Pretty and popular track star Marijke Monti is confident about almost everything – she’s got great friends, a great family, and she’s on her way to the State Track Championship. In fact, the only thing Marijke isn’t confident about is her relationship with Tommy Lawson.

Lily Spencer has spent her entire high school career preparing for the future – she’s participated in every extracurricular activity and volunteer committee she could. But, at home, she watches her mother go on date after date with dud-dudes, still searching for “the one.” Lily realizes that she’s about to graduate and still hasn’t even had a boyfriend.

While they live on each other’s periphery at school, Lily and Marijke never seemed to have much in common; but, after a coincidental meeting at the movie theater, Lily gets an idea – why can’t life be like a movie? Why can’t they set up their perfect romantic situations, just in time for their senior prom, using movie techniques?

Once the girls come up with the perfect plans, they commit themselves to being secret cohorts and, just like in the movies, drama ensues.

This is the year for super cute YA contemporaries I guess! Being a lover of romantic comedies, hopefully this will be a super cute mish-mash of fun. Plus who doesn’t want their life to work out like a (cute rom-com) movie!

Also, thanks to Bloomsbury USA Childrens & Netgalley for the eARC! Can’t wait to start it (:

    I haven’t heard of this book, but it sounds good. I’ve been reading a lot of contemporaries lately.

  4. It does seem like it is! I’ve seen tons of cute ones so far (though by far Royally Lost is the one I’m the most disappointed in) 🙁 Hope you enjoy this one though!

  5. Nice pick, I hadn’t heard of this one before either but it sounds really good! I’m not really a contemporary fan but will definitely look out for a copy when it’s published 🙂

    My WoW!

  6. I love YA romantic comedies and glad to see more are coming out because I couldn’t find a whole lot for awhile. Great choice. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  7. Awesome pick Cyn! 🙂 I can’t wait for this one. The blurb sounds super cute and I can’t wait for it after reading her other novel Taste Test last year.

  8. This one sounds so cute! I haven’t been accepted on Netgalley yet, but I’m hoping! 😀 Great pick Cyn!
