Description

I'm never going outside again.

Mallory hasn't left the house in sixty-seven days--since the day her dad left. She attends her classes via webcam, rarely leaves her room (much to her brother's chagrin), and spends most of her time watching The X-Files or chatting with the always obnoxious BeamMeUp on New Mexico's premier alien message board.

But when she's shockingly nominated for homecoming queen, her life takes a surprising turn. She slowly begins to open up to the world outside. And maybe if she can get her popular jock neighbor Brad Kirkpatrick to be her homecoming date, her classmates will stop calling her a freak.

In this heartwarming and humorous debut, Mallory discovers first love and the true meaning of home--just by taking one small step outside her house.

Review quote

This is a charming take on high school--the friendships, the romance, and the snubs--that also tenderly explores mental illness and the stigmas that accompany it. A sweet and funny debut.--Booklist

. . . This YA version of The Shop around the Corner remains entertaining, and Mallory's quick wit, biting sarcasm, and sardonic narration give it bonus flair. . . Her descriptions of the panic when it does hit are dead on, though, and the very real pain she's in comes through with palpable intensity. -Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
