Product description

Review

“This book is funny, empowering, and romantic, without downplaying the role of platonic friendships. And to the fat girls who are sidelined in almost every romantic comedy? It’s a love letter.” ―Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

"The Summer of Jordi Perez is a confectionary delight. From lovely romantic date nights to secret makeout sessions to utterly relatable friend drama, this is the happy queer-girl romance I've been longing for since I knew enough to long for happy queer-girl romance." —Robin Talley, New York Times bestselling author of Lies We Tell Ourselves

"This book is the queer, fat girl rom-com of my dreams! Plus-size fashion, a fat girl falling in love, nuanced friendships, and cheeseburgers! Did I mention cheeseburgers?" —Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin'

"You'll want to go shopping with Abby. You'll obsessively need to sample every cheeseburger in town. You might even plan a foodie-fashion-fun times vacation in L.A. But most importantly, you'll fall in love with The Summer of Jordi Perez. Just like I did." —Gretchen McNeil, author of Ten and I'm Not Your Manic Pixie Dream Girl

"Amy Spalding is the funniest YA contemporary writer out there." —Hey YA Book Riot Podcast

[*] “Funny, full of heart, and refreshingly free of a weight-loss arc.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Abby’s journey is a vehicle for highlighting the dangers of negative self-perception in any relationship or endeavor. . . Finally able to appreciate her talents, she discovers support and care rather than criticism. Shopping, humor, and summer romance add to the appeal of the story.” ―VOYA

“Sweet and delightful.” ―School Library Journal

"A deceptively fun and breezy novel that gracefully delineates the difference between dreaming about a relationship and actually having one. . . . The story moves along effortlessly. This is a book you don’t want to miss a word of. . . . A treat with a heroine who’s not easily forgotten." ―Foreword Reviews

"It’s about the painful fizzy joy of a new crush, about the solidity and support we get from platonic friendships, about feeling lost when family dynamics change." ―Leila Roy, feature for Kirkus Reviews

Review

"This is easily one of the funniest YA novels you'll read all year - maybe ever."―Paste on The New Guy

"Spalding excels at creating flawed characters whose own issues and mistakes propel the plot forward...this book will appeal to those who want a gentle high school drama with a touch of romance."―School Library Journal on The New Guy

"Amy Spalding has a knack for capturing the messiness of family in a way that feels as familiar and comforting as a pair of perfectly worn jeans or favorite pair of flip flops."―Trish Doller, author of Where the Stars Still Shine on Ink is Thicker Than Water

“Spalding's funny and charming writing will have readers flying through the pages. Readers will absolutely connect with these lovable characters.”―Buzzfeed
