A smart, funny and fast-paced read which addresses a near-universal teen experience. Can Sadie overcome her unrequited crush for her best friend, for good having discovered he's fallen for another girl? Heartbroken, Sadie realises she's finally had enough and that it's time for a total Garrett detox. Aided by a barista job, an eclectic crew of new friends (including hunky chef Josh) and a customized self-help guide, Sadie embarks on a summer of personal reinvention full of laughter, meltdowns...and a double shot of love. With her trademark wit and wisdom Abby McDonald serves up an hilarious new novel.


Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald

Sadie is in love with Garrett Delaney. But Garrett has been oblivious to Sadie's feelings for him ever since he sauntered into her life and wowed her with his passion for Proust, not to mention his deep blue eyes. For two long, painful years, Sadie has been Garrett's constant companion, sharing his taste in everything from tragic Russian literature to art films to '80s indie rock. When Garrett leaves for a summer literary retreat, Sadie is sure that the absence will make his heart grow fonder - until he calls to say that he's fallen in love with another girl!
