Tilly in Technicolor

Tilly in Technicolor

Tilly in Technicolor is Mazey Eddings's sparkling YA debut about two neurodivergent teens who form a connection over the course of a summer.

Tilly Twomley is desperate for change. White-knuckling her way through high school with flawed executive functioning from ADHD has left her burned-out and ready to start fresh.

Working as an intern for her perfect older sister’s start-up isn’t exactly how Tilly wants to spend her summer, but the required travel around Europe promises a much-needed change of scenery as she plans her future. The problem is, Tilly has no idea what she wants.

About the Audiobook

"So freaking cute. Tilly in Technicolor will have you aching with love for these characters while swooning at their awkward adorableness together. I want to hug this book to my chest."

―Chloe Gong, #1 New York Times bestselling author of These Violent Delights

"A sweet neurodivergent love story.. Hand to readers who could write an essay about how Mr. Darcy could be autistic, or any fan of well-written love stories."

- School Library Journal, starred review

"Eddings, who shares both characters’ diagnoses, brings clarity, humor, insight, and empathy to their challenges. An adjunct assortment of bright, variously divergent teens manifest kindness, affection, and acceptance."

- Kirkus

"A tender, heartfelt, and effortlessly inclusive feel-good YA romance with one of the best (read: hilarious) disaster-cutes I've ever witnessed, Tilly in Technicolor captures the giddy thrill of finding the person who sees you, who gets you, and who, ultimately, adores you exactly as you are. I loved Mazey Edding's YA debut―the equivalent of a firm bear hug―from the very first page, and by the time I reached the last, I felt loved back. This is an affirming and joyful novel about rediscovering yourself outside of boxes, expectations, and comfort zones."

―Lillie Vale, author of Beauty and the Besharam

"Mazey Eddings has one of the most realistically hilarious voices in Romance and has secured this across age categories with her new YA rom-com, Tilly in Technicolor. Equal parts funny, awkward, tender, hopeful, and swoony, I would do anything for Tilly and Oliver. WE MUST PROTECT THEM AT ALL COSTS. Can’t wait for more books from Mazey!"

―Susan Lee, author of Seoulmates

Tilly in Technicolor is the perfect coming of age story set in far off places and featuring one hell of an adorable love story. Eddings has brought a new and inspired voice to YA romance with her own (very welcome) spin, inviting neurodivergent readers to find themselves understood, accepted and fully loved within the pages.”

-Erin Hahn, author of Never Saw You Coming

"Tilly in Technicolor lives up to its name, as Mazey Eddings writes with a full palette of colors. Beneath the laughter and the swooning, there’s a rich journey of self-acceptance and not changing who you are to fit in with the rest of the world. This book shines bright."

―Brian D. Kennedy, author of A Little Bit Country

"A wildly fun travel adventure, poignant celebration of neurodiversity, and swoon-worthy romance all at once, Tilly in Technicolor is an unforgettable YA debut. It will leave you laughing, making heart-eyes, and running to add anything Mazey Eddings writes to your shelf. I loved every bright, colorful minute with Tilly and Ollie!"

―Kaitlyn Hill, author of Love from Scratch

"Eddings (The Plus One, for adults)―who is both autistic and has ADHD―organically develops a heartwarming rom-com about two teens who often feel out-of-step with their peers finding balance with each other."

- Publishers Weekly

"Eddings' [YA] debut will appeal to readers looking for both a coming-of-age story and a romance with well-developed and relatable neurodivergent main characters."
