Description

Smart and unflinching, this #OwnVoices debut contemporary novel stars an ambitious college student who refuses to be defined by her central auditory processing disorder.

Edie Kits has a learning disability. Well, not a learning disability exactly, but a disability that impacts her learning. It isn't visible, it isn't obvious, and it isn't something she likes to advertise.

And for three semesters of college, her hard work and perseverance have carried her through. Edie thinks she has her disability under control until she meets her match with a French 102 course and a professor unwilling to help her out.

Edie finds herself caught between getting the help she needs and convincing her professor that she isn't looking for an easy out. Luckily for Edie, she has an amazing best friend, Serena, who is willing to stitch together a plan to ensure Edie's success. And then there's Hudson, the badly dressed but undoubtedly adorable TA in her French class who finds himself pulled into her orbit...

Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads, Meet Me in Outer Space is a sweet, heartachingly real story of love and college life by debut author Melinda Grace.

Praise for Meet Me in Outer Space from the Swoon Reads community:

"A smart romantic dramedy that retells common college experiences from a fresh and unique point of view. ... It will make you think and laugh. And you may learn a little bit of French along the way." --S.C. McMurray, reader on SwoonReads.com

"I can relate to Edie. I don't have CAPD but I have ADHD and that makes everything study related/ everyday functioning super hard. Reading on because this hit so close home." --Tara Olivia, reader on SwoonReads.com

Review quote

Praise for Meet Me in Outer Space

"I loved Edie from the very first misunderstood line right to the very satisfying ending. This book was not only fun to read but showed a set of unique characters that, as a high school English teacher, I think is lacking from most YA novels. ... I would love to have a copy of this book on my shelf right now for [my students] to grab. It has great humor with a strong storyline and touches on real issues that I think they should be exposed to in literature." --Devon.Renee, reader on SwoonReads.com
