Shirlene Obuobi is a Ghanaian-American Cardiology fellow. She also draws comics under the moniker ShirlyWhirl, M.D. Her comics have gained a steady following on Instagram and Facebook, international recognition in the medical community, and have been featured in The Lancet, Axios, Student Doctor Network, and more. In her spare time (ha!) she teaches zoom workshops on creative expression for medical students. On Rotation is her debut novel.
On Rotation is such a smart, fun rom-com. What I loved
most about the book was the fact that the love interest was
just as delightfully flawed and three-dimensional as the heroine,
and that made me root for their happy ending all the more.
Also, the sex scenes? So good. You're going to love this one *

Fresh, romantic, and hilarious... On Rotation is whip-smart and sharply observed, filled with laugh-out-loud moments while not shying away from heavier issues. With On Rotation, Shirlene Obuobi establishes herself as a writer to watch * Brenda Janowitz, author of THE LIZ TAYLOR RING *
Humor and honesty leap off the pages of this addictive read. A binge-worthy romance with a hilarious and relatable heroine that will steal your heart from the first sentence * Jane Igharo, author of TIES THAT TETHER *
Smart, funny, and utterly swoonworthy, On Rotation is a layered and deeply compassionate novel of navigating life and love in your twenties. Angie Appiah will be your new best friend * Grace D. Li, author of PORTRAIT OF A THIEF *
Obuobi's debut features a winning cast of characters who alternatively help and hinder Angie, whose first-person narration is warm and relatable . . . With a strongly depicted Chicago setting, Obuobi ably navigates plot twists and emotional turns while addressing millennial angst and issues facing Black women (working twice as hard to get half as far). A funny, emotional page-turner that will have readers rooting for Angie. * Booklist Starred Review *
On Rotation is a brilliant debut rom-com . . . It's relatable and LOL funny * Cosmopolitan *
