Reader, Meet Writer: TJ Klune

In partnership with the Southern Independent Bookseller Alliance, Page 158 Books is excited to present Reader, Meet Writer, a virtual event series featuring Southern authors. Space is limited, so RSVP is required. Check out the rest of the tour on our website.

Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl meets Marissa Meyer's Renegades in TJ Klune's YA debut, THE EXTRAORDINARIES, a queer coming-of-age story about a fanboy with ADHD and the heroes he loves.

Some people are extraordinary. Some are just extra.

Nick Bell? Not extraordinary. But he is the most popular fanfiction writer in the Extraordinaries fandom.

After a chance encounter with Shadow Star, Nova City’s mightiest hero (and Nick’s biggest crush), Nick sets out to make himself extraordinary. And he’ll do it with or without the reluctant help of Seth Gray, Nick's best friend (and maybe the love of his life).

TJ Klune is the Lambda Literary Award-winning author of The Extraordinaries, The House in the Cerulean Sea, and more. Being queer himself, TJ believes it’s important—now more than ever—to have accurate, positive, queer representation in stories. Visit him online at, on Twitter at @tjklune, and Instagram as @tjklunebooks. The Extraordinaries is TJ Klune's YA debut.
