About the Author

Annie Barrows is a middle-aged lady who doesn't talk very much, which is why none of the kids who hang out in her house noticed that she was writing down everything they said. She's like a ninja, except she's never killed anyone. Okay, okay, she's also the author of the Ivy + Bean books-remember them? They were fun!-and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. All of which were New York Times bestsellers, if you care about that kind of thing. www.anniebarrows.com

Reviews

"Barrows captures the highs and lows of her characters' emotional lives with remarkable feeling, revealing how even the most joined-at-the-hip BFFs inevitably have secrets and resentments. ...Spending time with these two is a lovely, low-key pleasure." -- New York Times Book Review "A charming novel about the daily ups and downs of school, love interests, friends, families, and social media. Barrows turns her keen observational eye toward teenagers, and the results are authentic and funny...Check out this book." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "In her first work for teens, Barrows writes a realistic story about girls growing up in a suburban California town. Char and Frankie hang out...and think about kissing, growing up, taking chances, and feeling awkward. ...readers will love [Charlotte's] brash honesty." -- Publishers Weekly "This innocently edgy but ultimately provocative novel...is about nothing and everything. ...Their search for meaning is palpable." -- San Francisco Chronicle "The `Nothing' girls have more going on than they would like. ...writing down your everyday experiences, whether in book, journal, or some other form can encourage even those people most bored with life to come out of their shell and discover truths that they never saw coming." -- YA Books Central "Barrows, author of the Ivy + Bean chapter book series, has a knack for female friendships, and Charlotte and Frankie are a memorable pair." -- The Horn Book
