With rave reviews pouring in, this smart, bighearted love story is now available in paperback. Great for fans of John Green and Rainbow Rowell! Sixteen-year-old Josie knows a lot of languages: she speaks High School, College, Friends, Boyfriends, Break-ups, and even the language of Beautiful Girls. But none is her native tongue. The only people who speak that are her best friend Stu and her sister, Kate. So when Kate gets engaged to an insufferable guy, how can Josie see it as anything but the mistake of a lifetime? As battles are waged over secrets and semantics, Josie begins to wonder about the nature of true love. Can anyone be truly herself in a language that's not her own.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for "Love and Other Foreign Words"
"A story as funny, off-beat, and warm-hearted as its heroine. I was wowed."--Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of "My Life Next Door" and "What I Thought Was True"
"Whether happy families are all truly alike, they can certainly have a similar effect when they appear in a novel: The reader can't help longing to join them. This sentiment kept recurring as I laughed my way through Erin McCahan's impossibly winning [novel]."--"The Wall Street Journal"
"Readers in the mood for serious laughs need look no further than McCahan's story about 15-year-old Josie Sheridan... [whose] analytical, overthinking narration and knack for delivering truly lacerating quips...will have readers sticking by her side."--"Publisher's Weekly, ""Best Summer Books 2014"
"Josie's a rarity in teen literature, a genuine original. Being gifted sets her apart. Armored by arch mannerisms, trying to control what can't be controlled, wanting and fearing love, she's one of us. Lively characters and a satisfying plot foil reader expectations in the best possible way."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"Coming-of-age moments add a nice bit of heart to Josie's journey... A quirky love story."--"School Library Journal"
"A true-blue lovable weirdo, [Josie is] the type of character I really enjoy seeing... [she is] authentically herself, even when being herself gets in her into trouble."--HelloGiggles
"It's refreshing to meet a character so cracklingly smart that you wish you could actually buy her a coffee and just hear her jabber. That's Josie, the main gal in the latest from McCahan.... With impeccable clarity--and hilarity--Josie explores how magical things left "unsaid "can be and how even a native tongue can be full of meaning and surprises. This clever read will satisfy fans of Rainbow Rowell, John Green, and Stephanie Perkins."--"Booklist"
