My Review: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 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.
This was fine -- not amazing but not bad. It was cute and predictable and fun. I liked Jules at first but then she became a really bad friend even though she was surrounded by people that were so good to her and such good friends. Alex was ok -- there was definitely insta-like without much explanation on his part but it worked and he and Jules were super cute together. I don't have any real complaints about this one except that I probably won't remember it in a month.
I would recommend this to anyone that likes cute YA. There was nothing exceptional about this one but it was cute and a quick read. I definitely don't read very much YA anymore but I recently really liked In Real Life, released earlier this year. This one also reminded me of Smart Girls Get What They Want. And, if you're looking for more YA involving the new guy being a celebrity, Unmaking Hunter Kennedy is one of my all time favorites! The New Guy came out earlier this week on April 5, 2016, and you can purchase HERE!
As we walk back to my car and I drive to my house, I keep thinking of ways I could kiss him. It's not that I in any way feel qualified to make the first move, but my lips are actually tingling. Even my lips know that maybe it's time.
