DEBUT Lucy Galindo is a well-loved guidance counselor at Harview High School, but due to her depression, anxiety, and ADHD, she feels as if she’s ugly, barely tolerated, and a burden on those around her. She’s been masking her struggles for years, even creating an anonymous persona online as @TheMissGuidedCounselor, where she sounds as if she has her life together—the exact opposite of how she actually feels. Aldrich Fletcher is the new (hot) history teacher at Harview, and he’s having the worst first day ever. Fortunately, he can rely on DMs with @TheMissGuidedCounselor to cheer him up. They’ve never exchanged real names or even spoken on the phone, but to Fletcher, she’s his best friend. Soon he needs her advice on asking out his school’s guidance counselor, whom he can’t get out of his mind. When Fletcher realizes that Lucy is his online friend, it changes everything. In this romantic comedy, the protagonists are incredibly realistic and relatable, Lucy’s neurodivergence is treated sympathetically, and the story balances humor and emotional depth.
VERDICT Unputdownable; will leave readers clamoring for more.
