If you fell in love with The Art of Lainey or got hooked to Liars Inc., then maybe you are also anxiously waiting for Paula Stokes' latest book, Girl Against the Universe. To ease all our pains while waiting, Paula is here to takeover this post to talk about all things GATU. Take it away, Paula!


Girl Against the Universe will release on May 16, 2016. I am so excited to share this book with the world, and particularly with people who are struggling with PTSD, survivor’s guilt, anxiety, shyness, or people who just feel like the odds are stacked against them. Maguire’s story is full of struggles and triumphs, new friends and family bonds. Even if your life is totally peachy at the moment, there’s a good chance you’ll find Girl Against the Universe funny and inspiring. I hope you give it a try.

Here’s what some amazing authors had to say about the book:


“Filled with equal amounts of empathy, humor, and heart, Girl Against the Universe is an empowering story about finding the courage to piece your life back together, even when it feels irreparably broken.”
                        --Tamara Ireland Stone, NYT bestselling author of Every Last Word

“I loved this sweet, slow-burn romance. Sports fiction at its best!”
                        --Miranda Kenneally, bestselling author of Catching Jordan

“Romantic, honest, and deep, Girl Against the Universe is one of those books where I couldn’t believe that the characters were only a figment of the author’s imagination—they simply jumped off the pages with their beautiful flaws and hard-earned wisdom.”
                        --Sarvenaz Tash, author of The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love


"Absolute perfection. Completely magical. Girl Against the Universe is a poignant, beautiful story."                    --Ann Aguirre, NYT bestselling author of The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things

  1. I have a superstition like that of Emily in Pretty Little Liars, where she thinks things like "if a red car passes by within two minutes, then I..." I've actually developed that superstition from reading that series!
