"Sasha's journey through grief and self-discovery amid the realities of living during the Trump presidency makes Schneider's latest a relatable and timely read. The lessons Sasha learns are relevant to teen experience. The family drama will pull at your heartstrings, the romance will warm your chest, and the fight between expectations and happiness will remind you what makes us all human." -- Booklist

"Perennial teen themes of fitting in, self-discovery, and truth-telling [with a main character that] is bisexual. For teen readers who are slowly uncovering their own truths, the pace might feel appropriate." -- Kirkus Reviews

"This is the book I wish I'd had when I was growing up. Robyn Schneider's thoughtful exploration of family, sexuality, and self is for anyone who's ever wondered who they are. You Don't Live Here will break your heart . . . and then put it back together again." -- Amy Spalding, bestselling author of The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the Best Burger in Los Angeles)

"A vulnerable, funny, and deeply human story about learning to be who you truly are. Sasha Bloom is close to the author's heart and you can tell. Schneider lovingly guides her through loss, isolation, first love, and self-acceptance with remarkable skill -- and plenty of hugs and high-fives along the way. Her best book yet." -- Tamara Ireland Stone, New York Times bestselling author of Every Last Word

"A heartfelt bisexual triumph, You Don't Live Here navigates grief and growing up with tenderness and charm. Sasha's high school journey is too real, and every emotion resonates." -- C.B. Lee, author of Not Your Sidekick

"In You Don't Live Here, Robyn Schneider writes about sexuality, self-discovery, and how to survive having a family with wit, charm, and remarkable tenderness. A perfect book for anyone who's ever found herself somewhere she never meant to end up-- and had to figure out how to make a home for herself there anyway. " -- Zan Romanoff, author of Grace and the Fever and Look

"This gorgeous story of romance and renewal nestled within the California coast is everything readers expect from Robyn Schneider and more, with a wonderfully human heart wrapped in witty, immersive writing. A uniquely personal novel from an inimitable voice." -- Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka, authors of Always Never Yours
