One HELLO? can change a life. One HELLO? can save a life.

Tricia: A girl struggling to find her way after her beloved grandma's death.
Emerson: A guy who lives his life to fulfill promises, real and hypothetical.
Angie: A girl with secrets she can only express through poetry.
Brenda: An actress and screenplay writer afraid to confront her past.
Brian: A potter who sets aside his life for Tricia, to the detriment of both.

Linked and transformed by one phone call, Hello? weaves together these five Wisconsin teens' stories into a compelling narrative of friendship and family, loss and love, heartbreak and healing, serendipity, and ultimately hope.

Told from all five viewpoints: narration (Tricia), narration (Emerson), free verse poetry (Angie), screenplay format (Brenda), narration and drawings (Brian).

3 Reasons You Should Read…

Hello? by Liza M Wiemer

  • It’s no secret that we are obsessed in love with this book and its author. We were lucky enough to receive a very early review copy. Here is what we said after reading it: Heart-stopping, real, and a breath of fresh air, Liza Wiemer’s debut is the kind of story that captivates and sticks with you long after you turn the last page. Poignant relationships between family and friends will grab your attention while stunning writing and authentic characters will leave you unable to stop reading until the very end. Hello? is an absolute must read.” … if that’s not enough to make you want to read it, let’s talk about a couple of other reasons we think you should.
  • We can’t say enough good things about the characters in Hello?. Seriously, you guys. There is someone for everyone here. You will find someone to love, someone you relate to, someone to swoon over, and probably even someone you love to hate. Just keep in mind that Emerson is all ours. You can still admire him from afar though.
  • Still not convinced? Let us just give you this one last, very important piece of info. The author of this book is one of the best people we know. She is giving, kind, warm, and full of light and love. She is the kind of person you meet and instantly feel like you’ve known your whole life. She makes you feel important and heard. Basically, she’s amazing. If the one of a kind story, the characters, and different writing styles for each voice aren’t enough to make you read (they should be!) reading something written by the wonderful Liza is all the reason you need.
