“A wild ride through portals to other worlds… This debut novel fuses a serious issue—the stigma of mental illness—with sci-fi to chronicle a girl’s unusual coming of age.”
- Kirkus Review
“This novel has a breakneck pace and Stefani’s writing is fluid and perfectly suited to this most extraordinary tale that blends coming of age, adventure, science fiction, and post-apocalyptic genres— and it all works beautifully.”

“As the father of two teenage girls, I can tell you that Brady Stefani must have some sort of supernatural helmet that helps him think and write in their language. But The Alienation of Courtney Hoffman is much more than a novel for teens. This fast-paced adventure kept my attention, blazing back-and-forth from reality to an alter-world so close by that it’s creepy. Here’s a page-turner that captures a lot about childhood struggles through an imaginative story filled with surprises.”
-Jim Schaefer, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and writer for the Detroit Free Press
“Stefani’s The Alienation of Courtney Hoffman is a thought-provoking and emotional journey through a young girl’s mind as she struggles to understand who she is, where she came from, and who she is supposed to be—all while deciphering between reality and the tricks our minds can sometimes play on us. Stefani beautifully demonstrates how difficult life can be for anyone who thinks or acts a little differently, and reminds us that, more often than not, the things that terrify us the most are the things trying to save us.”
-Jessica Stevens, author of Within Reach
The Alienation of Courtney Hoffman Playlist
I don’t have an elaborate set list, but I do have three albums that I depended on greatly to set the tone form my while I was writing certain types of scenes.
For the frightening scenes, which there are many I listened to Burzum’s first self-titled album (Norwegian black metal) especially the song “Feeble Screams from a Forest Unknown”
To lighten things up, for the less frightening scenes, I listened to Head on The Door by the Cure, and OK Computer by Radiohead
