Not My Problem
Not My Problem | Ciara Smyth
3 posts | 3 read | 8 to read
Perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli and Nina LaCour, this queer coming-of-age story from the author of The Falling in Love Montage is wry, multilayered, and unflinchingly honest. Aideen has plenty of problems she can't solve. But when she stumbles upon overachiever Meabh Kowalska having a full-blown meltdown, she sees one that she can actually fix. Meabh is desperate to escape her crushing pile of extracurriculars. Aideen volunteers to help--by pushing her down the stairs. Problem? Solved. Meabh's sprained ankle is the perfect excuse to ditch her overwhelming schedule. But when one of their classmates learns about their little scheme, more "clients" start asking for Aideen's "help"--kicking off a semester of traded favors, ill-advised hijinks, and even an unexpected chance at love. Fixing other people's problems won't fix her own. But it might be the push Aideen needs to start.

I wrote a kind of combined review of both of Ciara Smyth's YA books for Autostraddle: https://www.autostraddle.com/ciara-smyths-queer-ya-books-remind-me-of-being-a-te....

Both are as hilarious as they are moving, with a very authentic and empathetic feel to her queer teenage characters. Not My Problem is laugh-out-loud funny, make-you-cry sad, and everything in between. I loved it! #QueerBooks #LGBTQBooks #LGBTQ #QueerYA

Ciara Smyth is so funny. One of the best YA authors writing today, imho. You can tell she is really is in touch with contemporary teens (she is also a social worker).
