"Meet Me in Outer Space" by Melinda Grace

Meet Me in Outer Space cover

Smart and unflinching, this debut contemporary novel stars an ambitious college student who refuses to be defined by her central auditory processing disorder.

Edie Kits has a learning disability. Well, not a learning disability exactly, but a disability that impacts her learning. It isn't visible, it isn't obvious, and it isn't something she likes to advertise.

And for three semesters of college, her hard work and perseverance have carried her through. Edie thinks she has her disability under control until she meets her match with a French 102 course and a professor unwilling to help her out.

Edie finds herself caught between getting the help she needs and convincing her professor that she isn't looking for an easy out. Luckily for Edie, she has an amazing best friend, Serena, who is willing to stitch together a plan to ensure Edie's success. And then there's Hudson, the badly dressed but undoubtedly adorable TA in her French class who finds himself pulled into her orbit...

Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads, Meet Me in Outer Space is a sweet, heartachingly real story of love and college life by debut author Melinda Grace.

Excerpt from review:

❝I read this book twice, first the very second I got my hands on it back in September (story to come later, probably) and then again this week in preparation for my review. Both times I loved seeing Edie, a character who has CAPD (Central Auditory Processing Disorder) (like me!) and is like the most ambitious character I’ve ever read about (unlike me). I loved how close she and her roommate/best friend Serena were. I loved that she knew what she wanted and she was doing everything she could to chase her dreams. I loved basically everything about this book!❞ - Kait Goodwin
