Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Very LeFreak has a problem: she’s a crazed technology addict. Very can’t get enough of her iPhone, laptop, IMs, text messages, whatever. If there’s any chance the incoming message, call, text, or photo might be from her supersecret online crush, she’s going to answer, no matter what. Nothing is too important: sleep, friends in mid-conversation, class, a meeting with the dean about academic probation. Soon enough, though, this obsession costs Very everything and everyone. Can she learn to block out the noise so she can finally hear her heart?

Rachel Cohn makes her Knopf solo debut with this funny, touching, and surely recognizable story about a girl and the technology habit that threatens everything.

Synopsis:

Preferring her relationships with her iPhone and laptop to all human contact, obsessive technology enthusiast Very has increasing difficulties prioritizing the important things in her life, from sleep and friends to a meeting with the dean about her academic probation.

Synopsis:

Consumed with emailing, online video games, and the many distractions of her electronic gadgets, hyper-frenetic Columbia University freshman Veronica, known as Very LeFreak, enters a rehab facility for the technology-addicted after her professors and classmates stage an intervention.

About the Author

Rachel Cohn is also the author of Gingerbread, Cupcake, and Shrimp; and, with David Levithan, is the coauthor of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist and Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List. She lives and writes in Manhattan.
