Cute and quirky read that any book lover can relate to! Phoebe is the ultimate book nerd who tries to bring her favorite characters experiences into the “real” world to help her deal with the ins and outs of teen romance. She uses her favorite heroines storylines in landing their “book boyfriends” to help her get the boy she likes to notice her. Phoebe is quirky, funny, and a diehard romantic. The story is full of teenage angst with laughter, tears, and romance thrown in the mix. A great read and I definitely recommend it!
In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably one filled with magic and a hot paranormal love interest. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary.
Everything changes when Phoebe learns that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her. So, Phoebe turns to the heroines in her favorite books for advice on a personality overhaul. Becoming as awesome as her book characters isn’t as easy as it sounds and when another girl nets Dev for herself right from under Phoebe’s nose, she’s crushed.
Then, to up the suckage, she gets assigned as his co-counselor at a sixth grade camp and has to spend an entire week tied to the hip with the one guy on the planet she wanted to avoid. Can she make it through the potential danger of romantic bonfires and nature walks without Dev figuring out she’s still not over him, or will her counseling career end in emotional disaster? Can she ever go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing?
