Reel him in. Make him love you. Break his heart? Think How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days for contemporary YA romance readers. A sure bet for anyone in search of a heartwarming, laugh-out-loud love story that will charm their socks off.
Lark is the queen of breakups. When she ends things with a boy, there are never any hard feelings. Sometimes he doesn't even realize that she broke up with him. And that's exactly how Lark likes it. What's the point in hurting people? Or getting hurt?
Her best friends, Cooper and Katie, think Lark's dating pattern is tragic. How can she know what love is if she refuses to take risks? They dare her to finally have a bad breakup, one that matters. To appease her friends, Lark selects "Undateable" Ardy Tate as her target. He's a mysterious challenge and completely different from any guy she's ever dated. Can she win him over? Will she break his heart? Or will the Queen of Breakups have her heart broken?
Fall in love with another YA romance from Jen Klein, the author of Shuffle, Repeat, which SLJ praised as "addictive. Fans of Deb Caletti and Sarah Dessen will enjoy this sweet romance."
In Lark's senior year of high school, her best friends decide she needs to change her romantic m.o. They're tired of her moving through boys, then getting them to dump her before it gets serious. Try something real, her friends say, with someone who's not like anyone she's ever dated ("someone who's not popular, who isn't a team captain or an honor roll student") which is where Ardy comes in. He has just transferred to Lark's school, and word is that he's "undateable," but he's cute, and when Lark gets to know him, she sees that he's weird in a good way substantial, unique. But after she starts snooping into why he transferred rather than asking him, things get messy. Klein (Shuffle, Repeat) shows how Lark flirts to slide through life without letting anyone get too close, and how Ardy's unconventionality frees Lark to be herself. Lark and Ardy feel genuine, and readers will become invested not only in their relationship but also in the risk-taking new Lark who emerges, who 'fesses up to mistakes and tries to fix them. Ages 12 up.
