"Will leave a mark on your heart." Stephanie Garber, author of the Caraval series

"A smart romance with heart and guts and all the intoxicating feelings in between." Maureen Johnson, author of 13 Little Blue Envelopes


Falling in love wasn't part of the plan.


Eliza Quan fully expects to be voted the next editor in chief of her school paper. She works hard, she respects the facts, and she has the most experience. Len DiMartile is an injured star baseball player who seems to have joined the paper just to have something to do. Naturally, the staff picks Len to be their next leader. Because while they may respect Eliza, they don't particularly like her ­- but right now, Eliza is not here to be liked. She's here to win.

But someone does like Eliza. A lot.

Shame it's the boy standing in the way of her becoming editor in chief...

Feisty, funny and fierce. Not Here To Be Liked is packed with honesty and heart.

I absolutely LOVED this book – it was such a treat! I loved how It really showed that sometimes being a good feminist and even a good person just isn’t so straightforward. What a brilliant book!
