Coming in May 2018, the long-awaited sequel to the award-winning YA classic, The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things!

It’s been five months since Virginia thought her life was back on course: she has come to terms with who she is both inside and out, and she’s even started rebuilding her relationship with her older brother Byron, whose expulsion from college shattered everything last fall. But just as she’s getting used to her new normal, Virginia’s world turns upside down again. She’s falling out of like with Froggy Welsh the Fourth, her best friend Shannon bombshells her with bad news, and then the police show up at her apartment to arrest Byron.

As Virginia struggles to cope, she meets Sebastian, a clumsy artist with his own baggage. The pair make a pact not to share their personal dramas. But secrets have a way of coming out, and theirs has the potential to ruin everything.

The Universe Is Expanding and So Am I brings Virginia’s story satisfyingly full circle in a hope-filled tale of forgiveness, love, friendship, and the beauty in life’s imperfections.
