Sep 29, 2021 | Author news, News & Articles

Alex Adsett Literary is beyond excited to announce that Wakefield Press has acquired world rights to Jodi McAlister’s YA rom-com LIBBY LAWRENCE IS GOOD AT PRETENDING.

Wakefield Press says:

This sparkling, archly witty campus novel places its sensible heroine, Libby, at the high-drama heart of an amateur theatre production of Much Ado About Nothing, and explores authenticity, friendship and the trickier emotional aspects of sex and romance – all within a rollicking plot. And it skillfully critiques and subverts romantic tropes along the way, from the muddying of sex and power in the #metoo era to when romantic pursuit becomes stalking.

LIBBY LAWRENCE IS GOOD AT PRETENDING is scheduled for a May 2022 release. We cannot wait to share this wonderful story with the world!
