I admit I’ve not yet read Well That Was Awkward by Rachel Vail but just look at that cute cover. And the title! I’m very eager to read this one and find out what exactly is so very awkward.
Well That Was Awkward
By: Rachel Vail
Release Date: February 28th 2017
Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers
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.
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.

Rachel Vail is the award-winning author of more than 30 books for young people. As a theater lover, Rachel sees and reads as many plays as she can. Well, That Was Awkward was in part inspired by her love of the play Cyrano – another tale of secrets, wit, self-confidence, self-loathing, friendship, identity-hiding, and romance that blossoms between all the wrong people. Or does it?
Rachel lives in New York City with her husband, their two sons, and (like Gracie) a tortoise named Lightning.
