Boys are so much better in books. At least according to Merrilee Campbell, fifteen, who thinks real-life chivalry is dead and there’d be nothing more romantic than having a guy woo her like the heroes in classic stories. Then she, her best friend, Eliza, and her younger sister, Rory, transfer to Reginald R. Hero Prep—where all the boys look like they've stepped off the pages of a romance novel. Merri can hardly walk across the quad without running into someone who reminds her of Romeo.
When the brooding and complicated Monroe Stratford scales Merri’s trellis in an effort to make her his, she thinks she might be Juliet incarnate. But as she works her way through her literature curriculum under the guidance of an enigmatic teacher, Merri’s tale begins to unfold in ways she couldn’t have imagined. Merri soon realizes that only she is in charge of her story. And it is a truth universally acknowledged that first impressions can be deceiving . . .

The book starts out by letting us all in with the basic facts about her life-Merrilee- she explains it to us. She starts out at a new school. She used to go to an exclusive all girls school, and now she will/is attending a boys AND girls school. She is hopping very dearly that she will be able to find her one true love. And she does! Well at least she thought so. He is beautiful ,as she describe, but turned out to be a SUPER clingy and rude boy. He treated her right, kinda. Now there’s the other boy, who was very rude at first. Who may have started out with Merrillee on a wrong foot. But Merrilee realizes first impressions can easily be wrong in most instances.The book was wonderful aI recomend it to anyone who loves a plot twist WHILE we also have the wonderful feeling of love
