Debut author Alex Evansley delivers a sweet summer romance in this inventive novel about a young heartthrob and teen author falling in love.
Teddy Sharpe is kind of famous. He might actually be on his way to being really famous, especially if he’d nailed an audition for the lead role in the movie adaption of the newest bestselling young adult book series. There’s just one problem: He totally blew the audition. And he’s stuck in a tiny North Carolina airport. And his maybe-ex-girlfriend kind of just broke up with him.
The weekend isn’t exactly looking good until Bennett Caldwell, author of the very book series he just auditioned for, takes pity on him and invites him to her family’s lake house. Away from the glitz and glam of Hollywood for a few days, Teddy starts to relax . . . and somehow he and Bennett just click. But dating is hard enough when you aren’t the subject of several dozen fanblogs, and the Internet is full of juicy gossip about Teddy and Bennett . . . gossip that Bennett might not be prepared to handle.
Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, Alex Evansley’s debut novel, written from both Bennett and Teddy’s perspectives, will have teens laughing, swooning, and falling in love along with these fantastically relatable characters.
What a great read! I absolutely loved this book! I am shocked to find out that this is Alex Evansley’s debut novel! This book gave me all the feels!
Teddy Sharpe, kinda famous actor, gets the opportunity to audition for the lead role in Parachutes, a novel being adapted to the big screen.
After basically being dumped by his girlfriend over text, and stranded in a North Carolina airport, he spends the weekend with Bennett and her family, only to find out that Bennett is the author of the novel he auditioned for. (And published at 16… WHAT?!?!)
I don’t want to give too much away, but I could write about this book forever!
The characters are rich and complex. I found myself wanting to be friends with them… and I found myself wanting to choke Liz at times. The storylines entertaining – I wanted to keep turning pages to see what happened next!
The lingo was a bit hard for me to follow at times. (I didn’t think I was that far out of the loop, but this made me feel old! I think when using the language that seems to be made for social media and texting, it is helpful to provide an explanation, as not all readers are young adult!
I highly recommend this for any fans of angsty young adult romance! You will not be disappointed!
