Fangirl came out in paperback this week, and it turned out even cuter than I was expecting. (And I knew what to expect!) The best part is definitely the mint green sprayed edges. Only the first printing has these, so don’t sleep on it.


Inside, there are two full color illustrations — one brand new one by Mara Miranda-Escota and one by cover artist Noelle Stevenson that was previously only available in the UK edition. There’s also a new introduction written by me, reflecting back to why I wrote the book. (Back when Baz and Simon were just a glimmer in my eye.)

The paperback should be available in most bookstores that sell young adult books. If you’d like to order it from outside the U.S., your best bet is probably Wordery or Book Depository.

My publisher, Wednesday Books, is running a fun Instagram contest to celebrate the release. You can win an EMERGENCY DANCE PARTY T-shirt.


I still can’t believe it’s been five years since this book came out. Thank you for letting Cath and Levi and Simon and Baz (and me) onto your shelves 💛
