Well, That Was Awkward

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Gracie has never felt like this before.  One day, she suddenly can’t breathe, can’t walk, can’t anything—and the reason is standing right there in front of her, all tall and weirdly good-looking: A.J.
But it turns out A.J. likes not Gracie but Gracie’s beautiful best friend, Sienna. Obviously Gracie is happy for Sienna. Super happy! She helps Sienna compose the best texts, responding to A.J.’s surprisingly funny and appealing texts, just as if she were Sienna. Because Gracie is fine. Always! She’s had lots of practice being the sidekick, second-best.

It’s all good. Well, almost all. She’s trying.

Funny and tender, Well, That Was Awkward goes deep into the heart of middle school, and  finds that even with all the heartbreak, there can be explosions of hope and moments of perfect happiness.

From the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 13, 2017 – Before Gracie Grant was born, her older sister, Bret, was killed in an auto accident. As a result, Gracie's parents do everything in their power to make sure that Gracie, now 13, is never anything less than happy, a hard standard for Gracie to live up to. Whether at home or at school, Gracie insists that everything is fine, even when it isn't. Her social world gets complicated when she develops a crush on classmate AJ, who has a crush on Gracie's best friend Sienna. Gracie helps Sienna send AJ flirty text messages la Cyrano de Bergerac, and the results create even more drama. Luckily Gracie has Emmett, her other best friend, but then things get complicated with him, too. Vail (Unfriended) skillfully details the politics of middle school, mean girls, first dates, and best friends in this sensitive and funny coming-of-age story. But it's the storyline revolving around Gracie's sister and her parents and the resulting reflection on grief and the risks of loving another person that leads to the story's most profound and memorable moments. Ages 11 up.
