We’re still in the same room, you weirdo.

Stop crying.

But as each changes and grows into her new life, will their friendship be able to survive the distance?

Allison Raskin & Gaby Dunn are two best friends who live in Los Angeles. They started the comedy YouTube channel Just Between Us in 2014 and have since then spent far too much time together. Gaby’s journalism has appeared in pretty much every major publication and Allison has written some really funny group texts with her family. They hope to die within one hour of each other so neither has to plan a funeral. I Hate Everyone But You is their debut novel.

  1. My daughters and my dad. Dad is always there to help when I need it and my daughters are too. I can talk to my daughters more than my dad but that’s ok.

  2. The one person always there for me is my husband. I have a lot of anxiety and panic disorders, and I (unfortunately) rely on him a lot. And he never complains a bit.
    Thanks for this giveaway chance. ❤

  3. I’m lucky enough to have a few people in my life who always back me up. The most consistent of them, and the one I lean on the most is my wonderful wife, Melody.

  4. the one person that’s always been by my side is my best friend Mikey i’ve only known him for a year almost 2 but he’s been real & by my side more than anyone else i’ve ever known
