In this heartwarming debut by HelloGiggles blogger Kerry Winfrey, a young agoraphobe begins a journey of first love that leads her to the true meaning of home—just by taking one small step outside of her house.

My name is Mallory Sullivan.

My therapist says I have an anxiety disorder.

My brother says I’m an “optimistic recluse.”

Everybody else says I'm a freak.

And they kind of have a point, because I haven't left the house in 67 days and only attend class via the webcam on my laptop. The person I talk to the most other than my mom and brother is the completely obnoxious BeamMeUp, and all we do is argue on New Mexico’s premiere alien message board.

But after yesterday, I have something: a chance. If I can win the homecoming crown by convincing resident hot popular guy and Friday Night Lights spawn Brad Kirkpatrick to go as my date, then maybe #stayathome will never appear next to the name @Mallory_Sullivan ever again.

First, I have to leave my room.

***Our Review***

The 411:

Mallory hasn’t been out of the house since her dad left. She’s agoraphobic. But when she’s nominated for homecoming queen she doesn’t know what to do. Can she win the crown and the guy? Or will she be stuck inside forever?

What We Loved:

We were so excited to crack the cover of this one. What we found inside kept that feeling alive. Here are a few of our favorite things:

  • So Contemporary– We have been reading a lot of “heavy” books lately and this was just what we needed after that. It’s lighthearted, fun, and easy to read. Just what we were looking for.
  • The Characters– Our favorite part about this book had to be the characters. There’s someone for everyone. Someone to root for, someone to swoon over, someone to empathize with, and even someone to roll your eyes at and hate a little. You won’t be able to get enough of this cast.
  • Real Issues– Even with its easy to read nature, Love and Other Alien Experiences touches on very important and very real issues. Abandonment, bullying, anxiety, and fear. It’s all there.

“I lean over and give him one quick kiss. This is it. This is where I belong. This is home.”

Bottom Line:

Love and other Alien Experiences is full of quirk and adorable swoon. You will race through its pages and fall in love with its characters. This is the type of debut novel that will leave you with a smile on your face.
