Summary from Goodreads:
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.
Reasons why I want to read this book:
1) COVER: Look at that cover. SO SWOON-WORTHY. Just like Kelly Fiore's other book, Taste Test, this cover just draws me in. Oh have you not seen the cover of Taste Test? Go on, look it up. I'll wait...
DID YOU SEE HOW AWESOME THE COVER FOR TASTE TEST IS?
For those of you who were too lazy to look it up, here it is:
I call is simplistic and sweet. I am loving these book covers from Kelly Fiore!
2) GENRE: 2014 is going to be THE YEAR of YA contemporary. *Takes deep breath* TRY TO CALM DOWN, JAYNE.
3) SUMMARY: This summary gives me all kinds of WANT-TO-READ-NOW bloggery feels.
