    “A love story set against the backdrop of debilitating mental illness. . . . Infused with humor, self-doubt, and, eventually, self-acceptance.” —School Library Journal 
    Norah has agoraphobia and OCD. While using a stick to snag grocery bags left on the porch, she meets Luke. He’s sweet and funny, and he just caught her fishing for groceries. Because of course he did. 

    As their friendship grows deeper, Norah fears she’s being selfish. Doesn’t Luke deserve a normal girl—one who isn’t so screwed up? 


    Readers will fall in love with Norah in this deeply engaging portrait of a teen struggling to find the strength to face her demons.

    “A love story set against the backdrop of debilitating mental illness, this debut novel is a poignant work, infused with humor, self-doubt, and, eventually, self-acceptance.” 



    “Thoughtful, heartbreaking, and at times laugh-out-loud funny, Louise Gornall tells a fearless story from the perspective of someone who doesn’t yet recognize her own bravery. . . . unflinchingly honest.”
