Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

A beautiful, offbeat novel from Mariko Tamaki, co-creator of the bestselling Printz Honor and Caldecott Honor Book This One Summer

Montgomery Sole is a square peg in a small town, a girl with two moms forced to go to a school full of homophobes and people who don't even know what irony is. Her saving grace--her two best friends, Thomas and Naoki. Monty's obsessed with paranormal mysteries like ESP, astrology, superpowers, and the healing powers of frozen yogurt, but when strange things actually start happening to Monty, she realizes that the greatest mystery of all is herself. Thoughtful, funny, and honest, this book will make you want to laugh and cry over a big cup of frozen yogurt with extra toppings and your best friends at your side.

Review Quote*Praise for (You) Set Me On Fire:
"Tamaki perfectly captures the intimacy and intensity unique to female friendships." --Rolling Stone
"Tamaki's latest effort is a pitch-perfect instruction manual for the first stages of adult life. It's a fantastic book that sends readers a reassuring love letter, telling them that while they will get burned (figuratively if not physically), they will also survive." --Quill & Quire
"[Allison Lee's] musings on sexuality and relationships are hilarious, heartbreaking and bitingly true." --CBC Canada Reads citation
