You’ve Got Mail meets Abbott Elementary in this "voicey and big-hearted" romantic comedy where a meet disaster between a shy guidance counselor and the hot new history teacher leads an unexpected connection (Chloe Liese, USA Today bestselling author). 

"Jessica Lepe absolutely sparkles in this stunning debut!"
—Lyssa Kay Adams, USA Today bestselling author

School counselor Lucy Galindo has a secret.

To her coworkers, friends, and even family, she’s shy, sweet, and constantly struggling to hold off disaster (read: manage her anxiety and depression). But online? She’s bold, confident, and always knows what to say—it’s how she’s become the wildly popular @TheMissGuidedCounselor. It’s also why she keeps her identity anonymous. Her followers would never trust the real Lucy with their problems.

History teacher Aldrich Fletcher thought a new job would give him some relief from his drama-filled family. Instead, he’s dodging his ex-girlfriend and pining over his new co-worker—who only ever seems to see him at his worst. Thankfully, he can count on his online confidant for advice . . . until he discovers @TheMissGuidedCounselor is Lucy.

Now Fletcher has a secret too. And while Lucy can’t deny there’s something between them, she’s not sure she can trust him. Can they both find the courage to share the truth and step out from behind their screens?
Jessica Lepe is a former social worker turned website designer who spends her days writing, listening to murder podcasts, and wrangling knives out of her toddler’s hands (sometimes all at the same time). She discovered her love for reading after sneaking romance novels in her bible at her all-girls Catholic high school and in between the spines of her siddur at synagogue each Saturday and she hasn’t stopped reading romance since.
A proud and passionate advocate for mental health, Jessica writes romances with complex and flawed characters with multicultural and religious backgrounds that reflect the people she loves most in this world.
