Weird Girl and What's His Name was my favourite read of the summer!
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. My favourite part of this novel was Lula's humour and inability to deal with her crush on her gay best friend Rory. I liked this element because it wasn't your typical romance, and it educated me about what it's like to be in that situation and how not to act. Throughout the book, I guarantee you will fall in love with these two hilarious sci-fi geeks as they uncover the mysteries of themselves, their families,and what they mean to each other. I would recommend this book to any fan of John Green or of the book All The Bright Places.

In the podunk town of Hawthorne, North Carolina, seventeen-year-old geeks Lula and Rory share everything--sci-fi and fantasy fandom, Friday night binge-watching of oldX-Files episodes, and that feeling that they don't quite fit in. Lula knows she and Rory have no secrets from each other; after all, he came out to her years ago, and she's shared with him her "sacred texts"--the acting books her mother left behind after she walked out of Lula's life. But then Lula discovers that Rory--her Rory, who maybe she's secretly had feelings for--has not only tried out for the Hawthorne football team without telling her, but has also been having an affair with his middle-aged divorcee boss. With their friendship disrupted, Lula begins to question her identity and her own sexual orientation, and she runs away in the middle of the night on a journey to find her mother, who she hopes will have all the answers. Meagan Brother's piercing prose in this fresh LGBT YA novel speaks to anyone who has ever felt unwanted and alone, and who struggles to find their place in an isolating world. Ages 14-up.
