Permanent Record. Book two. Out September 3, 2019. In the same way that Emergency Contact is about love and texting, Permanent Record is about love and social media. And fame. And student loan debt. And clout. And how waiting for the perfect moment to start living your life is a recipe for anxiety storms. Please pre-order it now. My entire self-esteem hangs in the balance. Man, it’s wild how hard this book was to write. I hope you enjoy it. Oh, also, read an excerpt on Entertainment Weekly. xo
