amelia westlake is one of entertainment weekly’s 10 best young adult books of the year

The US edition of Amelia Westlake is one of Entertainment Weekly’s top 10 books of 2019.

Erin Gough gifts readers a social justice adventure with heart and humor in equal measure. Teacher’s pet Harriet Price and anti-establishment artist Will Everhart team up to create the fictional Amelia Westlake, a high school hoax who speaks truth to power. In a time where hope can feel in short supply, it’s a breath of fresh air to get a tale that examines privilege and how to foment meaningful change without ever losing sight of its own charms.
