Publisher's Summary

Gracie has never felt like this before. One day, she suddenly can't breathe, can't walk, can't anything - and the reason is standing right there in front of her, all tall and weirdly good-looking: A. J.

But it turns out A. J. likes not Gracie but Gracie's beautiful best friend, Sienna. Obviously Gracie is happy for Sienna. Super happy! She helps Sienna compose the best texts, responding to A. J.'s surprisingly funny and appealing texts, just as if she were Sienna. Because Gracie is fine. Always! She's had lots of practice being the sidekick, second best.

It's all good. Well, almost all. She's trying.

Funny and tender, Well, That Was Awkward goes deep into the heart of middle school and finds that even with all the heartbreak, there can be explosions of hope and moments of perfect happiness.

Critic Reviews

"As per her usual blend of energy, wit, and genuine emotion, Vail has created a story that is at once delightfully gossipy, playfully ironic, and deeply moving." (BCCB, starred review)

"Heartwarming, funny, and tender ... Call it cute, call it clever - Vail fluently captures the spirit of today’s American middle-schoolers." (Booklist)

"Hilarious and heartfelt." (Kirkus Reviews)

I love this author!

I have all of Rachel’s books and I was so happy to see this book on audible. The narrator had me dead the whole time because the way they would literally say “hahaha” was so funny LMAO!

The sweetest little crush story

I loved this book and thought it was beyond adorable and at times sad. But the banter and middle school angst felt genuine.
