Publisher's Summary

"Not only is this queer rom-com audiobook PERFECT ON PAPER - it's also perfect on audio.... The wonderful writing coupled with [Barrie] Kreinik's execution makes this a spectacular audiobook." (AudioFile magazine, Earphones Award winner)

In Sophie Gonzales' Perfect on Paper, Leah on the Offbeat meets To All the Boys I've Loved Before: a bisexual girl who gives anonymous love advice to her classmates is hired by the hot guy to help him get his ex back

Her advice, spot on. Her love life, way off.

Darcy Phillips:

  • Can give you the solution to any of your relationship woes - for a fee.
  • Uses her power for good. Most of the time.
  • Really cannot stand Alexander Brougham.
  • Has maybe not the best judgement when it comes to her best friend, Brooke…who is in love with someone else.
  • Does not appreciate being blackmailed.

However, when Brougham catches her in the act of collecting letters from locker 89 - out of which she’s been running her questionably legal, anonymous relationship advice service - that’s exactly what happens. In exchange for keeping her secret, Darcy begrudgingly agrees to become his personal dating coach - at a generous hourly rate, at least. The goal? To help him win his ex-girlfriend back.

Darcy has a good reason to keep her identity secret. If word gets out that she’s behind the locker, some things she's not proud of will come to light, and there’s a good chance Brooke will never speak to her again.

Okay, so all she has to do is help an entitled, bratty, (annoyingly hot) guy win over a girl who’s already fallen for him once? What could go wrong?

What the critics say

"Didn’t know it was possible to pack a book with this much charm, humor, sincerity, and wisdom, but then again, it’s Sophie Gonzales. Perfect on Paper is perfectly wonderful." (Becky Albertalli, New York Times best-selling author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda)

“I devoured this book in one lovely day! Yet again Sophie has created an ensemble of empathetic characters led by a clever, relatable, sincere protagonist you’ll root for all the way through. Perfect on Paper is full of the kind of sharp wit, keen insight, and hilarious rom-com shenanigans that make it a heartfelt reminder that love may come in infinite and unexpected ways, but is still the one thing we all have in common.” (Emma Lord, author of Tweet Cute)

Perfect on Paper is a perfectly-complicated love story in every way. Gonzales has gifted us with a well-intentioned and thoughtfully-complex protagonist in Darcy, whose advice is wonderfully applied not only to the questioning students she anonymously helps, but to readers as well! Full of swoons and angst and packaged carefully with heart, Perfect on Paper was a brilliant study on the complications of first loves.” (Erin Hahn, author of You’d Be Mine and More than Maybe)
