"A smart, endearing heroine; an enjoyable, entertaining story; and a hopeful, satisfying ending. Callie revisits the past with her ex to make sense of her present love life, making Typecast a fun mix of rom-com and women's fiction. Full of heartfelt charm, humor, and truth, Stein's debut is exactly the book I'd been craving. Perfect for fans of Marian Keyes and Josie Silver. A very delightful read!"-- Angela Terry, award-winning author of Charming Falls Apart and The Trials of Adeline Turner

A relatable journey fraught with growing pains, Typecast reminds us that in order to truly evolve--and find new, lasting love--we must first accept the past and ourselves."-- Nora Zelevansky, author of Competitive Grieving

"Insightful and bighearted and oh-so-deliciously page-turning, Typecast is like a road trip with friends, complete with detours and surprises and wildly satisfying moments. A perfect next read for fans of Camille Pagán and Kristy Woodson Harvey, Stein's Typecast is a don't-miss debut!"-- Amy Impellizzeri, award-winning author of I Know How This Ends and In Her Defense

"In lively, sparkling prose, Andrea J. Stein's Typecast offers keenly observed insights about family, friendship, and figuring out who you want to be when you grow up. Alternating between the heroine's past and her present, Typecast is a portrait of a woman rewriting her own future."-- Jenn Stroud Rossmann, author of The Place You're Supposed to Laugh
