Do you like Connecticut winters?  Crazy, rich twins?  Underage drinking?  Indoor pools?  Vintage dresses? Cute kittens? Corduroy blazers?  Elbow patches?  Bitchy best-friends? Drunk mothers?  Philandering dads? Girl-on-girl kissing?  Boy-on-girl kissing?  Then this book is for you!!

Out today!  Her and Me and You!


Also?!  Watch this:

Freda Payne, lip-synching unenthusiastically to her hit single, Band of Gold.  A song that has nothing to do with this book, or books in general, but I just really, really love it, and think you should too.  And, you know, today’s a celebration!  And doesn’t this song just sound so celebratory and upbeat?!

It’s not!  Its lyrics are super depressing!  But let’s buy books and dance along anyway!!
