Listen Up: We Can’t Get Enough of Mary H.K. Choi, Author of Emergency Contact

Listen Up BY kiara mills 05/07/2018


This week on A Few Things, we’ve got Mary H.K. Choi, a.k.a. @choitotheworld, a.k.a. the brilliantly badass writer whose debut novel, Emergency Contact, is charming existing YA fans and converting new ones, both.

P.S. We’re gearing up for sunny weather in a major way with Carla Colour’s Lind and Barton shades. These bright sunnies are 10% off with the code AFEWTHINGS. 



Special and amazing guest Mary H.K. Choi on bringing her talents to fiction...


  • Get your hands on Emergency Contact and prepare to fall in love with its incredibly endearing texting-fueled romance.
  • Mary also co-wrote The Keys with DJ Khaled—you might’ve heard of him?
  • Another masterpiece: her dazzling La Croix letter of rec, which we’re all citing the next time anyone doubts its supremacy.
  • Oh, and since it seems like you might like podcasts, Mary’s got one of those, too.
