Reviews and Publicity

Library Journal "Best Books of 2013" says Courting Greta is a "charming and unconventional debut novel. Especially refreshing for its rarity in fiction is [Hootman's] sensitive depiction of living with a physical challenge."

Library Journal star review - "A refreshing, original love story about two socially awkward yet utterly fascinating people. Fans of John Green's quirky lovers in The Fault in Our Stars or this year's hot adaptation, Matthew Quirk's Silver Linings Playbook, will want to check this one out... Highly recommended."

Publishers Weekly star review - "...terrific debut, a most unlikely romance."

Heroes and Heartbreakers - "The only book I've loved in an entire year."
