Publisher's Summary

Sofia is just a normal high school girl, worried about getting her homework done and looking cool in the lunchroom, when he shows up: a devastatingly handsome new kid, mysteriously covered in decaying bandages, and staring at her from the empty holes where his eyes should be. She thinks he's just a hipster, but is there more to this handsome stranger than meets the eye? Yes. He's a mummy. We're not really making a secret about this. The twist is he's a mummy. It's a book about a girl who falls in love with a mummy. We've read young adult books about teenage girls unknowingly falling in love with vampires, werewolves, angels, demons, fairies, mermen, warlocks, dreamwalkers, and trolls. Seriously, there was one about trolls. It's time for mummies, dammit. It's time for mummies.

    "Speed it up to 1.25 or more, and enjoy yourself!"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unwrap My Heart?

    Unwrap My Heart is to Twilight and Warm Bodies what Cabin in the Woods was to horror. Very cleverly playing with the tropes without fully falling into the horror genre. This novel has a great deal of cute moments in this short novel, but they all wink knowingly at how those moments are often poorly executed in works of teen romance, while not crossing the line into attacking everything this book is built on. Personally, the moments with the father made me laugh throughout the book. I listened to it at 1.5, which I think made the narration sound more crisp, and honored the level of comedy on the page.

    "Love the book and the podcast"

    Great book actually made me laugh audibly in the middle of work. I got some weird looks from people but totally worth it for this delightful book. Keep up the good work on the podcast Read it and Weep and I look forward to another book some day.

    "best read in a long time!"

    This story was so finally and silly! Extremely meta and self referential. I love all the fun the author's had poking fun at the whole genre.
    Read this book! You deserve it.

    Sarah Hathaway was a wonderful voice for the odd and quirky Sophia. Very expressive and on point for the tone of the book.

    "Funny and clever"

    The problem I have with a lot of parodies is that they get pretty boring after the joke is played. This book is refreshing because it's fun throughout. The characters are likeable (I'M LOOKING AT YOU BELLA SWAN) and Sophia's dad in particular is a funny character with quirks that made me laugh out loud.

    The hipster-mummy-defeats-graverobbers-in-Sophia's-mind scene was hilarious. I was pleasantly surprised by this. If you love to hate twilight, you will enjoy this book both for the joke and for the character and story work that's more interesting in 4 hours of listening than was accomplished in all 4 of he Twilight books.
