Description

"Jake Gerhardt's debut novel is sweet, knowing, and a super-fun read. Takes you right back to the awkwardness and earnestness of adolescence, with a lot of cringe and even more laughs." --Patton Oswalt, New York Times bestselling author, comedian, and actor They each have 33% chance with her, but she's 0% interested. Meet Sam, the comedian; Duke, the intellectual; and Chollie, the athlete. Their fates converge at Penn Valley Middle as each falls desperately for the enigmatic Miranda Mullaly--the girl who smiles like she means it, the girl who makes Christmas truly magic when she sings, the girl who...barely realizes her admirers exist! Small misunderstandings lead to big laughs, and beneath the humor, every attempt to win Miranda's favor becomes a compelling look at the larger world of each guy's life.

Review quote

PRAISE FOR ME AND MIRANDA MULLALY "Jake Gerhardt's debut novel is sweet, knowing, and a super-fun read. Takes you right back to the awkwardness and earnestness of adolescence, with a lot of cringe and even more laughs."
--Patton Oswalt, New York Times bestselling author, comedian, and actor "Gerhardt's light narrative touch is addictive . . . [Readers will] eat up this satisfying confection where all's fair in love and war."
--Booklist "A lively tale of misunderstandings and misguided attempts to get the girl. This is a strong purchase for middle school libraries that will circulate well."
--School Library Journal

"A comedy of errors meets coming-of-age story that will resonate with middle-grade readers who are wending their way through the tricky waters of school plays, basketball games, and first loves."
--Bay State Parent "As a middle school teacher who has seen many, many students come and go, I could completely see Miranda, Sam, Duke and Chollie! I've had students with all of their traits!"
--The O.W.L. "Full of humor, sweetness, authenticity, engaging storytelling, and likable characters . . . delightful and entertaining."
--Word Spelunking
