Ava and Gen are best friends. Ava knows what she wants and has plans to achieve her goals. Gen...not so much. But no matter how annoying, dramatic, or utterly bananas a 2 a.m. rant might get Ava has always been there for Gen and Gen for Ava. But then they graduated high school.
Now, they're in the same time zone (although over a thousand miles apart), and in the real world, and it's the worst, but they still have each other's support. For relationships. Questionable roommates. Internships. And whether or not it's a good idea to take in a feral cat. Through their hilarious, sometimes emotional, conversations, Ava and Gen help each other navigate. But as the two of them start to change, will their friendship survive the distance?
In Please Send Help, the hilarious new novel from the New York Times bestselling authors of I Hate Everyone But You, Allison Raskin and Gaby Dunn perfectly capture the voice of young adults looking to find their place in the world, proving no matter how desperate things seem, your best friend is always there to reboot your life and send help.

Time well spent.
Absolutely charming! This book was like one of those 'comedic' British NA/Adult novels, but good. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Gen and Ava's shenanigans, and their friendship felt very real, which I'm sure was helped by the dual author situation. The plot was cute and simple while still touching on some serious and relevant issues nicely, which was appreciated. I would definitely recommend this to my friends!
I hadn’t read the first book so I was a little lost coming into this one, but it was definitely funny! I wanted to be friends with Ava and Gen! The book is written entirely in email and text which was different but it worked! I will be going back to read the first in the series! Thank you netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC!
Thank you so much to NetGalley for this ARC! I fell for the first book in this series like someone had pushed me down a flight of stairs. The friendship between Gen and Ava is so genuine and they warm my heart. I was so glad to see that the authors decided to continue with another installment, because not only do I love these characters, but it is written with my most favorite story telling device! The fact that these are through text messages and emails makes it feel so modern and intimate. It’s like we’re seeing things we’re not supposed to, getting to know two people through the places where they are most open, unlike in real life encounters. I feel like we all wear masks, but when we’re at home, behind the safety of a screen, we are more free to be ourselves. I really love how these books are primarily about the relationship of these two friends, while life changing things happen in the background. They find jobs, make romantic connections, act on poor decisions, but through it all they are still friends even on their worst days. It’s extremely heartening to see them get in fights but come through it stronger than ever. It’s realistic in the way that no relationship is perfect, but love really does conquer all. I was so excited by the ending which brought our two protagonists together again, and I would not say no to making this a trilogy!
