Saving Francesca meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower in this stunning, unflinchingly honest debut about finding friends, finding yourself, and discovering what really matters.

My name is Tori Spring. Sometimes I hate people. This is probably very bad for my mental health.

Tori is generally disappointed in people. She’d rather sleep or spend time on her blog than have to talk to anyone. Until a mysterious online group called Solitaire launches a series of pranks across her school, and she meets Michael Holden, who is irrepressibly cheerful and determined to be her friend. As Solitaire’s pranks begin to escalate, Tori has to face the world she’s tried so hard to ignore—only to discover that just when you’ve decided not to care about anything, the right person can change everything.

Debut author Alice Oseman has brought to life a vivid, clever, and heartfelt portrayal of what it’s like to be a teenager today, in an outstanding contemporary novel that will speak to fans of Melina Marchetta, Stephen Chbosky, and Rainbow Rowell.

Quotes & Awards

  • Catcher in the Rye for the digital age.”

    Times (London)

  • “Oseman proves herself a clever, witty writer, and she effectively shows how angry or sad ‘nice’ teens can be, as well as how the Internet has infiltrated pretty much every aspect of life. Her sophomore effort will be worth watching for.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Sixteen-year-old Victoria ‘Tori’ Spring is the personification of angst, slowly slipping, day by day, into the depths of despair…Told in the first person, Tori’s wry voice and dark humor provide a counterpoint to her descent into depression. Nineteen-year-old author, Oseman, opens a frightening window onto life as a teen in today’s world…A fascinating debut from an author to watch.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The most honest and authentic account of modern teenage life that you’ll read this year…outstanding contemporary fiction with appeal to fans of John Green.”

    Bookseller

  • “Sixteen-year-old Tori Spring is full of angst over her brother, her isolation, and her confusion about new student Michael Holden. Narrator Jayne Entwistle does a fantastic job conveying the drama. In her British accent, Entwistle keeps to a slow, even pace that reflects Tori’s disinterest in life, though at times a bit of excitement breaks through. As the story takes on many YA issues—including depression, eating disorders, and OCD, Entwistle’s subdued tone lends weight to these moments.”
