“The novel follows Stacey Friedman, who is preparing for one of the most important events in her young life, her bat mitzvah,” reads the novel’s synopsis. “But in the lead up to the big day, she’s thrown for a loop after catching her bestie Lydia Katz locking lips with her crush Andy Goldfarb. The betrayal causes a verklempt Stacey to declare the sentence that inspires the unwieldy title… ‘you are so not invited to my bat mitzvah!’”
