“This book is compulsively readable, an exquisite balance of self-aware ‘heart and hustle’ sports cliché balanced by the nuance of navigating sexuality and gender presentation in a gossipy small town.”
— Nora Tjossem, Greenlight Bookstore, Brooklyn, NY

Praise For…

"Like Other Girls boldly takes on the ultimate system of patriarchy--high school football---and spins a feminist revolution into a critique of the way women are pitted against each other and certain expressions of gender and femininity are valued over others. Britta Lundin has created a flawed, sharp, and absolutely magnificent roster of girls learning about themselves and each other, and how to treat both with more empathy and compassion."—Mackenzi Lee, New York Times best-selling author of The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue

"Like Other Girls breaks all the rules in the best possibly ways! Britta Lundin navigates the complexities of identity, friendships, gender, sexuality, and finding your voice with the humor and thoughtfulness readers deserve. This book is a triumphant reminder: There is no right or wrong way to be ourselves.”—Julian Winters, award-winning author of Running With Lions

"Lundin has created a book about sports, friendship, and discovering you've always had a place in the world—you just have to claim it."—Booklist

"Readers need not like (or understand) football to wholeheartedly cheer for the Elkhorn Five. Fiercely charming and achingly relatable—a glorious, empowering touchdown."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Like Other Girls is the book you want to read right now: wildly absorbing and deeply warm-hearted. Lundin's writing is compassionate and nuanced, and her characters are distinctly, heartbreakingly teenaged. A perfect book for anyone who is trying to figure out how to grow up and into themselves."—Zan Romanoff, author of Look, an O Magazine "LGBTQ book that will change the literary landscape"

“Britta Lundin’s Like Other Girls doesn’t pull any punches—it is raw and angry and unapologetically queer.”—Ashley Poston, best-selling author of the Once Upon a Con series
