Just a week after the official release of Meagan Brothers’s Weird Girl and What’s His Name (Three Rooms Press, 978-1941110270), we’re ecstatic to share with you the reviews that have been rolling in. They all agree: this is the one book you need to buy this fall!

 “There have been a lot of noteworthy LGBT YA novels hitting the market lately, but Weird Girl and What’s His Name is one of the most complex and touching.” —Stylecaster

“Brothers’s pitch-perfect dialogue and well-polished prose make her an author to watch.”  —School Library Journal
“This is a novel that transcends the LGBTQ genre, and it holds universal lessons for all. It is reminiscent of Judy Bloom’s Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret and Tiger Eyes in the way it tackles somewhat taboo subjects within a smoothly written narrative. It has all the makings to become a classic of this generation.” —Foreword Reviews: 5 star review
“If you’re a fan of moving, emotionally complex books about identity and friendship, books like Will Grayson, Will Grayson or This Song Will Change Your Life or Fangirl, you’ve got to try this!” —YA Romantics
“This new LGBT YA novel is as gripping as it is heartfelt.” —Brit + Co’s “The Best 12 Books Coming Out This October
“With it’s adorable teen romance, humour, and countless adventures that lead Lula and Rory to finding themselves, Weird Girl and What’s His Name was a compelling read that I couldn’t put down.” —Two Thumbs up Review, McNallyRobinson.com
“Brothers burrows deep into her characters’ hearts and minds as they struggle with unruly sexual urges, family issues, and their own ruptured friendship. A welcome addition to the growing canon of LGBTQ-themed teen literature.” —Chronogram
“What really shines in Meagan Brothers’ novel is the voices and the characters; they feel authentically human and vibrant and you’ll be glad to spend 300-odd pages with the both of them.” —Bustle
“Say hello to one of my new benchmarks for great YA fiction. Weird Girl and What’s His Name is absolutely wonderful, heartbreaking, and utterly engaging stuff.” —Manhattan Book Review
“Readers who enjoy coming-of-age stories will enjoy this powerful novel.”—Buzzfeed
