Publisher's Summary

Perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli and Nina LaCour, this queer coming-of-age story from the author of The Falling in Love Montage is wry, multilayered, and unflinchingly honest.

Aideen has plenty of problems she can’t solve. But when she stumbles upon overachiever Meabh Kowalska having a full-blown meltdown, she sees one that she can actually fix. Meabh is desperate to escape her crushing pile of extracurriculars. Aideen volunteers to help - by pushing her down the stairs.

Problem? Solved. Meabh’s sprained ankle is the perfect excuse to ditch her overwhelming schedule. But when one of their classmates learns about their little scheme, more “clients” start asking for Aideen’s “help” - kicking off a semester of traded favors, ill-advised hijinks, and even an unexpected chance at love.

Fixing other people’s problems won’t fix her own. But it might be the push Aideen needs to start.

Fantastic book

It's rare to find a YA book that hits all the notes, but this one did. Every situation and every character seemed genuine, like people you would find in a school near you. And like all YA books, there were melancholy chapters and funny chapters. But this book actually made me laugh out loud more than once. Good grief, parts of the book were truly funny. In the end, I think this is the best YA book I've read in 2021.

Well written. Engaging. Liked it.

This might have some YA overtones but it’s for adults too. Very funny at times and poignant in places. Good ending. Highly recommend. Really liked it. Writing was intelligent and done well.

Don’t skip this book

It was a really awesome book! Again I’d do disclaimers in the beginning but other than that I loved it. It wasn’t just about YA romance. It had friendships, family issues, comedic relief and a lot heart. Seriously grab this book.

Not a problem at all!

I'm extremely glad to have another book from this author, her debut was so impressive that doing a follow up on the same level was gonna be hard.. She did it though, a different yet equally excellent YA coming of age story.
