Teen Tuesday Pick: Meant to Be by Lauren MorrillMeant to be, or not meant to be...that is the question.
It's one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she's queen of following rules and being prepared. That's why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that's also why she's chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB ("meant to be").
But this spring break, Julia's rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she's partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love.
Meant to Be is Lauren Morrill's first novel - visit her website at www.laurenmorrill.com. I am looking forward to reading this one myself - and let's me honest, isn't the cover fabulous? Robin Benway, author says this about the book, "Star-crossed characters, hilarious dalogue, and a perfect London setting. I loved Meant to Be!"
