The Girl Least Likely by Katy Loutzenhiser 
Expected publication: June 29th 2021

Synopsis (via Goodreads): To All the Boys meets The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (with a dash of Dumplin’) in this funny, romantic, and heartfelt coming of age story about a teen stand-up comic learning how to be her truest self, from the author of If You’re Out There.

Gretchen has always been more of a “least likely” than a “most likely” kind of girl. So how does she somehow find herself living out every trope from her favorite rom-coms…?

The Best Friend Crush: Why is it suddenly so hard to act normal around her childhood BFF, Samuel? Must be time for a—

Makeover(!): Black leather pants and some red lipstick are apparently enough to lend Gretchen the bravado to do an impromptu set at a comedy club, and catch the eye of—

The Roguish Bad Boy: Jeremy, the alluring young comic who thinks her name is Sabrina. It might just be—

The Perfect Cover: A funny-girl alter-ego that frees Gretchen to explore who she really is—and what she really wants. But as rom-coms have taught her, leading a double life can only last so long.

I'm actually reading this one right now and really loving it! I can totally relate to Gretchen and what she's going through, and the stand-up comedy makes this one a blast to read. Lots of  "LOL" moments for sure!

  1. I am nowhere near my June ARCs, but I am glad to hear you are enjoying Girl Least Likely To, because I will be reading in May or so. I liked the author's last book, and this one sounds lighter, which appeals to me even more.

    1. I started reading it the day I was approved! I love stand-up comedy, but I've never seen it used as a setting for a YA book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did when you get to it. :) I haven't read the author's other book, but I definitely want to now!

  2. I'm starting to get bac to comics... :)

    1. Dude, I am forever catching up on comics. I've made significant progress, but ugghhh. I feel like they're judging me. ;)

  3. Hopefully I'll have some graphic novels to talk about soon so I can jump back on the My Weekly Pull feature. The publisher sent me Thirsty Mermaids, but the ink smell was so potent it was making my eyes sting! I put it on our enclosed back porch to air out, ha ha. ๐Ÿ˜…

    Oh! I didn't know Seanan McGuire was involved in comics. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    1. I've been trying to stay on top of the My Weekly Pull posts, despite being garbage at posting anything else these days. ;) So... I have no idea what Thirsty Mermaids is, but the title alone has me curious! You'll definitely have to let me know how it is! Weird that the ink smell was overwhelming. ๐Ÿค”
