"With plenty of references to satisfy fans of the show, Kriegman's novel will also appeal to readers seeking a fun, breezy read with a lovable leading lady." ―Booklist
“Things I Can't Explain is a fresh, readable, witty romp through her new life in New York that's full of surprises and never gets routine. Reading it was like catching up with an old friend or rediscovering your favorite comfort food from childhood. There are a lot of books set in Manhattan, but Clarrisa's special blend of Ohio innocence, lyrical cynicism and optimism, and spot-on observational humor was a joy to read and full of surprises.” ―Caren Lissner, author of CARRIE PILBY on THINGS I CAN'T EXPLAIN
“Best of all, Kriegman's women...feel real and full of unexpected dimensions.” ―Santa Barbara Independent on Being Audrey Hepburn
“A fun, girly read [with] depth and intensity...Highly recommend.” ―I'd So Rather Be Reading.com on Being Audrey Hepburn
“First-time novelist Kriegman (creator of Clarissa Explains It All) hits all the right notes for breezy escapist fiction.” ―Publishers Weekly on Being Audrey Hepburn
“This is a fun romp: witty writing, passion and fashion, and oodles of Audrey. A perfect cure for the mean reds.” ―Booklist on Being Audrey Hepburn
“For anyone who believes in the magical powers of the perfect dress, this is the book for you! Kriegman has created a delightful, mystical escape where readers can easily slip into the dress (and matching shoes!) of Manhattan's most elite. With a narrative voice fit for lovers of young adult and new adult fiction, and a fresh fun take on the beloved mistaken identity trope, Being Audrey Hepburn is sure to please a wide range of readers.” ―Julie Cross, international bestselling author of Tempest on Being Audrey Hepburn
“Time to break out your loudest clothing, because Clarissa Darling is back. In a book, not a TV show. But still. Way cool.” ―The Mary Sue
“Being a twenty something aspiring journalist with boy problems, roommate problems, money problems and parent problems sure is hard. But thankfully for all the Hannah Horvaths of the world, Clarissa Darling is coming back.” ―New York Observer
“We're freaking out about the Clarissa Explains It All sequel.” ―Hello Giggles
“Clarissa made me feel like my goals were possible despite the many naysayers I'd encounter in my life. Realistic and engaging, she was the first contemporary character that truly engaged me...Judging by fans' reactions to the news about Clarissa creator Mitchell Kriegman's upcoming Things I Can't Explain.... many others feel the same way.” ―Geek Initiative
“Add in her talented computer game-creating skillz, a GUY best friend (practically unheard-of back then) who climbed in through her bedroom window via a ladder, and a pet alligator named Elvis, and [Clarissa] was everything I wanted to be.” ―Glamour

And there's some great bits about Sam.
Though the end had me going on saying...BUT SAM!
I grew up rushing home to watch Clarissa Explains It All, she was the girl who I wanted to be. I still think of her as an influence on my fashion as well as my personality. And the Clarissa in this novel is just as much the girl I want to be and also be besties with. She's going through some things (I feel that) and finding her way, but she's awesome still and I loved this book.
