“You NEED to read this book!”
– Us, about HERETICS ANONYMOUS
There are a few things you need to know about the latest book we’ve added to our shelves, courtesy of author extraordinaire, Katie Henry. Firstly, it’s as funny as we’ve been trying to tell you. Now that it’s officially out in the world, you need to hurry up and read it so we can collectively discuss. And as a follow-up, Katie Henry is, likewise, very hilarious. She came up with a ton of fake blurbs for the book that we loved… but could’ve actually put on the final cover because so many people gave it real praise that we ran out of space.
But, in honor of that wildly funny fact and that HERETICS ANONYMOUS is officially on sale, we’ve created a quiz of our own fake blurbs for some of our favorite YA books! Can you guess the book by our vague compliments and descriptions? Scroll down and see! Then check out this video where we made Katie guess too, and see if you did as well as she did!

About Heretics Anonymous
Put an atheist in a strict Catholic school? Expect comedy, chaos, and an Inquisition.
When Michael walks through the doors of Catholic school, things can’t get much worse. His dad has just made the family move again, and Michael needs a friend. When a girl challenges their teacher in class, Michael thinks he might have found one, and a fellow atheist at that. Only this girl, Lucy, isn’t just Catholic . . . she wants to be a priest.
Lucy introduces Michael to other St. Clare’s outcasts, and he officially joins Heretics Anonymous, where he can be an atheist, Lucy can be an outspoken feminist, Avi can be Jewish and gay, Max can wear whatever he wants, and Eden can practice paganism.
Michael encourages the Heretics to go from secret society to rebels intent on exposing the school’s hypocrisies one stunt at a time. But when Michael takes one mission too far—putting the other Heretics at risk—he must decide whether to fight for his own freedom or rely on faith, whatever that means, in God, his friends, or himself.
