Publisher Description

In Solitaire, Alice Oseman has brought to life a vivid, clever, and heartfelt portrayal of what it's like to be a teenager today. This stunning debut novel—which the Times (London) called "The Catcher in the Rye for the digital age"—is perfect for fans of Melina Marchetta, Stephen Chbosky, and Rainbow Rowell.

My name is Tori Spring. I like to sleep and I like to blog. Last year—before all that stuff with Charlie and before I had to face the harsh realities of exams and university applications and the fact that one day I really will have to start talking to people—I had friends. Things were very different, I guess, but that's all over now.

Now there's Solitaire. And Michael Holden. I don't know what Solitaire is trying to do, and I don't care about Michael Holden. I really don't.

  • “Catcher in the Rye for the digital age.”

    - Times (London)
  • “The most honest and authentic account of modern teenage life that you’ll read this year…outstanding contemporary fiction.”

    - Bookseller
  • “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
  • “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
  • “Oseman’s debut could put her among the great young adult fiction authors. Solitaire is a pleasure to read; Tori’s voice is incredibly relatable.”

    - VOYA
  • “Tori’s voice makes this story into a poignant yet blackly funny and even lively emotional journey. A deeply absorbing read.”

    - Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
  • “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.”
