Product Description

John 'Corey' Whaley grew up in the small town of Springhill, Louisiana, where he learned to be sarcastic and to tell stories. He has a BA in English from Louisiana Tech University, as well as an MA in Secondary English Education. He started writing stories about aliens and underwater civilizations when he was around ten or eleven, but now writes realistic YA fiction. His debut novel Where Things Come Back won the Printz Medal, and his second book Noggin was a National Book Award Finalist.Sixteen year old Solomon has agoraphobia. He hasn't left his house in three years, which is fine by him. At home, he is the master of his own kingdom--even if his kingdom doesn't extend outside of the house.

Ambitious Lisa desperately wants to go to a top tier psychiatry program. She'll do anything to get in.

When Lisa finds out about Solomon's solitary existence, she comes up with a plan sure to net her a scholarship: befriend Solomon. Treat his condition. And write a paper on her findings. To earn Solomon's trust, Lisa begins letting him into her life, introducing him to her boyfriend Clark, and telling him her secrets. Soon, Solomon begins to open up and expand his universe. But all three teens have grown uncomfortably close, and when their facades fall down, their friendships threaten to collapse as well.A heartwarming, hilarious and thought-provoking novel about trust, love, friendship and why it's okay to be different.Accessible, fast paced, I'll be thinking about this book for months maybe years from now.At a time when young adult literature is actively picking away at the stigma of mental illness, Whaley carves off a healthy chunk with style, sensitivity and humor.... ELECTRIFYING.TENDER AND FUNNY.Chapters... brim over with WARM, WITTY, AUTHENTIC dialogue.... Readers will easily come to care about these bright, wonderfully nerdy, flawed characters.Whaley again tackles heavy, heady topics with a light touch, populating his PERCEPTIVE AND QUICK-WITTED story with endearing, believably flawed teens.A LOGICAL CHOICE for Whaley's fans, Trekkies, and sensitive readers of all stripes.Whaley... CHALLENGES EASY CATEGORIES OF SAVIOR AND VICTIM - and of mental health and illness.Destined to be ONE Of THE MOST BUZZED-ABOUT NOVELS OF SUMMER 2016 and beyond.Each of John Carey Whaley's novels has this kind of substance and realness that completely sets them apart from all other books on the market... HIGHLY ILLOGICAL BEHAVIOUR is, OVERALL, A HEARTWARMING AND BEAUTIFUL COMING-OF-AGE STORY.With plenty of geekery, CHARMING repartee, and fairly realistic teen drama, this will have wide appeal among readers of contemporary fiction.A HIGHLY ANTICIPATED book we've been waiting for since the day we finished Noggin.Another RAW, FUNNY, AND UNFORGETTABLE read from Whaley won't leave you disappointed.A CHARMING, HEARTWARMING, AND PROFOUND AFFIRMATION OF THE IMPORTANCE OF CONNECTION.HILARIOUS AND WARM AND POIGNANT, ALL AT THE SAME TIME.You will laugh, you may cry - and YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO PUT THIS BOOK DOWN.
