From the author of Today Tonight Tomorrow comes a magical romance in the vein of Groundhog Day about a girl forced to relive her disastrous first day of college—only to discover that her nemesis is stuck in the time loop with her.
Barrett Bloom is hoping college will be a fresh start after a messy high school experience. But when school begins on September 21st, everything goes wrong. She’s humiliated by the know-it-all in her physics class, she botches her interview for the college paper, and at a party that night, she accidentally sets a frat on fire. She panics and flees, and when she realizes her roommate locked her out of their dorm, she falls asleep in the common room.
The next morning, Barrett’s perplexed to find herself back in her dorm room bed, no longer smelling of ashes and crushed dreams. It’s September 21st. Again. And after a confrontation with Miles, the guy from Physics 101, she learns she’s not alone—he’s been trapped for months.
When her attempts to fix her timeline fail, she agrees to work with Miles to find a way out. Soon they’re exploring the mysterious underbelly of the university and going on wild, romantic adventures. As they start falling for each other, they face the universe’s biggest unanswered question yet: what happens to their relationship if they finally make it to tomorrow?
"A very funny book... Rom-coms need tears the way bread dough needs salt, and here the mixture strikes a perfect balance between sweet and savory."
—New York Times Book Review
“The Ex Talk is so many things: a banter-packed laugh-out-loud rom-com, a meditation on how grief shapes our lives and our love, an ode to the joys of public radio and podcasting, and an all-around exquisite romance . . . we'll call it a breath of fresh air.”
"That feeling you get when you curl up on the couch on a rainy Saturday, with a great book in one hand and a spiked hot chocolate in the other: that's the feeling you get when you read Weather Girl. This book is cozy, comforting, thought provoking, and it'll make you feel warm from the inside out."
—Jasmine Guillory, author of While We Were Dating
"Weather Girl is everything you could want in a romantic comedy. With nods to The Parent Trap and Set it Up, Rachel Lynn Solomon delivers a story that's funny, sweet, and oh-so-steamy. Alongside the swoon-worthy romance is an authentic, moving story about what it means to live with depression and how we learn to accept love even during our darkest days. Romance readers deserve honest, poignant depictions of mental health like this one."
—Alison Cochrun, author of The Charm Offensive
