Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist meets Easy A in this hilariously realistic story of sneaking out, making out, and playing in a band.
After catching their bandmates in a compromising position, sixteen-year-old Los Angelenos Riley and Reid become painfully aware of the romance missing from their own lives. And so a pact is formed: they'll both try to make something happen with their respective crushes and document the experiences in a shared notebook.
While Reid struggles with the moral dilemma of adopting a dog to win over someone's heart, Riley tries to make progress with Ted Callahan, who she's been obsessed with forever-His floppy hair! His undeniable intelligence! But suddenly cute guys are popping up everywhere. How did she never notice them before?! With their love lives going from 0 to 60 in the blink of an eye, Riley and Reid realize the results of their pact may be more than they bargained for. [goodreads]
Okay so, after reading that description is anyone else wondering if Riley and Reid find romance with each other?! I know I am! Amy Spalding has such a unique, unforgettable voice in the YA community and I am so psyched to read this novel from her in 2015. It sounds every bit fun, but I know she'll apply that authentic sense of depth and emotion she's so well-crafted, too.
