A hilarious and vulnerable coming-of-age story about the thrilling new experience--and missteps--of a girl's freshman year of college
Some students enter their freshman year of college knowing exactly what they want to do with their lives. Elliot McHugh is not one of those people. But picking a major is the last thing on Elliot's mind when she's too busy experiencing all that college has to offer--from dancing all night at off-campus parties, to testing her RA Rose's patience, to making new friends, to having the best sex one can have on a twin-sized dorm room bed.
But she may not be ready for the fallout when reality hits. When the sex she's having isn't that great. When finals creep up and smack her right in the face. Or when her roommate's boyfriend turns out to be the biggest a-hole. Elliot may make epic mistakes, but if she's honest with herself (and with you, dear reader), she may just find the person she wants to be. And maybe even fall in love in the process . . . Well, maybe.
"Wood's debut is fun, written in an effervescent voice that dares readers to take the risks Elliot does--and to fall in love with her along the way."
"Strong secondary characters, including Elliot's precocious younger sister and her matter-of-fact RA, reveal Elliot's strengths and flaws, and character discussions around consent and sexual discovery ring true."
"Unabashedly sex-positive and queer. . .A fresh, funny, college-set, coming-of-age tale."Kirkus Reviews
"Margot Wood's Fresh bubbles over with irreverence, humor, and heart, capturing teen spirit in all its incarnations and creating a new classic for a new generation."
Danielle Paige, New York Times bestselling author
"Fresh is a book I wish had existed when I was a teenager: frank, laugh-out-loud funny, and a refreshing (pun intentional) peek behind the intimidating curtain that separates high school and college. The best part? Our intrepid narrator, Elliot McHugh: messy, imperfect, sincere, hilarious, and warm--a character you will miss long after the book is over."
