A hilarious and vulnerable coming-of-age story about the thrilling new experience--and missteps--of a girl's freshman year of college

Some students enter their freshman year of college knowing exactly what they want to do with their lives. Elliot McHugh is not one of those people. But picking a major is the last thing on Elliot's mind when she's too busy experiencing all that college has to offer--from dancing all night at off-campus parties, to testing her RA Rose's patience, to making new friends, to having the best sex one can have on a twin-sized dorm room bed. But she may not be ready for the fallout when reality hits. When the sex she's having isn't that great. When finals creep up and smack her right in the face. Or when her roommate's boyfriend turns out to be the biggest a-hole. Elliot may make epic mistakes, but if she's honest with herself (and with you, dear reader), she may just find the person she wants to be. And maybe even fall in love in the process . . . Well, maybe.

Genre: Young Adult Romance

Praise for this book

"Eliot McHugh is the bold, funny, and sex-positive friend you wish you had with you to help navigate freshman year of college." - Sara Farizan

"This delightfully modern take on a classic story is both fun and funny, sexy and sex positive, and if all that’s not enough, I have two more words for you: Jane Austen." - Gayle Forman

"Margot Wood’s Fresh bubbles over with irreverence, humor, and heart, capturing teen spirit in all its incarnations and creating a new classic for a new generation." - Danielle Paige

"Fresh is a book I wish had existed when I was a teenager: frank, laugh-out-loud funny, and a refreshing (pun intentional) peek behind the intimidating curtain that separates high school and college. The best part? Our intrepid narrator, Elliot McHugh: messy, imperfect, sincere, hilarious, and warm—a character you will miss long after the book is over." - Veronica Roth

"I couldn’t stop reading! I was dying to know if Elliot would have a happy ending." - Abigail Hing Wen
