Beschreibung des Verlags
This enchanting debut teen romance novel, which follows one girl across the Atlantic in a quest to find adventure, love (preferably with a guy with a cute accent), and maybe even herself, is perfect for fans of Kasie West and Stephanie Perkins.
After a horrifying public rejection by her crush, Ellie Nichols does what any girl would do: she flees the country. To be more precise, she joins her high school’s study abroad trip to England. While most of her classmates are there to take honors courses and pad their college applications, Ellie is on a quest to rebuild her reputation and self-confidence. And nothing is more of a confidence booster than getting a hot British boyfriend.
When Ellie meets Will, a gorgeous and charming Brit, she vows to avoid making the same mistakes she did with the last guy she liked. Which is why she strikes up a bargain with Dev, an overachieving classmate who she’s never clicked with, but who does seem to know a lot about the things Will is interested in: If he helps her win over her crush, then she’ll help him win over his.
But even as Ellie embarks on a whirlwind romance, she still needs to figure out if this is actually the answer to all her problems . . . and whether the perfect boyfriend is actually the perfect boy for her.
Don't miss this teen romance book, for girls 13-16 and up as well as adult readers who enjoy a well-written and fun teen romance novel.
After a humiliating public rejection goes viral, Washington, D.C., high school senior Ellie, 17, swaps places with the ex-friend who's now dating her crush, hastily joining a rigorous study abroad program. Determined to leave her embarrassment and the happy couple behind, Ellie plans to skate by academically while taking in England and landing a hot British boyfriend. Swiftly checking goals off her list, she launches into a relationship with dashing Will, whose good looks and expensive tastes more than make up for their lack of common interests and the lies Ellie finds herself telling to win him over. She also forms unexpected bonds with fellow American exchange students, including studious roommate Sage and Dev, a frequent study partner from her high school whose easy banter causes her to question what she truly wants, romantically and for her future. Boyce attains believable growth for Ellie, her insecurity and lack of direction giving way to a developing self-confidence as she opens herself up to new experiences and people while tapping into her passion for gardening and art. Boyce keeps lighthearted humor and romance at the forefront, delivering a satisfying happy-for-now ending to a feel-good rom-com. Ages 13 up. \n
