Title: The New Guy (and Other Senior Year Distractions)
Author: Amy Spalding
Synopsis (via Goodreads): A ridiculously cute, formerly famous, new guy dropping into your life? It’s practically every girl’s dream. But not Jules McCallister-Morgan’s. I realize that on paper I look like your standard type-A, neurotic, overachiever. And maybe I am. But I didn’t get to be the editor of my school’s long-revered newspaper by just showing up*. I have one main goal for my senior year — early acceptance into my first choice Ivy League college — and I will not be deterred by best friends, moms who think I could stand to “live a little,” or boys. At least, that was the plan before I knew about Alex Powell**. And before Alex Powell betrayed me***. I know what you’re thinking: Calm down, Jules. But you don’t understand. This stuff matters. This is my life. And I’m not going down without a fight. * Okay, I sort of did. But it’s a sore subject. ** I mean, I guess everyone knows about Alex Powell? Two years ago, you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing about viral video boy band sensation Chaos 4 All. Two years ago, Alex Powell was famous. *** Some people think I’m overreacting. But this. Means. War. Filled with tons of romance, rivalry, and passive-aggressive dog walking, Amy Spalding delivers a hilariously relatable high school story that’s sure to have you falling for The New Guy.
My Thoughts: I'm long overdue for some sappy high school romance story. Plus, this one sounds unique!
