Meet Me in Outer Space by Melinda Grace
(Swoon Reads)
Publication date: March 12th 2019
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult

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.


I sat staring at the computer screen. Fifty-nine. The grade on my last French test. It didn’t make sense. I studied for this test.  
I really studied. I sank my head into my hands as the room door opened behind me.
“What’s up?” Serena asked, setting her bag down hard. I shook my head. What 
was there to say?
“What happened?” she asked, crossing the room to stand over my shoulder. “Oh.”
