Genres: Comedy, Contemporary, New Adult
Sourpuss is a blistering satire of the depraved and entitled culture that pervades college campuses.
Mallory Wahl loathes the campus party scene . . .
She’s sprinting through her senior year obsessed with winning a spot on the US Olympic track team. But she runs straight into a hurdle in the form of fraternity president Graham Patterson, an intern assigned to help her recover from an injury – one she blames on him.
Once Graham’s therapies begin to work, Mallory pretends to fall in love but traps herself in her own scheme and tailspins deep into his debauched world. When a scandal erupts which threatens to shatter her Olympic dreams once and for all, Mallory must finally face the dark truth she’s been running from since freshman year.
In the style of a ’90s dark comedy flick, Merricat Mulwray’s debut brings an insightful and humorous perspective to the reckless behavior college students perpetually get away with. Mallory, herself a flawed heroine, is backed by a self-serving cast of athletes, party girls, townies, and fraternity brothers so hilariously dark that the book will leave you wondering if anyone ever gets what they deserve.

EXCERPT 
Wesley Rides His Bike
The spring air flowed across Wesley’s body with an unexpected deliciousness. He zipped away from the great Queen Anne on his carbon fiber road bike. It was moments like this he was glad to be born of wealth and privilege. Nothing could stop him from doing exactly as he wanted, not the fact that his body was bruised and beaten or that he was trashed. He had a dope bike that was light and rode itself. Wesley’s lips turned upward as he dodged protesters, neighboring fraternity brothers, and students. In a few short moments, he would destroy his illegitimate brother’s plans, save Graham from turning himself into a patsy, return harmony back to the campus, and say goodbye to the guilt that fueled his mission. Wesley to the rescue!
He increased his speed and released his hands from the handlebars. After he saved the day, he would be free, and James would be incarcerated. Soon the whole world would know the truth about James Furrow, the none. When Wesley opened his eyes, he was soaring. He caught air down the steep hill on fraternity row. He was completely airborne. Students on the street watched with cheers and mouths agape as he flew overhead. His front tire smacked onto the pavement. The impact launched Wesley off his seat and directly over the top of his handlebars. Wesley wailed as he flew through the air face first. His arms shot up in protective response over the crown of his head. Wesley’s eyelids snapped closed. All went black and his body landed half inside and half outside of an overgrown bush. Bystanders golf clapped as he barfed on the scale-shaped leaves. When he emerged, covered in burrs, he wiped the blood from his mouth and smiled, revealing the loss of his front tooth.
“My wheelths,” requested Wesley with his new lisp.
Through the small crowd, the bike was returned to him. And with a lift and a few pushes forward, Wesley continued onward.
