Synopsis: Smart and unflinching, this #OwnVoices debut contemporary novel stars an ambitious college student who refuses to be defined by her central auditory processing disorder.
Edie Kits has a learning disability. Well, not a learning disability exactly, but a disability that impacts her learning. It isn't visible, it isn't obvious, and it isn't something she likes to advertise.
And for three semesters of college, her hard work and perseverance have carried her through. Edie thinks she has her disability under control until she meets her match with a French 102 course and a professor unwilling to help her out.
Edie finds herself caught between getting the help she needs and convincing her professor that she isn't looking for an easy out. Luckily for Edie, she has an amazing best friend, Serena, who is willing to stitch together a plan to ensure Edie's success. And then there's Hudson, the badly dressed but undoubtedly adorable TA in her French class who finds himself pulled into her orbit... Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads, Meet Me in Outer Space is a sweet, heartachingly real story of love and college life by debut author Melinda Grace.
Review: Another book that I completely devoured! I loved how cute this book was. The meet cute was… cute lol. The main character has a disability. The book is fast paced and is the perfect quick read to move you from one heavy read to another one. The main characters are developed and the world is developed amazingly well.
However, as the book progresses we hear less and less about the main character’s disability. I feel that’s a double edged sword, the book shouldn’t have totally focused on the main character’s disability but I feel that it shouldn’t have completely dissolved either.
