Praise For…

“This delightfully modern take on a classic story is both fun and funny, sexy and sex positive, and if all that’s not enough, I have two more words for you: Jane Austen.”
— Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay and We Are Inevitable

Fresh is a book I wish had existed when I was a teenager: frank, laugh-out-loud funny, and a refreshing (pun intentional) peek behind the intimidating curtain that separates high school and college. The best part? Our intrepid narrator, Elliot McHugh: messy, imperfect, sincere, hilarious, and warm—a character you will miss long after the book is over.”
— Veronica Roth, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Divergent series

“Margot Wood’s Fresh bubbles over with irreverence, humor, and heart, capturing teen spirit in all its incarnations and creating a new classic for a new generation.
— Danielle Paige, New York Times bestselling author

“Eliot McHugh is the bold, funny, and sex-positive friend you wish you had with you to help navigate freshman year of college.”
— Sara Farizan, author of Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel

I couldn’t stop reading! I was dying to know if Elliot would have a happy ending.”
— Abigail Hing Wen, New York Times bestselling author of Loveboat, Taipei

"Unabashedly sex-positive and queer. . .A fresh, funny, college-set, coming-of-age tale." 
— Kirkus Reviews

"Strong secondary characters, including Elliot’s precocious younger sister and her matter-of-fact RA, reveal Elliot’s strengths and flaws, and character discussions around consent and sexual discovery ring true." 
— Publishers Weekly

"Wood’s debut is fun, written in an effervescent voice that dares readers to take the risks Elliot does—and to fall in love with her along the way." 
— Booklist
