With the warmth, wit, intimate friendships, and heart-melting romance she brings to all her books, Emma Mills crafts a story about believing in yourself, owning your mistakes, and trusting in human connection in Lucky Caller.
When Nina decides to take a radio broadcasting class her senior year, she expects it to be a walk in the park. Instead, it’s a complete disaster.
The members of Nina’s haphazardly formed radio team have approximately nothing in common. And to maximize the awkwardness her group includes Jamie, a childhood friend she’d hoped to basically avoid for the rest of her life.
The show is a mess, internet rumors threaten to bring the wrath of two fandoms down on their heads, and to top it all off Nina’s family is on the brink of some major upheaval.
Everything feels like it’s spiraling out of control―but maybe control is overrated?
PRAISE FOR LUCKY CALLER
A well-crafted, bittersweet comedy of errors filled with realistically flawed characters and taut, witty dialogue. – Publishers Weekly Starred Review
Emma Mills is the author of First & Then, This Adventure Ends, Foolish Hearts, Famous in a Small Town, and Lucky Caller. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri, and has recently completed a PhD in cell biology.
- What is on your nightstand?
A whole stack of books, including UPROOTED by Naomi Novik, THE AFFAIR OF THE MYSTERIOUS LETTER by Alexis Hall, and WITCH HAT ATELIER 1 by Kamome Shirahama. I also have an alarm clock (I don’t like to use my phone for alarms!), a handful of pens, and a journal.
- What author would you totally fan?
I would and have fangirled over Leigh Bardugo.
- What makes you cringe?
The sound of fingernails being filed… I cannot bear it!
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I’d say I’m pretty go with the flow. I don’t usually create outlines for my books. But that being said, my stories are definitely more character-driven than plot-driven, so I do spend a lot of time thinking about the emotional beats/journey of my characters.
- Is there a word you love to use?
I love the word ‘unbidden’. I like when an emotion catches someone unaware, so saying it’s ‘unbidden’ is one of my favorite ways of putting it.
Here is my doggie Teddy. He is a very good boy!
