Banner Spurlock knew the moment that he walked into Kilgore High School and saw Perry Street that life was about to get interesting.
Forced to move due to a problem at home, a problem in the form of his ex-best friend hating him for something that Banner’s father did, Banner doesn’t think very much could improve in his life.
He left his status as king of Benton High School behind and moved to a new school where not only would he have to try out for a new football team and prove himself, but he’d also have to find a place for himself in the hierarchy.
Only, the moment that he arrives, he knows that finding a place for himself won’t be too hard. Especially when his reputation follows him all the way to Kilgore, Texas.
Perry Street hates school. She hates her peers—most of them anyway—and she hates her classes. All she wants to do is finish her senior year, graduate, and find a place that will give her a full scholarship so that she doesn’t have to be stuck here forever.
That’s her goal, anyway.
Then she walks into first period, on her first day of her senior year, and sits down. Seconds later, he walks in and changes every single plan she’s ever made.
It isn’t long before Perry starts to fall for the bad boy who doesn’t care who he does and doesn’t impress. The boy makes her heart flutter. The boy makes her want things that she’s never wanted before. Not ever.
The boy brings trouble with him that nearly kills her.
This is Banner Spurlock and Perry Street’s story. I don’t normally read YA/NA books but Lani Lynn Vale’s writing style is one I enjoy. Somethin’ About That Boy was an emotional and well written story with characters that are likeable and easy to relate too.
This was a good read, with drama, angst and sweet romance with a hero and heroine who you cannot help but fall for. The situations certainly took me back to my teenage years and I have to say I am glad that I am no longer in that age group.
Although a stand alone, there are some familiar faces who pop up and it was great to catch up with them.
