Description from Goodreads:
Wren Caswell is average. Ranked in the middle of her class at Sacred Heart, she’s not popular, but not a social misfit. Wren is the quiet, “good” girl who's always done what she's supposed to—only now in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change, but doesn’t know how.
Grayson Barrett was the king of St. Gabe’s. Star of the lacrosse team, top of his class, on a fast track to a brilliant future—until he was expelled for being a “term paper pimp.” Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change, but doesn’t know how.
One fateful night their paths cross when Wren, working at her family’s Arthurian-themed catering hall, performs the Heimlich on Gray as he chokes on a cocktail weenie, saving his life literally and figuratively. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are—and falling in love.
Why I can't wait:
This book looks several degrees of adorable. That alone brings out my grabby hands. Plus, this is a debut and I like trying out new authors. NEW THINGS ARE FUN. Also, this cover...I want it. To pet. To look at. To have and to hold on my shelf for all eternity. So yeah. And she saves his life! I like that. I like the fact that this is about love, too. I LIKE A LOT OF THINGS ABOUT THIS ONE. Which is why I want to read it. Or, ahem, which is why I can' t wait to read it. ;)
