Dear Reader,

As a follow up to our debut novel, UNPREGNANT, a YALSA Top 10 Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers and now a movie on HBO Max, we wanted to write another funny, raucous story about something serious: expectations. From friends, parents, social media, movies and, dare we even say, books (we're looking at you, Fault in Our Stars), it can be overwhelming and exhausting to live up to all of them. 

SAVE STEVE is a story about the pressure of expectations and how they might cause a really good person to do something that maybe isn't so great, with hilariously bad results. It's also a story about how those terrible decisions can lead to real, if messy, growth. Along the way it's got sharks, bee beards, genderbending dance numbers, and Cardi B. 

We hope you laugh as much reading it as much as we did writing it. For a chance to win a free copy, send us a message at!!

"Fast paced and ridiculously funny....heartfelt and laugh-out-loud hilarious. A must-read." —DANTE MEDEMA, author of The Truth Project 

"Both laugh-out-loud hilarious and wholly empathetic, SAVE STEVE is another incredible effort from Hendriks and Caplan. Fans of Unpregnant will be sure to love their second novel, and find themselves rooting for both Cam and Steve along the way." —LIZ LAWZON, author of The Lucky Ones
