Description-

  • When Lily Michaels-Ryan ditches her ADHD meds and lands in detention with Abelard, she's intrigued-he seems thirty seconds behind while she feels thirty seconds ahead. It doesn't hurt that he's brilliant and beautiful. When Abelard posts a quote from The Letters of Abelard and Heloise online, their mutual affinity for ancient love letters connects them. The two fall for each other. Hard. But is it enough to bridge their differences in person?

    October 9, 2017
    Despite having dyslexia and ADHD, sophomore Lily Michaels-Ryan is well-read when it comes to medieval literature. When she was a child, her father used to read her The Letters of Abelard and Héloïse, the tragic tale of two lovers in 12th-century France. Lily’s father has since moved away to a cooperative farm, and the only Abelard in her life is Abelard Mitchell, a classmate with Asperger’s syndrome. When Lily and Abelard get sent to the vice principal’s office after a classroom incident, something sparks between them and leads to an unexpected romance. With wit, empathy, and insight, first-time author Creedle traces the smitten teens’ growing understanding of each other’s disabilities and mutual desire to make their relationship work. Though they face many obstacles—Lily’s impulsiveness and propensity to break things, Abelard’s reticence and sensitivity to touch—they find ways to communicate, often through text messages. Readers will be moved by the sacrifices the teens make for each other, and the open-ended conclusion invites speculation while providing reassurance that the bonds formed between these characters won’t easily be broken. Ages 12–up. Agent: Jim McCarthy, Dystel, Goderich & Bourret.

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Rebecca Gibel gives unique voices to neurodivergent teens Lily and Abelard, who have known each other since grade school. Having ADHD makes Lily's brain run in fast-forward mode; whereas, Asperger's makes Abelard's run slightly slower than everyone else's. When the duo ends up in detention together, an unlikely relationship blossoms over their shared love of the medieval text THE LOVE LETTERS OF ABELARD AND HELOISE. Gibel's portrayal of Lily sounds as fast and scattered as her thoughts. Some volume changes throughout the production may distract the listener; however, the authenticity of Lily's voice keeps one engaged. This debut audiobook by #ownvoices author Laura Creedle is worth a listen. A.L.S.M. � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
