Description

From the award-winning author of Break and Teeth comes a raw and honest exploration of complicated identities in a novel about a girl living on the fringe of every fringe group in her small town.

Etta is tired of dealing with all of the labels and categories that seem so important to everyone else in her small Nebraska hometown.

Everywhere she turns, someone feels she's too fringe for the fringe. Not gay enough for the Dykes, her ex-clique, thanks to a recent relationship with a boy; not tiny and white enough for ballet, her first passion; not sick enough to look anorexic (partially thanks to recovery). Etta doesn't fit anywhere--until she meets Bianca, the straight, white, Christian, and seriously sick girl in Etta's therapy group. Both girls are auditioning for Brentwood, a prestigious New York theater academy that is so not Nebraska. Bianca might be Etta's salvation...but can Etta be saved by a girl who needs saving herself?

Not Otherwise Specified is fun, sweet, sharp, smart and wonderfully heartfelt. Hannah Moskowitz's energetic prose leaps off the page and brings Etta's world to life. Don't miss out on it.--Courtney Summers, author of CRACKED UP TO BE and THIS IS NOT A TEST
