Having captivated audiences for years as sassy Missy Cooper on CBS’s hit show ‘Young Sheldon,’ 16-year-old Raegan Revord is adding another accomplishment to her resume. She has penned her first novel for young adult readers, “Rules for Fake Girlfriends,” which will hit shelves in Fall 2025 courtesy of Wednesday Books.

Centered around Avery Blackwell as she reckons with grief over losing her mother and adjusts to life at her mom’s former college, Brighton Prep, the book’s plot thickens when a would-be boyfriend named Charlie draws Avery into a pretend relationship and intriguing scavenger hunt dreamed up by her late mother. Weaving together loss, love, and self-discovery, “Rules for Fake Girlfriends” traces Avery’s emotional odyssey over one school year.

Eileen Rothschild, Vice President and Associate Publisher at Wednesday Books, expressed enthusiasm over the novel’s poignant and immersive portrayal of Avery as she navigates the ups and downs of grief, friendship, and first romance. She expects the book will resonate widely thanks to its blend of complex emotions that many readers have encountered in their own lives.

For fans of touching and funny young adult novels like Stephanie Perkins’ “Anna and The French Kiss” and Casey McQuiston’s “I Kissed Shara Wheeler,” Revord’s debut promises a fresh take on timeless coming-of-age themes that will feel relatable, relevant, and entertaining.

An avowed bookworm active in literary circles, Revord has long nurtured dual passions for reading and writing. Getting to work with the highly regarded team at Wednesday Books has been a dream come true. Just as thrilling for Revord has been transitioning from devoted reader to published novelist herself under the guidance of industry veterans like Rothschild.

In addition to memorably portraying quick-witted Missy Cooper on the small screen, Revord has spearheaded “Read with Raegan” — an online book club community counting over 55,000 Instagram followers. The club enables young adult readers to gather virtually to discuss favorite books and authors.

As she eagerly awaits next fall’s release of “Rules for Fake Girlfriends,” Revord hopes her debut will help diversify the voices and experiences reflected in young adult fiction. By crafting an inclusive, meaningful portrait of Avery’s coming-of-age, Revord aims to pen the types of stories she craves more of as a reader.

With her first published novel soon to captivate young adult audiences everywhere, the future shines brightly for this multitalented 16-year-old. “Rules for Fake Girlfriends” promises to usher in an exciting new chapter in the storybook career of Raegan Revord.
