About the Book

Seth Baumgartner just had the worst day of his life.

His girlfriend dumped him (at Applebee's), he spied his father on a date with a woman who is not his mother (also at Applebee's!), and he lost his fourth job of the year. It's like every relationship he cares about is imploding, and he can't figure out what's going on.

To find answers, Seth decides to start an anonymous podcast called The Love Manifesto, exploring "what love is, why love is, and why we're stupid enough to keep going back for more." Things start looking up when Seth gets a job at a golf club with his hilarious and smut-minded best friend, Dimitri, and Dimitri's sister, Audrey. With their help, Seth tracks down his father's mystery date, hits the most infamous bogey in the history of golf, and discovers that sometimes love means eating the worst chicken-salad sandwich you can ever imagine.

Critical Praise

“Luper weaves together many themes—trust and secrets, lies and truth, love, lust and, of course, golf—in a way that even the most introspection-hating male reader will eat with a spoon. ” — Kirkus Reviews

“Teen readers, guys in particular, will find much to ponder about the fairways, traps, roughs, and lucky shots that make the game of love worth teeing up for.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“An entertaining summer read with heart and soul.” — Booklist

“Luper delivers plenty of laughs.” — Publishers Weekly

“Delightful, funny, and true, Seth and his manifesto will win your heart.” — Rachel Cohn, bestselling author of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

“A break-up story...that turns out to be a love story...that turns out to be so much more. Awesome.” — Lauren Myracle, bestselling author of TTYL and TTFN

“If you’ve ever been dumped, you’ll relate to this winning story about one ordinary boy’s funny, flawed attempts at putting the pieces back together. Not just a breakup book, Seth’s story is about the complications of love in its many forms.” — Megan McCafferty, author of the New York Times bestselling Jessica Darling series
