed by the teens' heartwarming romance and Taylor's sardonic, aspiring-comic voice, deftly intertwines the sometimes conflicting paths to chasing one's dreams and being oneself."
--Publishers Weekly

"[A] charming romance and heartwarming coming out journey. Taylor's humor and witty one-liners make for many laugh-out-loud moments."
--School Library Journal

"[A]n engaging, heartwarming story with plenty of nuanced characters [...] Once readers get a peek into the layers of Taylor's relationships with her friends and family, they will be won over."
--School Library Connection

"The Comedienne's Guide to Pride is witty and charming and real. With snappy dialogue and a sassy but loveable leading lady, it's guaranteed to brighten your day."
--Tobias Madden, author of Anything But Fine

"This book has everything I love in YA contemporary books: family struggles, a beautiful queer love story, and tremendously hilarious writing."
--Jamie Pacton, author of Lucky Girl

"Punchy, raw, and laugh-out-loud funny with a compelling voice and a vibrant cast of characters, Hayli Thomson perfectly captures the highs and lows of teenage self-discovery."
--Skye Quinlan, author of Forward March
